Don’t abuse ‘tree huggers’


Dear Editor – The phrase “tree hugger”, as used in the letter “Too many people on the planet?” in The Village magazine last month, is a term of abuse for environmentalists, made even more unacceptable by linking it to Greta Thunberg.
It is a gross distortion of the facts that environmentalists (“tree huggers”) never mention “population”– please see www.populationmatters.org/quotes
