Rich Cairn: Time to use solar, wind energies
To the editor:
Invest in solar and wind. Where was the word Fukushima in your June 10 AP article, “Nuclear plant closures show industry’s struggles”? Nuclear power cannot be made safe. Yet the article minimized safety issues as mere nuisances to business. Never mind the endlessly lethal waste.
One good point the article did make: cheap natural gas fuels catastrophic global warming. If humanity is to survive, we must radically cut energy consumption and invest monumentally in solar and wind.
