Counterpoint: What's wrong with this picture?

-A A +A
By The Staff

Recently, I read Marita Noon’s guest column, “What’s wrong with this picture?” (Monitor, May 14).  I had read several of her previous guest columns, most recently “Are we becoming energy socialists?” (Feb. 25) and “Developing our raw potential” (Feb. 5).

The articles advocate further exploitation and use of oil, gas, coal and uranium, along with development of energy bridges (e.g. tar sands) and renewables.

These columns wouldn’t make the Best Articles list of many of the organizations and religious institutions in our community. They certainly don’t square with the County’s Comprehensive Plan goal to Protect the Environment or with its efforts to promote environmental sustainability.

Marita Noon is the executive director of the Albuquerque-based Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE), an ironic acronym, I would say. Under the pen name of Marita Littauer, she has written 19 books on communications and Christian living.

Last fall, at the end of her articles, Noon described CARE as “a non-profit organization advocating for citizen rights to use energy as you see fit and as you can afford.”
