Letters: Closed mind evidence of liberalism

Dear Editor,

Could there be a better example of the modern-day “liberal” mindset than the letter from Diane Todosychuk: Don’t bother me with evidence or the facts; I know what I believe, and since you don’t agree, I’ll use your paper for my bird cage! [Open forum drives away reader, Aug. 14 Letters, Langley Advance].

If she wants to use only solar, wind, or even bicycle-peddle generator power, she is more than welcome to do so. But don’t try to prohibit those who prefer time-proven fossil fuel from using it.

I can guarantee you that any sane person will immediately switch to so-called “clean” fuel as soon as it becomes economically advantageous to do so. It is only the insane people who want to prohibit (or even inhibit) fossil fuel energy when there is no viable economic alternative.

I wonder how she heats her home in winter without fossil fuel? I’d like to see how her solar furnace (or windmill furnace) does to keep her home warm.

Does she hitch up her horse and buggy for the two-day (each way) trip to go to Vancouver? Or is she a hypocrite like virtually all of the other modern-day “greens?”
