Young hero would have been better choice

Kudos to the DCI for highlighting the article on the front page of the Nov. 28, 2018, issue of a ne'er-do-well criminal, Dan-David Lamon, when deserved 9-year-old Tia Homedew from Crawford performed a totally selfless and heartfelt act of making quilts for traumatized children.

Make 2019 the year for climate action

It's time to stop buying the nonsense that the next fossil fuel boom will save our economy. Tar sands in Utah and fracking more of our public lands so private companies can ship our energy overseas, are not viable ways forward nor are they sound strategies for our future.

EPA should maintain existing methane rules

Once again, the Trump administration is moving to put the profits of polluters before public health and the well-being of future generations. Recently the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency -- which under this administration is anything but -- held its one and only hearing on a Trump administration proposal to gut sensible, effective and widely-supported protections from methane pollution caused by oil and gas development.

Thanks, enviros, for devastation

Just when we thought wildfires couldn't get worse, along comes the latest California fires, killing 60+ people, burning 100,000+ acres, destroying thousands of homes, ruining health and economies, roasting wildlife, sterilizing soil, and blackening lands. Rain runoff will choke fish and streams with ash.

It's time to face facts

Recent reports of surge in coal production in the Appalachian coal fields. Amazing how fast a horse can run when you stop jerking on the reins.

Marijuana is in keeping with our ag heritage

I have two, no three reactions, to the article "Timeline details marijuana votes and regulations" by Matt Soper (DCI, March 1). First the majority of the article is correct as it relates to the timeline of events and what occurred.

A big victory for the West

The Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule that was issued by the Obama Administration was one of the most onerous federal water and land grabs in history -- it undermined state water law and priority-based systems, inserted federal control over western water rights, and put decisions about our water in the hands of Washington bureaucrats.

Tipton urged to focus efforts on renewable energy

I am writing to ask you to withdraw your co-sponsorship and support for HR 167, Stopping EPA Overreach Act of 2017, and instead concentrate your efforts on stopping global warming by bringing renewable, non-polluting sources of energy online as quickly as possible.

Energy policy and America First

Since the OPEC oil embargo in the 1970s, America's energy policy has appropriately (though ineffectively) been focused on energy independence for decades. Now, with the fracking boom providing abundant natural gas (NG) resources plus some oil on top of it, the United States finally has the opportunity to, if not completely achieve, come close to achieving energy independence.

The deliberate corruption of climate science

What a travesty that the public at large has been deceived, yes deceived beyond comprehension by masterful propaganda. Unfortunately, this has been essentially a worldwide scheme backed by huge monetary gifts and orchestrated by a very successful but small number of politicians and scientists.

This is no time for complacency

I hope the public will wake up to see that the misguided Republican party agenda is to cut taxes for the wealthy and eliminate much-needed services for the public and the planet. Choosing this agenda equates to the public shooting themselves in the foot.
