Cli­mate change

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS | OPINION -

IT SEEMS P.C. Wil­son from Mi­ami (TDN Sep 26) is not only overly con­cerned with Tweed mat­ters but has also been im­mu­nised against re­al­ity.

Lo­cal government has no ju­ris­dic­tion in the build­ing of hos­pi­tals or the op­er­a­tion of air­ports. Most alarm­ing though it seems record droughts, tem­per­a­tures, wild­fires, su­per storms, melt­ing ice­caps and ocean acid­i­fi­ca­tion to men­tion a few con­se­quences of burn­ing fos­sil fu­els, do not reg­is­ter with this per­son.

While in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses are tak­ing ac­tion to limit cli­mate change we have a do-noth­ing government be­holden to coal lob­by­ists. The sooner they are gone the bet­ter.
