Mother Earth

June 29, 2002

Re "Humans Consume More Than Earth Can Replace, Study Says," June 25: As long as special interests can get away with influencing our political leaders to serve their own agendas rather than standing up for ecologically rational public policy, our children's and grandchildren's future is bleak.

God help us all if we let greed, ambition, ignorance or indifference lay waste to the planet we call Mother Earth.

This "study" by the Oakland-based group Redefining Progress should not have been a news story. There is no news in it. It is merely leftist propaganda.

This group would have us all riding bicycles, wearing hemp clothing and eating soy products. If a conservative or libertarian group releases a study, does The Times make it a news story?
