Protect the planet

Open letter to Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski:

Open letter to Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski:

I know you know me, and I’m a little insignificant figure to you. But in my humble opinion I’m not insignificant to my grandchildren, and not just too my grandchildren but all grandchildren and their grandchildren on this planet and all the future generations to come, for a long time.

I could not live with myself and look in the mirror if I were not doing whatever I could to be a part of the solution to reverse runaway climate change.

So I urge you to please watch the speech given by U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry on climate change and how we may can mitigate it, at the Climate Change Conference in Lima, Peru.

This video gave me the strength to write this letter.

Please stop the construction of Yukon Energy’s ill-fated liquefied natural gas facility at Robert Service Way – the absolutely worst place for LNG tanks.

Please stop Northern Cross Yukon and their foreign shareholders to attempt to destroy an important part of our beautiful Yukon and contribute to the destruction of a livable environment of this earth, the mother of all life on it.

If you don’t stop these projects you are against humanity, you are against the majority of Yukoners and the majority of people on this earth.

If you are not with us, you are against us, and I’m sure you know the meaning of this phrase is.

If you can not do this because of your strange beliefs that the Yukon needs these destructive projects, that this earth needs these destructive projects, to have a prosperous economy, then you have one other option: resign, because you and your caucus and the previous premier and caucus have done enough damage too the Yukon economy and Yukon’s finances.

Resign and let people with a conscience for the wellbeing of future generations lead the Yukon.
