Down year for Seafair
Make it green
The spectacle of speedboats producing carbon emissions is not entertainment, but a reminder of the need for greater understanding of global warming. [“Is Seafair sinking? Down year stirs debate,” page one, Aug. 9.]
Seafair could hold races and demonstrations for canoes, kites, rowboats and vehicles powered by wind, solar, hydrogen and nonfood biofuels.
This would feature many skills and cultural traditions of our citizens, the genius of technological innovators and the purity of our water.
