* Polar cities remain off the media radar (interview)

Dear Editor,

In a recent column, Jeff Jacoby noted that "[climate] science isn't areligion, and those who dispute its leading theory are not heretics". Good point. Jacoby added: "Much remains to be learned about how andwhy climate changes, and there is neither virtue nor wisdom in an emotional rush to counter global warming - especially if what's comingis a global Big Chill".

We need all the humor we can get when it comes to the issues of global warming and climate change. However, in the event that global warming is for real, and that in the far distant future, perhaps in the year 2500 or so, survivors of climate change have to live in "polar cities" along the Arctic Circle, it won't be a laughing matter anymore. We need to put all of our heads together and find a way out of this mess, no matter which side of the political aisle we are on. You never heard of "polar cities"? Google the term and see what the future might hold. It's not a pretty picture, and it's not funny.
