Letter to the editor: Extraordinary president

To the editor:

We will look back at this current coronavirus as a lesser threat compared with the ones looming in our future. Namely: the apocalyptic effects of climate change; diminishing reserves of oil for which we have no alternate sources that can produce as much energy; and a human population that is now beyond the carrying capacity of our planet.

The times will call for an extraordinary president, and — from the way he has dealt with the current epidemic in New York — Gov. Andrew Cuomo seems to be the kind of person we will need.

Patrick Shannon,
