Seattle Times letters to the editor

Climate change: We have very important questions to ask ourselves

Thanks so much to The Seattle Times for its series this week on climate change [“Losing ground: The struggle to reduce CO2,” News, May 3]. This subject years ago moved from a hypothesis to a valid scientific theory, driven by facts and data.

We, the human race, now find ourselves faced with some very important questions: Do we care more about future generations than we do ourselves? Are we caretakers of this planet, or users and abusers? Can we set aside our petty political differences (both nationally and internationally) and work out meaningful ways to immediately address the causes of climate change?

Unless most of these questions get answered in the affirmative, future generations will curse us as the ones who could have done something about climate change, and chose not to.

Mike Shaw, Edmonds
