One letter arrives as if sucked into the vortex of another, something like two powerful thunderheads colliding over the middle of the county, creating all sorts of wind and havoc.
They speak of data and experts and opinions. They portend great insight, laying out science and history in detail. They are doused with perspective and seasoned with rancor.
But these letters don’t address our heaviest matters, such as war, healthcare or human rights.
No, their topic is climatology or, more specifically, global warming.
