Sustainability...


By Yvonne Nyenhuis

Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I am abundantly grateful to Dr. Van Gorp for his comprehensive article on “Sustainability”. “Infinite growth on a finite planet, is by definition, not sustainable.” As it is we have a government “of the few, by the few, for the few”. We need to restore government “to the people.” “The alternative to capitalism is not socialism, it is democracy.” Dr. Van Gorp clarifies the challenges we face politically and in science, goals we should aspire to and a strategy for proceeding toward these goals. When President Obama campaigned he talked about “hope, change and he used the word “transformation”. Republicans feel threatened by that word, they like things as they are. Their narrative includes the growing deficit (which was largely caused by the preceding administration) and “big government” (which generally means disposing of all the programs that help people while maintaining tax breaks for the wealthy). They take pride in their success in obstructing the Presidents efforts to create jobs,improve education, protect the environment and to expand accessibility to healthcare.
