Letters: Industry must catch up with public on climate change

Dear Editor,

Sept. 21 was a day of climate change demonstrations. Privately owned and controlled corporate mass media chose to keep it a secret by under or not reporting the event. Your readers have a right to know why.

We therefore issue a challenge to you: publish this letter.

We have a station we get on our TV, RT-America. This station above all stations we get is known for presenting its viewers with both sides of an issue.

This makes it possible for viewers to make up their own minds what they believe, and frees them from the comatose state introduced by years of brainwashing.

A major point not much discussed on climate change is that the world is trapped in a dependency on fossil fuels, a major cause. Climate change will only worsen unless we stop that dependence and replace it with alternate renewable fuel sources, electricity, wind, and other natural resources.

We have a beginning with electrical cars, wind turbines, ocean waves, and others.

Greater quantities of carbon dioxide are produced on the side of industry, such as every plane that flies, immense ocean tankers, and much more.

The general public is doing its part; it is time for business to start. Vancouver truck delivery that uses electric trucks deserve kudos.

Governments need to pay attention to scientists and professionals more, and stop taking orders from big business and high finance.

Judging from the demonstrations seen on RT-US TV, they were huge.

John Beeching, Langley
