Good questions in the Honolulu Advertiser

Good questions posed to the editor of the Honolulu Advertiser:

Ecological survival is up to all of us

Recently a news reporter stated that scientists had 50 years to turn around the sustainability of the planet's ecosystem for survival of the human species.

The statement started me thinking.

Why the scientists?

Why not the politicians?

Why not us?

I don't want my children's children to sit back, having had their fate decided for them.

They will need a voice if they wish to survive.

So, it is time for me to find mine.

When did the wants of today become more important than the needs of today, than the needs of my children and their children and their children's children?

A mother of two.

Exactly. It's up to people... individuals... to make things happen. Not wait til it comes to you. Not wait for other people to decide for you or to act for you.
