Letter: Facts on climate change refute letter denying reality of science

Wednesday's edition had a long letter from George C. Kaulbach of Cornelia attempting to show climate change is a hoax. I realize you editors need to fill space on the editorial page with something, but must you do it with letters that leave the reading public with the impression that all folks in North Georgia just came in from the turnip patch, or get their data from a recollection of the drought of 1999 in Cornelia?

Letter: Member of PSC didn’t factor in real human cost of nuclear power

The recent commentary by Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols defending conduct of the PSC against criticism from left-leaning critics who have been quote "loud and proud" against nuclear energy is misleading. Commissioner Echols suggests electric rates in Georgia, which include the cost of nuclear power projects ,are about 14 percent below the national average. This does not represent the true cost of nuclear power. The true cost is reflected only when you include catastrophic incidents like the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi meltdown event in Japan, the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown in Ukraine, and the 1979 Three Mile Island meltdown at Harrisburg, Pa ...

Letter: John Glenn’s vision, courage showed us the true greatness of America

On Sept. 11, 2001, the world changed and I began telling people that the American space program, and many other things American, had been set back by 50 years. On Nov. 9, I changed my prediction again. A person advocating Make America Great Again had become president-elect, and that person has a distorted version of what a great America looks like and represents.

Letter: Price understands health care law’s problems better than anyone in DC

Tom Crawford misleads on health care. When Obamacare was passed with the famous quote by Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi that "we need to pass it to find out what is in it," few if any in Congress actually took the time and effort to review it. Certainly no Democrats, certainly not the president and very few Republicans. However, one person who did was Rep. Tom Price, a very respected and intelligent doctor who also happens to be a congressman.

Letter: By any name, it’s hard to make a strong case for climate change

Those who push global warming changed the designation to "climate change." The reason being that in the last 150 years, earth temperature has increased just a little above 1 degree Fahrenheit. One degree warmer isn't significant.
