Letter to the editor: Human comfort and nature can coexist

Editor:

I was shocked but not surprised by the lack of acumen from Corrine Harris’ column, “Protection law sacrifices human safety.” The column presented no overall picture of management of natural resources; the audience is to assume any policy that is good for natural ecosystems is bad for humans and our desire for affluence and comfort.

The columnist should look at the websites of the Rainforest Alliance and Imaflora to get an understanding of sustainable agriculture and sustainable development across the tropics, specifically in Brazil. For understanding sustainable agriculture and development domestically, The Nature Conservancy is a good organization to study.
