Letter to the Editor: Unaffiliated candidate Bill Barron’s unusual campaign

OPINION—There was a quiet revolutionary event in St George recently. Bill Barron, an unaffiliated candidate for Utah 2nd Congressional District seat in the US Congress, rode his bike into town, staging a small event at Confluence Park on a leg of his 600 mile one-week campaign through the district.

“Unaffiliated” means he is not running with any support from an established political party. He has one major issue in his platform: Climate Change, the largest threat facing the world, and one that other candidates will not even mention. Why? The fossil fuel industry, which is causing Climate Change, spends a lot of money in politics.

Running to win an election is expensive, and candidates end up supporting the people and industries that enable them to win. They are paid to make no waves. Bill shows incredible courage on this stand, taking leave from his family and job as a carpenter to make a statement. Many elections in this state are decided before ballots are cast. Of course Bill won’t win, but his statement is important. Consider making that statement by voting for Bill.

    Can candidate Bill tell me what century the weather has not changed? I don’t think anyone should need the govt. to protect them from changing weather, in fact given govt’s track record its best to keep the govt. from touching anything. Maybe as the nutter rides his bike around he will learn about the effects of that glowing ball of fire in the sky but it is more likely he will just blame “the rich capitalists” for that too.

      Lance got his spring wound tight by the AM radio gas bags. He knows true Americans don’t believe the pointy headed climate scientists.

    Climate change is the biggest threat to the world? Give it a rest. Global temperatures have remained the same for the last 16, 20 or 26 years, depending on whether surface temperatures or two different satellite measurement processes for upper atmospheric temperatures are used. NO CLIMATE CHANGE MODEL CAN EXPLAIN THIS LACK OF TEMPERATURE CHANGE FOR THIS LENGTH OF TIME. REPEAT, NOT ONE. Therefore the models are wrong. Despite Al Gore’s claim that “the science is settled,” this is obviously not true. And for “warmist” true believers who want to eliminate fossil fuels, only nuclear power can supply continuous power day and night. Does Bill Barron support nuclear power? If not, he’s not serious.

    Carbon, schmarbon dude. The second coming is at hand and the Lord wants all of the coal burned before then.

    Gee, it seems like I remember reading something about the “Ice Age” at some time or another. Now if that is fact, and not just some scientific myth, how did it come about that the world had an ice age, and how did it come about that the ice age passed? I do believe all this was before fossil fuels.
    Come on folks, get a grip on reality.

      USA, USA, USA! Human caused climate change can’t be happening now because we know the climate changed in the past. You climate scientists shut your pie holes and show some patriotism.

    Pure political baloney! Hype! When they drilled into the polar ice caps they saw climate change through the centuries. This is a normal cycle. Al Gore uses more of a carbon footprint that most Americans, he is like all the others, an opportunist! If SUV’s and greenhouse gases are the cause of climate change
    why are the polar ice caps on mars melting???? Why, you educated idiots, answer that. It’s because of the solar storms according to non politicized common sense people. Climate change is all about control and don’t forget it. Any politician that tells you different should be voted out of office! Get real people study this issue. You can go to suspicious0bservers.com and get a common sense view of what’s happening to our universe now.

      Not sure if satirical or just redneck with soft cranium. Clarification please PACKERBACKER.

    He would be better than the Washington County assessors office. We need
    a Commision that will hold the Assessors office accountable.
