Letter: Quality of life in ND rapidly deteriorating

What is rapidly happening to our North Dakota environment?

And why should we follow Andy Peterson’s directive about the environment as printed in his Nov. 19 opinion piece in The Forum?

Why not a well-written constitutional amendment to fund the environment, to argue with Peterson and the Greater North Dakota Chamber of Commerce?

Huge recent losses of native prairie were caused by plowing it up for ethanol (corn production).

So when have you last heard a western meadowlark sing east of the Missouri and where have the wild roses, our state flower, gone?

Many of us returned to North Dakota for a special quality life, to include hunting, fishing and bird-watching.

What is Peterson’s “better way” to support conservation? He offers us none; so write, citizens, to protest what is going on.
