Climate change legislation money can be better spent on world’s poor

Tony Magliano’s column in the Jan. 8 issue of The Criterion, “The ‘green’ pope’s message for the World Day of Peace,” states that due to climate change Catholic Relief Services is asking us to e-mail or call our two U.S. senators, urging that climate change legislation include at least $3.5 billion in 2012 for international adaptation programs designed to protect the world’s poor from the harsh reality of climate change.

I strongly support the actions in helping the poor and protecting the environment, but instead of spending billions on the fallacy of manmade global warming—not to mention all the money wasted at Copenhagen—why not direct that money toward helping the world’s poor due to the natural variations in the world’s climate?

- Tim Lattire, Sunman
