New Zine Available: An Open Letter to Fellow Environmentalists

1 Aug

Now available for your reading and distributing pleasure, a new DGR zine-formatted version of An Open Letter to Fellow Environmentalists is ready for download. “An Open Letter to Fellow Environmentalists” is an essay about the fallacy of clean energy as a means of environmental preservation, written by a member of DGR Colorado early this year.

“I know what it’s like. I know exactly how it feels to look around and see a world not just dying but being suffocated, being tortured and maimed, sacrificed on the twin altars of profit and production. As a young person today, I know what it’s like to fear the future, to fear for my future. I—like many of you—have read all the studies and reports I need to see to know what’s coming, what disaster is now screaming, all but unchallenged, down the track upon us.”

Let us know what you think of the zine and the essay, and feel free to spread it around within your own circles.

    This ends a little abruptly. The end of page 4 is cut off mid-sentence. Is it possible that the entire PDF didn’t make it online?

      It looks fine to me; I believe it’s supposed to be that way, because it is formatted for printing as a booklet. To read it after page four, you have to scroll up to page 5. The page numbers are on the bottom of the pages. Does that help?

    I agree with what you have said, but it still leaves me hanging. Is this it for humanity? How would we then progress if we had to accept and live with less convenience? It is a convincing argument and indeed, a manifesto, that you have here, but I don’t think I can accept that humanity must choose to put down its technology and give up any form of industrialism just so we can survive along with the earth and be “sustainable”.
