To The Editor: There may be a lot of
The Weirs Times was first published in 1883 by Mathew H. Calvert. The newspaper, then named Calvert’s Weirs Times and Tourists’ Gazette, was published until Mr. Calvert’s death in 1902.
One of the most remarkable features of the publication was a map of Lake Winnipesaukee which occupied the center spread of the paper. Readers will find the same map reprinted on the center pages of this, and every issue.
The new Weirs Times was re-established in 1992 and strives to maintain the patriotic spirit of its predecessor as well as his devotion to the interests of Lake Winnipesaukee and vicinity.
Locally owned for over 19 years, this publication is devoted to printing the stories of the people and places that make New Hampshire the best place in the world to live. No, none of the daily grind news will be found in these pages, just the good stuff.
30,000 copies are distributed every week in the Lakes Region/Concord area. 15,000 delivered to

intelligent letters in your paper and yet none I’ve seen demonstrate the simple understanding of why our nation is in such desperate situations. The reason for our calamitous collapse as a great na- tion is clear; the action of elected Democrats and Republicans. These leg- islators, collectively the “Establishment”, have long led us to self de- struction. It is time for anyone who is dissatis- fied with our government to revolt. It is so easy. In November 2012, vote
for a candidate who is not a Democrat or a Republi- can. Naive you say? No. What is naive is continu- ing to vote for the Estab- lishment and thinking that somehow they will make us a responsible viable nation again after such abundant evidence to the contrary. Don’t you believe yet what they have relentlessly shown you? They only take care of themselves. Vote wise- ly in November before you lose the opportunity to even do that. Protect your freedom. Be part of the necessary revolu- tion while it can still be peaceful. Down with the Establishment!

TM Silly Season
To the Editor: The silly season is start-
ing early this year. The “cl imate catastrophe” campaign is full upon us, perhaps in an attempt to inject it into the political campaigns. When the global warming hysteria wore thin a few years ago, the more moderate term “climate change” seemed to hit the right note. Then global warming’s cachet completely wore off with Climategate and a series of NASA reports that the world climate is in fact quite stable, and if any- thing appears to have begun cooling for the past ten to twelve years. This, despite the fact that CO2 levels are reported by the UN to have reached new highs. Our reps in Washington,
and most state govern- ments, have responded to this disconnect between temperatures and CO2 by leaving overt mention of “cap and trade” off the table - although the Pres- ident’s various green en- ergy scams are obviously partly motivated by the lingering, willful thought of reducing CO2. The great American
yawn that now greets “climate change” has put the radical left into deep despair. Likewise the cli- mate scientists who have milked the system aren’t too keen to look for real work. There are too many lucrative EPA contracts and foundation funding sources that may dry
up. Time for a new, im- proved term to fright- en the public. So here comes “catastrophe”. The Environmental Defense Fund is running current internet ads that assure us that “The longer we wait to curb pollution, the steeper the cuts must be to avoid catastrophic cli- mate change”. Last week the Scientific
American editorialized that “Effective World Gov- ernment Will Be Needed to Stave Off Climate Ca- tastrophe.” “Disaster” and “war” are
also excellent attention- grabbers. Earlier this month, an International Herald Tribune (i.e, New York Times) editorial on the “climate war” warned us of a “disastrous in- crease in sea level and widespread drought.” This was aimed at those
with 20-second attention spans. Others may recall similar warnings in 1997, based on models predict- ing that sea level would rise one metre by 2005. Now the one-metre rise has been conveniently postponed for about 100 years. The editorial continues
the “war” theme by not- ing that some unidenti- fied grouping of the “US and five other countries” have set “climate war targets”: methane, soot, and hydrocarbons. These “account for about 30% to 40% of warming”. How’s that? Now that Americans aren’t buy- ing into the CO2 scam, the faux climatologists

are trying to tell us that human-generated HFCs, soot, and methane must be attacked. We should waste our money try- ing to reduce them (the group wants $15 million to start), while of course not giving up on CO2. Readers with good mem-
ories may recall that back in 2007 the IPCC (the International Panel of Climate Change) declared that human-generated CO2 accounted for 90% of AGM (anthropogenic global warming). Some- thing doesn’t add up, does it? If HFCs, soot, and methane account for up to 40%, and CO2 accounts for 90%, that makes it up to 130%! And that doesn’t take into account the percent- age contributed by water vapor, the most potent greenhouse gas. Therefore if the left can’t
use science to tag CO2 as the sole villain any more, they must switch to other targets (HFCs, soot, and methane) in their attempts to bring us back to the stone age. But somehow the logic seems to escape them that something more pro- found than greenhouse gases are affecting the climate as it continues into a cooling phase. Vastly more powerful forces than human-gen- erated emissions are re- sponsible for variations in a global climate that has been changing ever since humans began to notice the weather. There
