Editor, The News:
The article, [School officials join fact-free climate strike, The News, Sept. 25] is deeply disturbing.
I am really surprised that you have allowed such an article to be published.
I respect all ideas, including the ones that say we should use our oil and even building a pipeline, although I do not agree with them, but I can see their point.
The road to a post-fossil fuels civilization is foggy.
Columnist Tom Fletcher is really making a mockery of our environmental situation.
This is a serious matter, not to be converted into a circus.
If he is trying to say that everything is OK, he is misleading even more than Greta Thunberg’s call for panic.
At least, she is a young person fighting for her survival.
We should not panic, but we should not bury our heads in the sand pretending that nothing is happening.
I will do a favour for Mr. Fletcher.
I will keep his article and give it to my grandchildren for safe keeping, so one day – in 60 years time – they can show it to Mr. Fletcher’s grandchildren, and they will be the judges …
