Environmental double-speak

This letter is in reply to Dorthea Farris’ letter, which has appeared in all three local papers recently (“Nurturing with nature,” Jan. 4, The Aspen Times).

She talks a lot about treasured places being saved “because of the attention by those who had experienced the peace, excitement, beauty and astonishing value of the place.” She wants more of these special places that are saved from development and destruction, but is all for the development of the trail from Carbondale to Crested Butte and the destruction of this special place. Hypocritical? Sounds like it to me.
