Re: greenyes-d Digest V01 #32
Ashcroft, Bush, Cheney and their ilk are repugnant, and they give
every indication of running roughshod over existing environmental
policy. Even the small gains that have been made in the past are
not secure. However, I must agree that discussing overpopulation
and abortion seems off topic for this forum. I disagree that the
root problem is overpopulation. I think more to blame are
inappropriate technologies that are resource intensive and
wasteful, politicians who are owned by corporations, corporations
that are nearsighted and can't see the harm they cause to the
environment and to people, an unrealistic lifestyle in developed
nations, etc. These are the issues that bind us together and keep
us involved in this forum. If we are to attack politicains, let's
at least do it in the context of the forum, in terms that unite
and galvanize our disparate views.
