The mailbox of 3/7/19 was exceptionally interesting by reason of the number of letters regarding our climate. This is encouraging. For what it's worth, here is my tour of the letters.

The first was by Rich Buckley. He anchors his arguments in the physics of David LaPoint. LaPoint is a contrarian on global warming. He has an entirely original theory of what's going on in the sun. I am not competent to judge it. What interests me is that LaPoint identifies himself as a physicist. Contrarians are frequently people who are quite intelligent but who have never engaged in climatology. Frequently they posit a conspiracy among the world's climatologists. What strikes me is that they are very obscure as to what motivates this conspiracy. Where they see a conspiracy, I see the formation of a scientific consensus.
