We recently highlighted the faulty logic of a pseudoscientific argument against addressing climate change: the proposition that because CO2 is necessary for plants, increasing emissions is good for the planet and the life it supports. Those who read, write or talk regularly about climate change and ecology are familiar with other anti-environmental arguments not coated with a scientific sheen.

To The Editor:

Negotiations are difficult by nature.  Managing negotiations between 195 countries is nearly impossible.  This was the dilemma facing the negotiators of the Paris climate Summit.  To solve it they brought in a unique management strategy.

'Floater' days remove a vast number more.

I am writing to alert dog loving Nelsonites that the off leash dog park by the lake is no longer safe to visit.

Dear Ms Stead:

The Globe and Mail has just written off the Green Party of Canada as irrelevant as a result of the election numbers they have found. I suggest they do their sums again.

In the three provinces where the Green Party have an elected MP and/or an elected MLA the results were as follows:
