We need leaders to step up
Dear Editor:If the true costs of fossil fuels and/or nuclear power are factored in (i.e., countless lives lost in wars, untold property destruction, and environmental damage), they really aren’t cheap or clean resources after all.I firmly believe that clean (and mostly natural) resources such as biofuels, hydrogen, solar wind, geothermal, hydroelectric and electromagnetics are the best way for us to go. We need to get serious about stopping our buying into a dead-end future. Are there any leaders out there brave enough to step up to the plate and lead us into a brighter one? What’s needed are people able to see the big picture, who can harness the kind of can-do spirit that put men on the moon within a decade, and who won’t sell out to big business. Come on down!Bob KeenanCarbondale
