Take a minute and thank senators

To the editor:

The people of Maine are well represented by our two senators, Collins and King. They have both voted against a move to drill for fossil fuels in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and should be thanked for this vote.

The far north may be the last line of defense in our struggle to keep the world from becoming an unrecognizable, life-hostile planet like Mars.

The animals and the permafrost there are deep troves of an ecosystem that operate the basic functions of the planet. Please take a minute and let them know that you appreciate and back their vote.
