Dave Schellberg (“Drilling, mining boom does not spell environmental doom,” Wednesday) is right that we are not ready to move completely away from fossil fuels. He’s wrong to suggest that we should not move as far as we can right now. The more energy we generate from sustainable sources, the more we support that economy and push innovation in a positive direction.
Worse that suggesting that inaction should be the choice we make in the face of imperfection, Schellberg moves from supporting fossil fuels to touting coal. Coal may provide “cheap” fuel, but coal is a menace from beginning to end.
