Destructive politics of big oil threaten Earth

Dear editor,

We have one planet.

We don’t have another. All of us depend on this planet for our survival.

Why is Christy Clark’s government intent on continuing the environmentally destructive politics of big oil?

Does she really feel that British Columbians are so uncaring about the rest of the world that they would support increased extraction and export and burning of fossil fuels? Don’t we as British Columbians deserve and expect leadership in creating a sustainable future for all of us?

If a wealthy country like Canada is not willing to invest in a green economy and alternative energy, who will? What hope is there for our children, the polar bears, and the future?
