U.S. produces more gas

(Re: “Copenhagen was a success — for the Chinese,” Danish Plan, Dec. 31.) Paul Danish’s implication that the Copenhagen accord, such as it is, is unfairly advantageous to China and other developing countries ignores the simple and overwhelming fact that China’s per ...

Offer a coal alternative

0
(Re: “Another lump of coal,” Danish Plan, Dec. 17.) While I found the article by Mr. Danish amusing, he does nothing to propose where the computing center should have been built and thus what type of electrical generation should be used. Had the center been built ...

Dispensaries, unite!

Danish omits climate facts

0
(Re: “Climategate,” Danish Plan, Dec. 3.) That Paul Danish finds “corrupt science” in the “Climategate” e-mails says less about how science is actually done and more about his own willingness to distort and omit facts...

‘Illegal aliens’ crush the U.S.

0
(Re: “No man’s land,” cover story, Dec. 3.) Your article on students who are illegal aliens (no, I’m not going to use the euphemism “undocumented immigrants”) was another example of one-sided, emotional coverage of this issue without an objective analysis of the ...

CORRECTION: There were two Jeff Buckley tribute bands that played this week in Boulder. The photo accompanying the Nov. 12 article, “To honor a legacy,” depicted another Jeff Buckley tribute band, Your Sweet Return. The opening acts for the show at the Laughing Goat ...

Borlaug didn’t do GMOs

0
(Re: “The man who saved one billion lives,” Danish Plan, Oct. 22.) The Danish Plan is also to misinform, again evidenced in the Borlaug article. I’m disappointed Danish continues to blur his perception when he lumps facts with GMO fantasy...

Cheap racial slam

0
(Re: “New Age outrage,” Uncensored, Oct. 29.) I must write to protest Pamela White’s derogatory use of the term “white folks” in her recent column, especially given its “there goes the neighborhood” context. Going for a cheap laugh at the expense of European-...

Cell phones and sex

0
(Re: “Sex vs. cell phones,” In Case You Missed It, Oct. 15.) I read the snippet on “sex vs. cell phones” and wanted to point out that for many people cell phones are major avenues for foreplay. Having completed my dissertation on electronic intimacy, I can ...
