Letters may be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation and legal concerns.

 

Noisy, well-funded minorities block the radical chance we need

To the editor,
Good letter by Brenda Baer about the prison/state school property on Parade Road in Laconia on May 15. "Bad investment", she said.
That land could have become a low-maintenance food producer if the principles of permaculture had been used years ago. Now it's been built on, paved, painted, sprayed, mowed and blown, and polluted.
And I agree with George Maloof's letter on June 3 that Monsanto is evil incarnate — more bad news for the environment. (And Kelly Ayotte thinks that the IRS is "Big Brother"!)
The March/April issue of Pacific Standard Magazine has an article about "astonishing sources of oil and gas all over the world", but scientists say that two-thirds of it should stay underground to prevent further global warming. Sea level is rising.
We need radical change, but noisy, moneyed minorities block progress.
