I am writing you to include you in an ever widening conversation about environmental concerns of Southwest Florida residents.
I have been covering (via blog) the plans to oil drill in the Everglades region.
I have friends on 24th Ave SW in Golden Gate Estates, where the exploratory well is getting dropped on a Florida panther refuge and over fragile aquifer systems. Your man, Ed Garrett, has evinced a lack of knowledge of or concern for the likely possible contamination of water, which the Big Cypress Swamp Advisory Committee admits as possible. They cited “permanent adverse impact” on the water, sheet flow, on vegatation and wildlife, with “special emphasis” on rare and endangered species of which the Florida panther is but one.
When I tell someone that the United States of America is in the Bible, they look at me with a blank stare and say that they have never heard of such a thing. In fact, when anyone mentions the Bible, people seem to grind some gear in their heads and immediately think in terms of “Church” and “Religion”. Actually, the Bible says nothing about Church and Religion as such. Abraham Lincoln said, “The Bible is the Book of Life”.
