Politics, power and money take precedence over environment

To the Editor,

Re: Humans inclined to distortion of ‘plausible deniability’, Appeal to Reason, Sept. 24.

The News Bulletin has now added a third column, Appeal to Reason, to join Science Matters and Food Matters.

While the leftie/greenie slant of your newspaper is obvious to regular readers, a third piece which contains meaningless carbon dioxide statistics and tripe about “Gaia” the earth-goddess is over the top.

The ‘appeal’ author is a retired government employee, who presumably has the same agenda as David Suzuki and Marjorie Stewart, contributors of the other two columns – keep stoking the global warming alarmism in order to keep the public subsidy and grant money flowing.

When will the News Bulletin provide some balanced coverage of these issues and not cater only to the ‘watermelons’ – green on the outside and red on the inside.

It has long been apparent that environmentalism is about politics, power and money, while paying lip service to the world we all live in.
