Letter: Global warming and cooling

June 23, 2017 — No one can seriously deny that man's existence on Earth has contributed to the warming of Earth's atmosphere. Scientists crudely date the widespread use of fire by man as 125,000 years ago. Obviously, the warming caused from those fires can't be measured. Today there are […]
