Letter: Misguided on climate change
Monitor editors made several misguided observations in the editorial “Everybody has a church in the woods” (Monitor, July 1).
Climate change is no longer a “philosophical” debate; it is a scientific one. They argue that it is “simply not true” that the same things are at stake for everybody in this debate.
We are all impacted by extreme weather events, whether they occur in California, Florida or Manhattan Island.
If we wait until everyone learns to “reconnect in their own way with the landscape,” Manhattan subways will be under water, coastal wetlands and barrier islands will have disappeared, dead zones where fish cannot survive will proliferate . . . and forget swimming in Webster Lake (Monitor, July 1).
