My response to Syed Kamall’s initial reply | Tue, 15 December, 2009

Dear Syed,

Thank you for your response. I do correspond regularly with my MP Sarah Teather who continues to do an outstanding job of addressing my concerns. She has received a similar letter from me already.

My comments below are aimed at all government representatives worldwide including but not limited to the British Government. I believe that anybody who is in a position to effect change in government policy whether domestic or international ought to be engaging seriously with these issues as they pertain to policy and society ubiquitously and immediately.

As Jimmy Carter said in the late 70s: “The energy crisis is real. It is worldwide. It is a clear and present danger to our nation. These are facts and we must face them.” Following this statement we had three decades of reckless, wasteful abuse of hydrocarbon energy on an unprecedented scale at the expense of the environment, the labour force and the global economic system. This we can no longer afford.

I am not looking for a response from you. All I can do is appeal to your common sense and humanitarian instinct and hope that you will investigate these matters yourself and raise your voice whenever relevant.

Kind Regards,
Seth Mowshowitz
