Embrace renewable energy

THE EDITOR, Madam:

Regardless of — or perhaps because of — collective humankind’s over-reliance on fossil fuels, it is no longer prudent to have all or even most infrastructure reliant on such traditional sources of energy.

However, if the universal availability of renewable energy alternatives, such as solar energy harvesting, would come at the expense of the traditional ‘energy’ production companies, it will eat into their large profits, and one can expect barriers and resistance

Of course, there will be those who will rebut the renewable energy alternatives altogether.

Meanwhile, mass consumption of fossil fuel products undoubtedly helps keep the average consumer quiet about the planet’s greatest polluters, lest they feel and/or be publicly deemed hypocritical. These also include those people who like idling their parked vehicles for hours with the air conditioners turned on.
