LETTERS: A matter of life and end of life

Editor: Why do we still argue about climate change and allow others to be willfully blind?

Editor:

There’s no way to get around this – global is local. So why do we still argue about climate change and allow others to hunker down and be willfully blind about the ways in which it is human caused?

We must step up and pay the price, whatever it takes, through taxes and ingenuity to curtail destabilizing weather and preserve the fragile lens surrounding Earth that makes you and future generations possible. Otherwise, life in each of our little communities will be unsustainable.

Do you care? Media must address the issue as the urgent crisis it is. The irresponsible lack of attention given to this matter promotes confusion, resentment and anger, from rioting in Paris because gas prices are going up to Canadian politicians using carbon taxes as a wedge. Please, let’s hammer away at this and brainstorm about solutions together.

Climate change deserves at least as much attention as the new flavour of donut that Tim Hortons gets.
