A Matter Of Opinion

Weekend letter: Washington and the environment

Republican politicians are certainly all worked up over the environment. (…) All the Republicans that you quote seem to find many horrible things that will happen if we try to reduce CO2 emissions. Our summers are getting hotter and drier, our winters are wetter but the snowpack is melting sooner. The result: more forest fires, less irrigation water and poorer crops. These things are good?

If our local legislators give a flat “no,” the West-Siders will ignore them. If they would work together we could get legislation that would work for all. — Bryan Bremner, Republic, Wash.

How much compromise is acceptable (on either side) when it comes to environmental issues in Washington?
