THAT CHANGING CLIMATE! Why, it's happening every day. While pacing the floor the other night worrying about whether the South Beach Ritz-Carlton will be underwater in 10 years because of global warming, I came across this climate change item that calmed my nerves and gave me hope for a future climate balanced between cool and warm weather. The patriotic dissent of many climatologists can lead to rather intolerant reactions. Chauffeured operators need to be aware of this background drama in evaluating green vehicles, green programs, and green awareness. Cleaning up the air and saving on gasoline through green vehicles is worthwhile and effective. Irrational hysteria only produces green Kool-aid. -- M.R.
