I'm disappointed

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.

    They are too busy with dying women in Florida, making okay for doctors not to treat gays and fucking with Social Security to worry about some silly ol’ tree.

    And the scourge of Evolutionism. Don’t forget that one.

    Actually, I’m amazed there hasn’t been more of reaction concerning McGuire running for school board. I think everybody’s a little too interested in the forest use plan … and gophers.
