By Ron Bryant. I appreciate the Observer’s reporting on the climate treaty but want to add some important facts from Cornell University’s Methane Project. Natural gas is not a “cleaner” option to coal, as methane, including that leaked/vented from natural gas operations, is 100 times worse than CO2.
By William Delamar. When President Donald Trump characterized the Paris climate accord as a choice between Pittsburg and Paris, he missed the point. This is a matter of voluntarily joining the vast majority of the Earth’s countries in recognizing the effects of human activity on the health of the Earth, and coming together to address the issue.
By Nancy Bryant. Yes, Mr. Rogers is correct in saying, “Many….approach climate change with a near-religious zeal.” That would be me, my loved ones, and many I know.

By Vickie Atkinson. Natural gas is a problem in itself, as William Schlesinger recently pointed out in an Nov. 23 Point of view “Duke University plant would turn away from renewable energy.” Although it burns cleaner than coal it is composed largely of methane, which is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Unfortunately Duke Energy continues to expand use of natural gas rather than prioritizing renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar.
