Letters: Some jobs just aren't worth it

Re “Oil and gas industry generates thousands of jobs in California, report finds,” April 22

This article came straight from the industry's PR team.

What good is a job if employees die from toxins or accidents? What good is tax revenue if residents are too ill to go to school or work?

Jobs? Let's hire more teachers to teach science. Let's fund more public transportation. Let's invest in companies harnessing renewable forms of energy.

If oil company shareholders and CEOs wised up and switched their business model from oil to sun, wind and water, our planet could thrive.

How much more polluted water, soil and air, illness and death, or how many earthquakes will it take until people do what's in their best interest?
