Whether the recent heat wave that La Cañada Flintridge residents suffered through is caused by global warming or a natural cyclical event, the push is now on reducing greenhouse gases and using energy-efficient technology. On July 31, Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a climate change and clean energy collaboration. At a meeting at the Port of Long Beach, Blair and Schwarzenegger signed an agreement on a collaborative effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through working with businesses, research in cause and effect, education and sharing knowledge.

As the sun sets and the winds begin to howl around the San Gabriel Mountains listen closely and you will hear the cry between the gusts -- "La Niña is back." "I call her the little lady with the big dry punch," said Jet Propulsion Laboratory climatologist Bill Patzert. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced the official return of La Niña earlier this month. La Niña is the cooling of ocean waters in the east-central equatorial Pacific. It is characterized by lower than normal pressure over Indonesia and northern Australia and higher than normal pressure over the eastern tropical Pacific.

  Letters to the Editor Global Hot Air The alphabet academics and avid science magazine readers, Beth Fabinsky and Rob Thompson, blame us for global warming. They cite scientific magazines to confirm their conclusions. Keep in mind that these are the same magazines our inventor of the Internet, Al Gore, references in his obsession with global warming. Now Al has been telling us, for over 30 years, that the sky is falling. Will someone please tell Al that the sky is still above him?

Singer Joni Mitchell may write that humans "really don't know clouds at all," but JPL scientists are about to change that with Friday's launch of two satellites whose mission is to reveal the inner secrets of clouds. CloudSat, managed by La Cañada's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is one of two spacecraft that will join three others in orbit around the Earth. The four will form the "A-Train" of weather and atmospheric satellites. The second satellite is Calipso, managed by Langley.

French President Nicholas Sarkozy said in a speech to foreign ambassadors recently that the return of intolerant religious faith is the biggest challenge facing the world — on par with the dangers of climate change. Do you agree? How do you draw a line that distinguishes your faith while keeping it away from a path toward intolerance? The French president is on to something. Religious intolerance is a big threat. While it would be easy to point fingers at the Taliban in Afghanistan who blew up two ancient statues of Buddha, we Christians have our own history of intolerance.

Letters to the Editor Bob Tanabe’s rant in your last issue had me laughing out loud. [“Communist Infiltration,” Our Readers Write, Sept. 27] Just one question: What’s a humor column doing in the opinion section? — Matt Bogen La Cañada   It’s been quite a week for simplistic, conspiracy theories. First it was Mahamoud Amadinejad’s bewildering holocaust denial, tirades against Zionism and his claim, against all objective evidence, that free speech thrives in his country, Iran’s women are not second-class citizens and that there is no discrimination against gays because there are no homosexuals in Iran.
