Knox Pages Letter to the Editor logo

Is our President crazy? He says climate change is just a niche issue; then suggests we nuke hurricanes, which would release radioactive rain and winds far and wide; and wants us to cut down the Tsongas Rainforest in Alaska for more drilling at a time the Amazon Rainforest, the lungs of the world, is being destroyed. 

He believes Putin, who actually did undermine the election but says he didn’t, and calls our own intelligence service “fake news.” After saying it’s time for universal background checks, in everyone’s hearing, he back pedals when the corrupt NRA leans on him.

They misuse their members’ donations for their own aggrandizement and continue to put greed ahead of safety. Why would we put them ahead of the lives of the 100 Americans who die in gun-related incidents every day? We need red flag laws to take nukes away from the president and guns from violent people. NOW.

Enough degradation of the environment. Enough gun deaths. We’ll continue to suffer the results of accelerating warming and acidification of our oceans and lakes and use of guns already out there, but we could slow both the climate crisis and the gun plague if we took steps NOW to introduce some sanity into our Congress and White House.

Enough.
