Vail Daily letter: Not a religion
The letter by Mr. Krohlow (Thursday’s Letters to the Editor) trying to designate environmentalism as a religion and the Environmental Protection Agency as a religious organization is just plain ignorant. Granted that a small number of people who call themselves environmentalists go overboard, that does not make the rest of us fanatics. I have a graduate degree in environmental science. My concern for the environment (as is much of the EPA’s) is science-based and has nothing to do with religion. We are concerned about the dwindling diversity of wildlife and eco-systems. Whether you like it or not, we are part of those systems, and when they go, we go. Use your common sense, and if you don’t like what the EPA is doing, argue on the basis of facts.
