In response to “Energy: Influx of cash to solve the financial crisis” (Oct. 15):
The four energy-themed questions by the so-called Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE) to more than 3,000 registered voters appear to have very little to do with responsible sustainable energy generation or consumption. The proposed cash influx to solve the current financial crisis is even more ludicrous and shortsighted. CARE’s four questions were obviously worded in such a way to guide responses heavily towards supporting the short term goals of the oil-exploration/drilling, associated “Big-Oil” companies and related interests.
For example, question 2: Do you favor increasing American-produced energy including offshore drilling?
Yes, we all favor increasing American-produced energy, especially from sustainable sources such as solar, wind, bio-fuels, tidal, hydroelectric and a host of others. However a “yes” answer to No. 2 would then imply that the respondent also supported drilling for oil.
When will the authors of such articles and biased surveys face up to the unpleasant reality that America consumes about 25 percent of the world’s oil but only possesses about 3 percent of the world’s total reserves.
