I would like to comment on Mr. Moffatt’s letter (July 31 Herald). He beats down police. Well, I would like you to put on a uniform for one night shift and go deal with all these drug-addled individuals who they have to deal with 24/7. Trust me, you wouldn’t last a shift.
As for your talk about fossil fuel, let me guess: you walk everywhere you go and you grow all your own veggies and raise your own animals. You don’t eat bread and obviously you do read the paper. Where does the power come to run your computer, car, TV, lights, etc.
I’m tired of enviromentalists living in this dream bubble and think their toilet paper comes from clouds and your tap water is from heaven. Our world as it is now is run by fossil fuel. Your computer, smartphone, clothes and all of your entertainment is powered by it or made from it.
Next time you go to the grocery store, go in the back and you will see how your apple got in your hand. And as for your praise of Shannon, her and Rachel’s four-year spending spree sure didn’t come from windmills. If you would just face the truth and not what people who make living preaching how they live without fossil fuel, well, how the hell did they get their message to you? The cloud is still run by oil. Try to fathom how much power is burned every day to just cool the Google computers. It’s mind blowing.
I’m done. Wake up and smell the oil that delivered your coffee.
