Jay Bookman’s December 4 column “U-turn is GOP pair’s best pal” decries presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich having to recant global warming is caused by burning fossil fuels to satisfy Republican primary voters.
Present government policies are to replace our abundant, economical fossil fuels with renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, ethanol from corn, battery-powered cars, etc. All of these energy sources are uneconomical, impractical, and unreliable as shown by recent bankruptcies of companies such as Evergreen Solar, Spectra Watt, Solyndra, Southwest Georgia Ethanol, etc.
Present energy policies are adding to the national debt, destroying creation of high-paying jobs, and causing energy inflation. Most Republican voters will not vote for a Republican candidate that allows these policies to continue.
