LETTER: The Biden Administration’s latest idiotic scheme

To the Editor:

I heard them say it and I was stricken with disbelief! It is such a preposterous plan that any sane mind has to be literally blown away by the idea. Here is what I heard on Fox News.

In order to slow the warming of our planet Earth, according to a Fox News report, the Climate Changers are planning to pump some kind of sulfur gas into the atmosphere that will blot out the sun’s rays here on Earth. It seems to me that Canada is presently doing a pretty good job of blotting out the sun with their smoke from their forests burning up. They claim that the fires will last all summer. Smoke now covers a majority of the states from the Mississippi River to the east. Am I to believe that the Canadians have no idea how to stop the fires? One idea would be to begin a massive logging operation well ahead of the fire line and clear cut a wide swath of timber all the way across the country ,if need be.

I remember studying, in school, that an asteroid struck Earth, a few million years ago, on the Yucatan Peninsula. The resulting explosion filled the atmosphere with smoke and debris that blotted out the sun for several hundreds or thousands of years. All vegetation died due to the lack of sunlight, therefore all plant eating animals died. This was followed by the death of all carnivores, like some species of the dinosaurs. Lack of the sun’s warming rays, caused the Earth to enter an ice age.

How much longer can we tolerate this insane way of thinking in our leadership? If you keep up with the information that comes out of Washington you already know that there are other schemes afloat that are bringing about distrust and potential destruction to our normal way of life. Total dependency on wind and solar to provide for our electricity needs is another fallacy. Electric cars and their associated huge batteries, which China will control, is another stupid idea. People don’t want them, but they are trying to force people to buy them. People’s wants and needs determine the market place, not the government mandates.

Another distressing Fox News item is, China is actively buying up our farmland. They already own nearly a half million acres and are still buying more. Some states are passing laws that would prevent that from happening, but they are late to the party.  I could go on, but I won’t-for now.

Remember, if you love the sun, and enjoy its many benefits, the Biden Administration is doing its best to take it away from you. They believe that they, and not God, should control the climate. You and I know better, don’t we?
