Dear Dr. Fox: In case you need it, this is just to commend your speaking out about what’s wrong with this world, the environment, animal health and public health.
Keep up the fight. — C.H., Naples, Florida
Dear Dr. Fox: I never paid attention to your column until I happened to notice your connecting animal advice to environmental issues. I don’t “own” any pets, but now, I look for interesting tidbits in your articles that confirm my feelings about how the destruction of the natural world impacts all of our lives. It’s not “politics” — it’s reality. — A.T., Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
Dear C.H. and A.T.: I appreciate your words of support. Anyone with even a grain of empathy certainly needs such support, given these times of an economically and socially disruptive pandemic, political pandemonium, corruption, disinformation and the in-our-faces climate and extinction crises.
The more one knows, the more one suffers — especially when confronted by the denial and lies of others. Lies abound, whether about the suffering of factory-farmed animals, the starvation of marine animals from our overfishing and ocean pollution, or the desecration and decimation of wildlands and Indigenous peoples around the world.
