A local climate scientist recently wrote of the need to eliminate fossil fuels from the earth (“Embrace policies that address climate change,” March 2). Any sane person can understand that such a world is hundreds of years away. Why spend our wealth searching for Utopia? Natural gas is a usable resource that is here — let us use it. Why ruin our economy and weaken us to the advantage of our adversaries? The country runs on fuel. It produces our electricity, powers the trucks deliver our goods, and supports companies produce real wealth to expand the economy.
Propaganda will not feed or clothe us. Would you rather freeze in the dark?
