Still another warning from Wilfred Candler regarding global warming, this time with a scary reference to 400,000 Hiroshima bombs (The Sunday Capital, April 9). His solution: “Remove fossil carbon from the atmosphere.”
Really? Has he thought this through? No more airlines, international shipping or farm equipment? This would cause worldwide economic collapse and mass starvation. Do he and others wish to live in a world like that?
Also, there would be no long-distance driving, given the range of battery-powered autos. What about home heating? Where will the electricity come from to illuminate and power our large cities? Certainly not from the limited capacity of solar panels and windmills. Nuclear power is a solution, perhaps, but there is another lobby against that.
Maybe Mr. Candler can explain what caused the Ice Age, and more importantly, what caused the glaciers to melt, given that there were no carbon emissions from humans at that time.
“Outstanding” is an understatement in response to The Sunday Capital insert “Retro Annapolis” (April 9) edited by Joshua McKerrow. Perhaps you can entertain the idea of publishing it as a book to truly memorialize it?
Among the foray of political news and community issues it is very grounding to immerse yourself in our history and pivotal moments. Yes, as I’m a civil engineer, the chronology of the Bay Bridge construction was my favorite.
This enormous effort by The Capital makes you realize how important photojournalism is, as pictures tell our story. This insert is worth reading over and over again, as you learn something new from our past each time.

I would like to express my deepest thanks to Anne Arundel Medical Center for all its help in coordinating my discharge on April 3.
I was informed on that date that my husband, who was in another hospital 30 miles away, was close to death. With the help of nurses, doctors and administrative staff — especially those on the sixth floor — I was able to be discharged in 20 minutes.
I was being held in observation, but under the circumstances they released me and I was able to be by his bedside, with family, when he passed away two hours later.
Their care and concern was exemplary. Their kindness will never be forgotten. My family and I feel so fortunate to be part of the AAMC community. They are the best.
Thank you to Gov. Larry Hogan for agreeing to ban the dangerous practice of fracking from our lovely, topographically diverse state — mountains down to the glorious Chesapeake, then on to the ocean.
Also, thanks go to all the environmentally concerned for their calls to their legislators and their demonstrations to support a complete ban of fracking. We need to protect our precious waters for drinking, our seafood and recreation. We don’t want earth tremors and quakes either. Common sense would dictate this ban after seeing what fracking has done to communities that did allow it to happen.
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has come out against limited harvesting of oyster beds in the bay. This is from an organization that never gives good marks for the bay’s health.
What a surprise. If it gave the bay good marks, its donations would dry up. Then it couldn’t do what it did in the past — build a multimillion-dollar building on the bay while being against anyone else building on the bay.
