Let’s all sup­port our Mother Earth

Penticton Herald - - LETTERS -

Dear Ed­i­tor: You’ve prob­a­bly read the re­cent ICCC re­port on cli­mate change in your lo­cal pa­per with the chal­leng­ing news that we have only a cou­ple of years to avoid the sig­nif­i­cant prob­lems that a rise in tem­per­a­ture will bring if we don’t make ma­jor life style changes.

The Guardian, a Bri­tish news­pa­per, has a list of seven things that each of us can do to per­son­ally re­duce our en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print. The most im­por­tant chal­lenge, how­ever, is to talk to your friends and neigh­bours and form or join groups that will chal­lenge our govern­ments, lo­cal, pro­vin­cial and fed­eral to lead the way. Big busi­ness gen­er­ally won’t do it, un­til some­one forces them into it.

Please con­sider what you can do to be­come a more re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zen of Mother Earth.
