While I am honoured to be singled out by (Parksville city) Councillor (Al) Greir, I experience it as scary he makes such erroneous statements about a person he has neither met nor knows anything about.
I agree with Councillor Greir that we are to leave a sustainably prosperous region for our children and grandchildren.
Frankly, I would like to leave such a world for them.
That is not what we are doing.
Unlike Councillor Greir, I respectfully disagree with him as to how we achieve that.
Unlike Greir, I do know the science — both the social (including economics) as well as the earth sciences.
What part of infinite growth on a finite planet not being sustainable does he not grasp?
If we want a sustainably-prosperous region and world for our children and grandchildren, some serious rethinking and respectful dialogue needs to occur.
My hope is Councillor Greir is up to that challenge.
