Environmental action

In the article "New Legal Tools Needed to Preserve Earth," Jan. 2, the author states that "economists frighten us ... warning us of the cost of action, but rarely pausing to calculate the cost of inaction."

I am an American who has always been deeply opposed to having my tax dollars spent on nuclear arms that could destroy the ecosystem of our planet. I choose this greater evil over risking imprisonment for refusing to pay the taxes, but I think it's time we all pause to calculate the cost of our inaction to our mutual world environment.
