Thank you Tobey for an excellent and timely article on our melting glaciers [“Glaciers are melting, time to buy a boat for your grandkids,” July 28 issue].

I’d like to add that while some folks think the whole thing is a hoax, accredited scientists (and the rest of the world) reached consensus long ago.

The idea of a “debate” is largely misinformation spread by fossil fuel companies and their cronies.
Rather than focusing on only individual actions, I encourage everyone to strive for systemic solutions to climate change. Members of our community and our school are actively working on learning more about climate change, its effects and what we can do right here in town. It is up to us to encourage the assembly and our mayor to push for local solutions.
