To the Editor,

Re: Raw log exportation epitomizes B.C. irony, Letters, May 22.

I don’t disagree at all with the writer’s views but do wish to point out one thing. Using Google Earth as a reference would give one a very mistaken view of the devastation to our forests.

Google Earth uses a montage of image sources to tile the Earth’s surface and many of them are far from real time.

My own home appears as under construction. It was built in 1980.
