Regarding “Stricken,” Aug. 20, Page 23:

The Sentinel editorial writer does a disservice to readers by employing extremist commentary. Quoting: “Climate change is the most dangerous earthly enemy we have ever faced. It tirelessly will destroy our fields, drown our cities, impoverish our children and drive tens of millions of refugees to flee their homes.”

Impoverish our children?

Equally extreme: “There will be no safe place” and “... fight the evil that is climate change.”

Readers understand climate change is not tireless nor does it tire. It certainly is not evil. Based on this editorial, the Sentinel is in need of an exorcism.
