To the Editor,

Re: Sacrificing farmland for climate change, BC Views, May 21.

While I believe it was an oversight by Mr. Fletcher to call the IPCC, the “United Nations International Panel on Climate Change” rather than by the correct,  “Intergovernmental” it does carry a significant implication that the error slipped past all the proofreaders as well.

Obviously, few see the IPCC for what it is, a bureaucratic body created to lead government policy. More to the point, few people see any danger in having this UN bureaucracy guiding our own governments.

To carry the implication to its conclusion, Mr. Fletcher and all the editors that ran this piece with the misleading wording see the IPCC as a credible organization, the polar opposite to my view, hence I follow the IPCC  actions rather closely.

I see them as a real danger. Our inflated price for energy is due to their manipulations.

A letter writer’s influence is rather meager, hence I wish professional journalists or editors  would regain the desire to do some investigative journalism. In years past the IPCC’s hypocritical arrogance alone would have spelled the end for this elitist, manipulative organization.

The annual climate love-ins, paid for with your money should cause outrage but instead few voices in media report and criticize.

Watch Paris this fall and keep in mind your money pays for this fiasco. Compare your life to the people who insist you must use less energy to save the Earth.

Regrettably, few have even heard of investigative reporter Donna Laframboise’s book, The Delinquent Teenager. Too bad. Our apathy remains costly.
