Letter: What is climate change? The weather is changing

Editor,

A response Mr. Gunther’s editorial question of June 26. I have visited the destruction, and participated in cleanup, after five “one-hundred-year storms”, and one “five-hundred-year storm.”

At this pace we are going to have to change our rating system. These storms are unprecedented, the biggest on record, and in the words of people who have lived in these areas for seventy years, “Never seen anything like it.” Big storm dimensions are expanding.

If Mr. Gunther can show me a similar pattern of weather, on this continent, in the last four hundred years, I’ll treat him to a $21.95 breakfast at Freeland Café.
