I write to thank The Daily News for publishing many articles this year about our environment, and to Jordan Macha of the Bayou City Waterkeeper organization.

I was unaware of the 2014 Texas A&M University study about the woefully inadequate job our governmental entities, e.g. the Corps of Engineers, to mitigate the loss of natural resources or protect it in the first place. Cutbacks to agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, and those concerning the Clean Water Act by the Trump administration are tough for me to understand.

Financial profits for industries don't have to include more environmental degradation if they wish to continue to make a profit. No hyperbole is needed to see where we are today and where we will be in a decade if we continue to ignore environmental risk; just read the article about the Greenland glaciers in the news today.
