Letter: Support renewable energy

Gary Swenson in his letter on Sept. 11 complains that federal and state governments are controlled by those at war with the fossil fuel industries. He states that subsidies shouldn’t be paid to renewable energy programs such as solar and wind.

He wants a balanced approach. How can he say that when the fossil fuel industry has been receiving subsidies for decades and it’s still going on? An industry that huge and well established shouldn’t be subsidized. Renewable energy programs are struggling and need extra financing.

He also disagrees with increasing renewable energy programs over a time period.

To be a sustainable nation, a sustainable world, we must quickly move to renewable energy. Anyone disagreeing is ignoring the facts.
