Letters: Gas is not renewable

Weekly letters to the editor from within the Sooke community.

Natural gas. They say we have a 160 year supply that is if we sell it all.

Well, for our future generations at 160 years, your stove, furnace, hot water tank will just stop. They say we don’t have enough hydro now, so in 160 years with the double amount needed, where will we be going back to? Firewood? The same with oil and coal. Why are we selling off our natural resources? This is not a renewable resource when they are gone, they are gone.

People say, well it won’t bother me, we want to be here. Well, what about your future generations? They will say, how stupid we were. It’s all about as smart as a sack of hammers. If we stop now maybe it will last 300 years.

Don’t let the government sell us down the drain. This will only create more pollution. The scientists were saying stop. This is why we have this bad weather pattern around the world and the dying of ocean products.
