In your hopes and wishes for a brighter new year (editorial, 1-1), you wanted Republicans to be scientific about global climate change.
Let me add a wish for some real science. Why is it no longer called global warming? Earth is heated by the sun. A little uptick, and we are toast. A little tick down, and we are an ice ball.
Until scientists know what motivates the sun, please put your sledgehammer to some nonpartisan uses.
