Opinion roundup from the Left: Ferguson’s legacy; surviving climate change; a ‘funeral’ to take note of


A roundup of editorials Tuesday includes a look  at the lingering damage from Ferguson; the argument of climate control; and a ceremony in Columbus, Georgia, that people across the country should take note of.

Here are some opinions from the Left.

1. The Lingering Damage of Ferguson's Racism 

From the New York Times: The 2014 police shooting in the Missouri town led to the discovery of systemic bigotry. That discovery still haunts the city.

2. Stop the sniping about climate change

From the Charlotte Observer: The number of extreme natural disasters have quadrupled since 1970, but the death tolls from those disasters have fallen. We can adapt, if we can stop sniping. 

3. Monday ceremony offered thoughtful, moving words about senseless violence

From the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer: It was a funeral procession that focused a message – too many young black people are dying.
