Seattle Times letters to the editor

How your U.S. lawmaker voted

Republicans ignore environmental problems

The report in Sunday’s paper [“How Your U.S. Lawmaker Voted,” NW Sunday, June 30] shows what little regard most Republican politicians have for our environment, ignoring the lessons from the BP Amoco PLC oil spill and voting for almost anything that profits the oil and gas industries.

They will be reaping profits while the population suffers the results of living in a more polluted world.

Will the people wake up and vote them out of office before we have reached a point of no return on pollution?

Anne Corley, Mercer Island
