Letters to the Editor

Climate talk is cheap

EDITOR: Your recent editorial and several follow up letters on the issue of climate change, I think our problem/challenge is a lot closer to home. In this blue town in a blue county in a very blue state I see lots of new and late model SUV's and big crew cab pickups. I also see huge numbers of plastic bags and many cases of single serving water bottles going out of our grocery stores. So it would appear that many of our fellow citizens are not too concerned about this issue and aren't willing to take even the minimal steps to reduce theirĀ  consumption. This isn't a government problem; to paraphrase Pogo, "the enemy is us.
