LETTER from SUZANNE SUMMERS
To the Editor:
If I could buy two square miles of land for $1,000/acre, I would be fortunate indeed, for I would preserve these two square miles as is, in reparation for the three billion birds lost since 1970.
We have lost these birds primarily due to habitat loss; they have nowhere to live thanks to our endless consumption of land. When will we humans learn that what the earth freely gives us is finite?
Many of us live here because of this area’s natural beauty. We would do well to honor that connection, and forego the short-term gain of receiving $1,000/acre for our beautiful home.
