Short-sea shipping: Don’t forget about other environmental impacts

This reader is relieved to find out that air pollution and therefore climate change doesn’t exist beyond 50 nautical miles [”New EPA emission standards would hurt short-sea shipping”, Opinion, March 3].

All this talk of biological interdependence that connects us and all other life in an ecological web must be overzealous science. The old way, out-of-sight is out-of-mind, must still be good enough for business.

No wonder we’re frantically searching for other habitable planets.

Art James, Port Townsend
