Texada coal transport
Shipping thermal coal via Texada Island is a really bad idea [“Texada facility part of coal export expansion plans,” December 5]. If we don’t reduce our carbon emissions quickly, future storms will make Hurricane Sandy look like a minor squall.
Climate change is a world-wide crisis and we can’t just say it’s China’s problem. We must do everything we can to discourage expansion of the burning of fossil fuels and to encourage development of low carbon energy sources.
Rather than leaving a devastated planet for our grandchildren, let’s act now for a low carbon future.
