A note to our readers:

The Weekly Green occasionally shares opinion pieces by non-environmental voices when they appear in major news outlets, as a way of making sure our readers have an opportunity to respond to them (e.g.: through letters to the editor of the media outlet). We started doing that because readers asked us to do so. The editors don’t necessarily agree with opinions expressed in any given opinion, editorial or column, nor do we necessarily agree with quotes made in news articles; inclusion in the Weekly Green is not intended to imply endorsement. Thanks, as always, for your readership!
