Climate change a colossal waste of time

I am glad to see that The Sun finally printed a factual response to so called man-made global warming ("Get past alarmism on global warming," Oct. 26). Writer Richard Haddad has it right and every one who has studied high school physics or chemistry should know carbon dioxide is released from sea water as temperature increases.

An additional point to be made is that the largest source of carbon dioxide in the world (greater than all power plants combined) is the thousands of square miles of decaying kelp beds in the Sargasso Sea near the equator in the Atlantic Ocean. Far too many of the "scientists" subscribing to the theory of man-made global warming are really political scientists trying to manipulate public opinion.

I agree our government is wasting far too many of our tax dollars combating this imagined threat.
