Open letter to Environment Minister Elaine Taylor:

I do not support the attendance of 12 Yukon delegates at the conference in Copenhagen, which is based only on the belief of anthropogenic global warming that has been popularized with the masses via faulty science and (barely) hidden agendas.

There are many more factors affecting climate change than just CO2 (H2O is the most common greenhouse gas) and, really, how do we stop climate change?

Why should we stop climate change, if we could?

Nobody understands climate change, period.

Studying climate change is useful; spreading fear and lies is unacceptable.

I am a college student and I am going to use my ability to research and think to bring focus back onto the biggest threat to the survival of all species on the Earth, including humans: human pollution.

Along with stopping pollution (which would mean making less consumer garbage), carbon dioxide emissions would also be drastically reduced.

From one mom to another, I urge you to research the many chemicals out there that are intentionally developed and used in the production of all of our modern products, from food, medications, cosmetics, cleaning products, household items, baby products of all kinds É the list is endless.

I know that you have heard of Bisphenol A, but there’s at least another 100,000 chemicals, with more developed every day, that end up in our environment and in our bodies.

Our babies are poisoned before they are even born!

This I cannot, and will not accept!

Help bring focus back on pollution!
