Lincoln Journal Star

The Lincoln Journal Star is located at 926 P St.

The Lincoln Journal Star needs to get out of the left-wing echo-chambers when making editorials.

The editorial board bought in to the whole man-made climate change theory ("Climate plan makes sense for Nebraska," Feb. 16) without appreciation as to how flawed the theory is or how concerns have been exaggerated.

The Copenhagen Consensus was founded by Bjorn Lomborg, an environmentalist, who believes the climate change theory but says it does not warrant the attention as there is a vast number of more important problems to address. The Consensus has been around for more than 10 years making suggestions to policy makers.

The very next day, an editorial on sales tax was published (“Sales tax increase for road justified," Feb. 17). Is the paper aware the state has already increased the gasoline tax to improve roads? In addition, since the sales tax has so many exemptions, how about considering removing some of the exemptions before increasing the rate?
