Climate change: much worse than we’re being told

LETTERS FROM READERS by James Morris Hicks

OPEN LETTER • Student climate activists deserve support from their schools: ‘Our schools should be giving them the tools to demand change so that they can do more than simply cling to survival in a world destroyed by those of us too shortsighted to demand change ourselves’

VIEWPOINT • Our global emergency: We can make the monumental changes and investments necessary to address climate change. To do otherwise would be inane and suicidal.

VIEWPOINT • If Biden is the Democratic nominee, we’re in for a Trump trouncing: There’s a reason the former vice president has lost two previous bids for his party’s nomination — he ain’t no messiah. He’s a corporate Democrat who has a record that is very long and checkered, as well as a reputation as a bumbler.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE • We must protect nutrition assistance for families: Trump administration hands down a shameful new rule that could deny more than half a million needy students free school meals — more than 4,500 of them from Vt.

LETTERS FROM READERS • Country must face genocides on which it is built
