Not a radical thought at all

Re: David Suzuki’s What’s so radical about caring for the Earth? Advocate, Jan. 23.

Over the years, as I grow older and less connected to and familiar with recent developments in communication/information technology, I often feel somewhat insecure and inadequately prepared to argue the merits, or detriments and future liabilities, of important issues such as the proposed energy mega-projects that might have such a destructive impact on our environment and therefor the well-being down the road of life for our children and grandchildren.

If I could have foreseen Monday’s column by David Suzuki, I would have waited for the opportunity to make copies, then just hand them out to all those with whom thoughts and opinions were exchanged on the subject.

Of all David Suzuki (and co-writers’) articles, this latest one has been the most important and meaningful, from my perspective.
