Analogy offends

Since my wife and I moved to the Lismore area we have had an wonderful time enjoying the atmosphere, exploring the region and meeting new friends. I enjoy regularly reading the letters section of the The Echo,

however, Mungo MacCallums article on climate change (Echo, February 8), although interesting, offers absolutely no options on alternate thinking, apart from criticism. His statements about the Roman Catholic Malcolm Turnbull, have absolutely no bearing on the topic of climate change.

As to the sickening remark inferring that when we can do nothing to change a situation, whether it be the rape of our land, or the rape of a woman, what type of mind would write such an inflammatory line as just lie back and enjoy it? Could I please have an explanation as to the difference between those comments, and those recently made by another self-opinionated individual likening our women to raw meat.
