Start thinking about solutions

Is the current increase in global surface temperatures human-induced, or is it part of natural climate cycles? Phil Edmunds (Letters, April 27) asks why glaciers at Yoho National Park in Canada receded during the late 1880s, before modern human activity was significantly influencing the environment.

A government that really works

The vision that many conservatives have about returning to what they see as the “original” concepts of the Constitution reminds me more of a bad movie called “The Articles of Confederation,” subtitled “How Not to be the United States of America.”

Defend water quality

Like most of our neighbors last week, we received the boilerplate 2015 water quality report from the State College Borough Water Authority with our quarterly water bill. I read the report carefully, as usual, and at first I felt reassured and grateful that our water still flows clear and potable.

Passion and pride

For the past five years, like many other Penn State alumni and residents of central Pennsylvania, I have cheered at my seat in Beaver Stadium next to the same person on seven fall Saturdays each year.

Potential for progress

Most campaign promises have a way of attenuating if not disappearing when a successful candidate is confronted with the reality of practical limits and competing priorities, and I am sure Donald Trump’s nonsensical promise to find, detain, process and deport 11 million illegals in two years would be no different.

What kind of quality of life?

In response to Andy Lau’s letter (CDT, 4/25) in which he stated that Cubans enjoy a “decent quality of life,” I’d like to point out that (according to the website Trading Economics), in 2014 the average wage in Cuba was at an all-time monthly high of 584 Cuban pesos ... which in U.S. dollars is just more than $22 per month. I’m not sure how anyone can consider this a “decent quality of life.” Not to mention the innumerable human rights abuses and abundant lack of freedoms on the island.

Nuclear energy gets short shrift

Two recent articles in the CDT on energy were interesting and timely. However, although the words nuclear energy were mentioned in passing, the writers gave short shrift to the importance and contribution of nuclear energy in Pennsylvania.

Calling for caution

Thank you to the CDT for keeping the community on top of the biosolids controversy (4/20). I’m retired now, but when I worked for the DEP’s Bureau of Solid Waste Management as a soil scientist, I evaluated sites proposed for biosolids (then known as sludge, before clever PR types rebranded the human waste byproducts).
