Is this the environmental future we want?

Editor:

I’m not someone who spends a lot of time thinking about where my electricity comes from. But watching the events in Japan has really got me thinking: what kind of environmental future are we building for our children?

I know we don’t have to face the nuclear energy question here in B.C. because we’ve got so many natural green energy options. But what about the rest of the world? They don’t seem to be quite so lucky. That worries me.

Energy use is the single most important environmental factor that could make or break our children’s future. That’s where we really need to focus our environmental energies. There is only one environment, and if we can’t solve our energy problems then I fear for the future we may be handing to our children.
