Letter to the editor


Dear Editor,

Thank you for the article, “Close to the Edge”. I have been listening to the hearings by way of North Country Public Radio, and it is scary to hear the rebuke by Republicans. Everything about this President is scary for me. He has no morals, no ethics. As you state, “Any one thing Trump does in a single day would have had any other President out of office and possibly jailed”.

Again, “he might even decide that he never has to leave office”; totally frightening thought. Like a horror movie.

As I listened to lawyers yesterday in the Congressional hearings, the Republican response was as you say: “the Republican Party has sold its soul for power, refusing to confront Trump even though he has trashed every one of their basic political principles. The evangelical so-called wing of the Christian Right has likewise turned its back on the Gospel for the sake of what they see as political reform”. I totally agree this is all so despicable!

And again, I repeat myself, but I am a fan of Colon Creasey’s way of thinking. He states, “we feed 760 million tonnes of farm animals every year”. And “meat-eater’s diet requires 17 times more land, 14 times more water, and 10 times more energy than a vegetarian’s.
At least the Chinese have something right in “guidelines aimed at getting the nation’s 1.3 billion people to reduce their meat consumption by 50% by 2030″. I also heard on the news that they plan to have electric cars, hopefully soon in the future.

I absolutely agree with Colin’s last sentence: Ëating less meat is better for your health, as well as the climate”.
