We all need to accept reality

Dear Editor,

In her letter of June 10, Adele Zimmermann takes Republicans to task for continuing to promote development of oil and gas to supply our energy needs while applauding Democrats for promoting development of “non-polluting, renewable energy resources.” In the past, many public and private sector individuals have also promoted this very worthy goal. However, hard realities of our energy uses must be examined before we cast our ballots (and dollars) behind such rhetoric. In the U.S., we use nearly 70 percent of our oil for transportation needs. U. S. Energy Information Agency statistics indicate that 140 billion gallons of gasoline were consumed in 2006.
