File Under: Totally Missed the Point


An SF Chronicle reader's letter regarding the article posted here the other day.

Up in smoke

Editor -- I was alarmed to read about how those Burning Man people want to expand their "collectives" around the world ("Spreading the flames," May 29). Global supplies of wood and other fuels are at risk as our high- consumption lifestyles are exported to, or emulated by, developing nations. If indeed these folks are "spreading the flames" of their freakish and wasteful cult, should we not expect reports of Man-Burning festivities in Asia, Africa or South America, while villagers' meals go uncooked, air pollution worsens, and local economies stagnate?

Meanwhile, global warming looms like a fiery Grim Reaper over us all.
