Letter to the Editor
Dear Green Party,
†Hello, I am a Green Party member. I am moved by the name Rachael Carson. I am an admirer of many environmentalists and environmental organizations such as Greenpeace. I have followed local and global environmental issues since my youngest days. The effort to (or at least pretend to try to) balance mankind’s most ambitious and self-satisfying goals with deference to our grossly undervalued life support system, namely our planet and cumulative eco-system, is crucial.
So, I feel like I speak from a very “Green” perspective for lack of another way to put it. This is why I feel on good grounds to offer a little criticism and concern on my part for the U.S. Green Party.
I have noticed of late that our movement has been hijacked by the one-issue conspiracy theorist wing. Whether this movement is “on the money” or “out where the buses don’t run,” the 9-11 conspiracy is not a Green issue. I am sad and frustrated as I see our predicament worsen globally. As we brace for refugees from climate disasters, as we watch food production efforts become frustrated by erratic weather and temperature fluctuations, the Green Party needs to get back to environmentalist issues.†
Please, ditch the conspiracy theory stuff and get back to environmental issues. Get back to science, learning and fostering a shared awe in our natural world. You can assign a few members of one of your offices to work on 9-11 truth. Why not encourage Amnesty International, a very reputable organization, to look into the 9-11 conspiracy, or hire an attorney to take Bush to court ó and let us get back to Green work.†
I did not recognize myself in the Green Party this election year. I found it easy to vote for green and intelligent local initiatives but had a difficult time finding a Green Party candidate that gave me much confidence. The entire U.S. Green Party needs reform. It is all off-message.
We are an independent party in a two-party state. We need the best political-historian scientists we can find to help us reposition our party and other parties in the American system to work on new ways to work together and challenge the bigger two parties.†
A whole new ingenuous approach to present the Green Party as the party of the future is needed. Ask any of the best and brightest minds on today’s world stage and they all will say that environmental and human impact issues will be of greater and greater importance as this century wears on.
Please. Be the Green Party that could be. The one that is relevant and decades ahead.†
