Climate change just isn't what it used to be. Case in point: The number of otherwise intelligent people who are saying that all the cold weather (in the East) and rain (here at home) are causing them to lose faith in the gospel of global warming. To their way of thinking, it's fine and good to be bellyaching about rising sea levels when it's 100 degrees outside. It's easy to remember to carry around your reusable tote bag when drought begets parched hillsides, which beget wildfires, which beget air that smells like rotisserie chicken minus the chicken.

When Laurie David, environmental activist extraordinaire, sees people wending down the streets in Hummers, she just can't help herself. "I have to send them negative vibes and sometimes I get busted," she admits. "I'm like scowling at a woman driving a Hummer and she sees me, and her window goes down, and I'm forced to say, 'Do you know what you're driving? How many miles a gallon do you get in that?'

Re "Alone on the shrinking ice," Opinion, April 21 I applaud Laurie David's efforts, but she is incorrect to state that "the debate [is] firmly behind us." One of Karl Rove's successes has been to use the uncertainty inherent in the scientific method as a call to inaction by politicians and to create a perverse suspicion of scientists' motives. A review of nearly 100 articles from top scientific journals found unanimous support for human effect on global warming, and yet the administration continues to push the party line that "we just don't know for sure, so there's nothing we can do."

Although he's married to a committed activist, Larry David, who with his HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has elevated the selfish lout to an art form, says he didn't give a whit about the environment until it affected him personally. At a May 6 fundraiser for the Natural Resources Defense Council, which for more than 30 years has helped write and defend environmental statutes such as the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act, he explained his transformation in a delicious comic bit.

If you've got solar panels on your roof, "green" lightbulbs in your lamps and a Prius in the garage, Laurie David has no problem with you. It's all the other energy-sapping, gas-guzzling Americans she's out to convert, and the environmental crusader has put together a nice little Earth Day recruiting film aimed at doing just that.

Students of California's history of gold and oil rushes know it's filled with examples of profiteering, conspiracy, influence-peddling and other chicanery. So there's no reason the story should be any different with that liquid gold of the 21st century, water. That's the theme of a lawsuit filed a few weeks ago alleging there's something smelly about how a group of private interests — notably a huge agribusiness owned by the wealthy Southern California couple Stewart and Lynda Resnick — got control of an underground water storage project the state had already spent $75 million to develop.

Regarding the article on playwright Lynn Siefert ("The Unlikeliest of Love Stories," by Janice Arkatov, Dec. 3): Roseanne did not stage the initial reading of "Little Egypt." It was the premiere presentation of the "One Night Only" benefit, a celebrity play-reading series held on occasional Mondays at the Coronet Theatre that I produce. She was part of a cast that included Laurie Metcalf, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Annie Potts and Gregg Henry. It was a brilliant evening and the series continues.
