Seattle Times letters to the editor

Global warming

Seawater for everyone

I’m pleased to see Greg Gordon’s inset box explaining that climate scientists really don’t fully understand the role of water vapor, the most important greenhouse gas, in the atmosphere [“Amateur dreams up way to curb warming of planet,” Nation & World, Dec. 21]. Their complicated computer models of Earth’s atmosphere and of the future of our climate (on which all projections of future climate are based) are very uncertain.

However, I believe we can avoid global warming if Ace’s idea is implemented. His idea also will protect us from several other equally likely catastrophes, such as elephants trampling Seattle’s flower gardens.
