Letter: Humans continue on wrong path



The Aug. 26 story reported “Higher CO2, acidifying oceans found to harm all marine life.” Recently the Port of Vancouver’s board of commissioners voted to approve the oil export terminal they have been building up for the last two years so that humans (us) can burn even more fossil fuel to add more CO2 to the global atmosphere and sea. And foreign corporations want to build coal export terminals in this area to sell coal to India and China so they can add millions of more tons of CO2 to the global atmosphere and sea.

This is the beginning of the end of sanity and reason in our world. We will make extinct many hundreds if not thousands of species around the world. Guess which species will also be extinct eventually? Humans.

Think I’m crazy? We are crazy to keep burning fossil fuels.
