Jumbo, pictured above, was the launch point for one letter writer’s commentary on climate change.

Dear Editor:

Rowena Eloise writes in June 23rd, 2017 regarding Jumbo and climate change. She states that CO2 levels have never been higher, when in fact CO2 levels in the Permian Era were close to 6,000 ppm, about 15 times today’s levels, stimulating plant growth making Canada’s coal reserves. She also advocates for criminal prosecution for ecosystem destruction. I wonder if that would include the farmers who destroyed ecosystems to build farms to grow food for her, or the Invermere town fathers who destroyed ecosystems for her roads and houses and stores and golf courses. Would she be OK with being charged as an accessory after the fact?
