Seattle Times letters to the editor

Regulating emissions

Cheerleading orders based on faulty science

The Times, once again, cheerleads rather than analyzes the executive orders issued by Gov. Chris Gregoire regulating emissions based on faulty science [“Real momentum on climate change,” editorial, Opinion, May 25]. Just because the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Congress agree doesn’t make it right.

Gregoire knows she has no support in the Legislature for cap-and-trade or other damaging regulations. So, she implements her ideas through executive order — and The Times applauds!

It is scary when a newspaper, which is supposed to be protecting us from our elected officials, instead throws in with them to deprive us of our rights and property.

— Janet Suppes, Bellevue
