Adele Franks & Lilly Lombard: Markey would be better environmental steward

To the editor:

Global warming is the greatest crisis facing humanity. If you think climate change is a distant threat, speak to local farmers who have lost their topsoil to extreme floods, or those who cannot produce our food because of severe drought. We need a U.S. senator who understands the gravity of climate change, takes legislative action to curtail it and does not pander to the oil lobby.

Ed Markey opposes the Keystone XL Pipeline, a project that would increase mining of Canadian tar sands and produce the most carbon-polluting fossil fuel in the world.

Gabriel Gomez supports approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline and continued subsidies for big oil.

Markey has our vote on Tuesday.

Adele Franks,
Florence Lilly Lombard
