Weekly Poll
Do you agree with U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal's (D-Santa Barbara) decision to attend Trump's inauguration?

Yes. He should definitely go and show respect for the new president.
I agree that he should attend to show Trump that Latinos have a strong voice in our government.
No. He should stand in solidarity with U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) and other congressional members who aren't attending.
I don't care what he does on inauguration day, as long as he does a good job as a congressman.

Public opinion is shifting

By Scott Secrest - Arroyo Grande

Mr. Wechter’s recent opinion piece on climate change is a puzzling grab bag of misapplied logic that was probably too confused itself to confuse many New Times readers (“Climate change nonsense,” July 3). Each “point” presented is easily refuted by a simple review of the facts and conclusions of current climate science, widely available and broadly supported. Those denying human activity caused climate change, and/or promoting hopelessness of action are part of a dying tribe that is becoming more aggressive and irrational as public opinion shifts against their nonsense.
