In response to Martin Ulstein’s letter published in the print issue on April 14, claiming “GloBull” warming is a hoax: Shame on the Bellevue Reporter for allowing people to state outright lies. Opinion about whether the EPA is necessary or not is perfectly fair, opinions about whether Trump is a good president or not are also fine.
Outright lies like “a single volcano can put out more CO2 than an entire industrialized nation” should not be published. A single web search on this reveals a large number of reputable sources from around the world that debunk this exact claim. For example: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/earthtalks-volcanoes-or-humans/ or https://www.theguardian.com/environment/blog/2010/apr /21/iceland-volcano-climate-skeptics.
