Look at immigration

To the Editor: 

So, the Berkeley height initiative has enviros straddling the fence. (Daily Planet, Sept. 20, “Ballot divides environmental community”) 

As long as the Sierra Club and the Greens run from dealing with the underlying cause of sprawl – immigration-induced population growth – they will have to suffer the Hobbesian choice posed by Measure P. 

If that fence post is sharp they deserve the discomfort. Ignorance shouldn't be blissful.
