We are going on day after day full well knowing what is happening but not knowing what we can do about it. Sometime or other we must change our ways. Technology has brought us into the space age but it is fragile and can break down easily. We must be prepared for anything that can happen in the future. We have had three catastrophes in the last year, one being Rena which has spewed out oil when the ship caught on a reef. I hope some lessons learned will come out of that, the earthquake and Pike River. Well, Isaac, good for you, the fate of our environment and life may depend on you and your contemporaries. Itisuptoyoutogetasgoodan education as you can for you to go on doing what you want to do. E KEATS, Upper Hutt Thanks I am writing to express my appreciation of your interviews with our older married couples. In these times of family insecurity, it is good to read of those who have succeeded in this often demanding relationship and have developed tolerance and companionship. I know that life has its ups and downs, but am delighted to read of these homes and families, so often Christian-based. Thank you and people for sharing some of your happy times and contentment. B M LAMBERT, Upper Hutt Wait for an age Laurie Bennett s letter of September 21 suggesting global warming could be solved by simply opening fridge doors en masse was clearly meant to be taken with a large grain of salt. However, the last ice age was in fact brought on by global warming. Briefly, Antarctica drifted from other southern continents, leading to the formation of a circular current, the westerly drift, which cut off the flow of warm air and water, and resulted in the cooling of the south polar region. A polar ice cap formed and sea temperatures dropped, precipitating an overall cooling of the Earth s climate. When the North and South American land masses became one, this caused warm Atlantic water that had flowed around the equator to follow the North American seaboard and then wind its merry way to Northern Europe. This caused an increase in precipitation, resulting in an increase in water flowing into the Arctic Ocean and as fresh water freezes more readily than salt water, the Arctic sea ice increased, forming an ice cap. Anyone watching the five minutes of television news not devoted to rugby may have noticed an increase in northern hemisphere flooding. Thus we just have to wait a bit for an ice age to kick in, which might just take care of global warming. JUSTIN RIGGIR, Trentham What is Ebdnt? I have received the new updated telephone directories for the Wellington area. Great! At least I have not been omitted this time, but the entry is not as I asked it to be entered. I asked for the street address to be followed by Upper Hutt. Instead I have the street address followed by Ebdnt. Now, how many people in the Wellington area would know where Ebdnt is to be found? I have looked in the front of the book and found under locality abbreviations that Ebdnt is short for Ebdentown, but it still doesn t inform anyone where it is to be found. I am not happy, particularly as other people have been listed as living in Upper Hutt (UHutt). A E COOKE, Upper Hutt On with belts, off with phones Police will be holding a national two- week blitz on cellphone and restraint use. The 1st of November 2011 marks two years from when the hands-free legislation was intro- duced so let s not be complacent, Senior Constable Flora Nielsen said. The road toll continues to remain at a record low for the year to date. The penalties for using a cellphone and not wearing a seatbelt are $80 and $150.
