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.
