I was struck by the article on cattle losses in North Dakota [“N. Dakota delayed revealing oil spill,” news, Oct. 12].
It is the height of irony that this deeply red state, its representative supporting the shutdown and denying global warming, has suffered this loss and is whining about the lack of support from the federal government. While no single event can be blamed specifically on climate change, harsher storms across the planet are present in all the computer models of global warming. It’s time to wake up and smell the CO2.
