On Sunday the Chronicle had a front page article dealing with global warming’s effects on whitebark pines. In short, their habitat is warming, allowing mountain pine beetles to survive more easily and attack the pines. This is having an impact on a major source of food for grizzly bears and could lead to more confrontations with humans.
Seems like a solid enough article, but it deals with global warming. So far, though, we have no letters attacking the paper for saying global warming is real! It’s only been two days, granted, but if I don’t see any tomorrow I’m going to be very disappointed. This was front and center and it didn’t get the anti-environmentalists riled up? That’s just no fun.
UPDATE: Day 3, no letters. I’ve seriously overestimated the anti-global warming brigade.
UPDATE 2: Day 4, nothing.
