To the Editor:
The leap in the level of carbon dioxide in the air, with its implications of an ever increasing rise of global temperatures, is indeed a major concern. Not to be forgotten though are the other parts of the equation from the burning of fossil fuels, water and energy released into the interaction of the oceans and the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is the trigger, but water and highly energized weather patterns are having the most immediate impact upon us here in what Buckminster Fuller termed “Spaceship Earth”. Somewhere along the line, our stewardship of life on the planet seems to have taken a decidedly wrong turn.
