Failed climate legislation didn't kill Calvert Cliffs 3

Jay Hancock's blaming the Calvert Cliffs 3 setback on the failed passage of a climate bill doesn't show his usual careful analysis ("Lack of climate change bill helped kill new reactor," Oct. 10). Tampering with market pricing of energy sources because of unsubstantiated climate models is extremely risky. Hard empirical evidence shows climate changes prior to, and therefore uncaused by, fossil-fuel usage. No one has yet justified their claims that present climate change is uniquely man-made. Until that evidence is shown, let's not further cripple our fragile economy with more government interference.
