Minneapolis LTE: Do the right thing and move to clean energy
The following letter to the editor from CCL's Kay Nelson was published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on April 17, 2011
Do the right thing and move to clean energy
The story on natural gas was no surprise to those of us who have been active in the global warming debate ("Natural gas loses some green sheen," April 12). The only real solution is to stop burning fossil fuels -- all of them.
The way to speed the transition to clean energy is to put a price on carbon. Returning the revenue from a carbon fee to all households will enable us to make this transition without harming the economy.
Do we have the guts to do this?
KAY NELSON, RICHFIELD
