Two views on climate change
In Dennis Prager’s last two columns on JewishJournal.com, he explained why he is skeptical about global warming. The Journal received so many responses to these columns that we felt we should open the debate further than usual. In addition to the letters-to-the-editor we have run of the past weeks, author and humorist Joey Green weighs in here, and Prager responds.

In my two columns on why thoughtful people might be skeptical about the apocalyptic global warming/climate change scenario, I addressed the issue with a seriousness and respect that Joey Green does not exhibit in his response. He apparently felt that sarcasm and put-downs comprise an adequate response.
