+ THURSDAY, 2014 Bolyard is well-informed Dear Editor, There are two candidates running for 13th District State Representative. I have met them both, as I was an active member of the GOP and even an elected precinct officer. I no longer belong to the Republican Party. It was under the GOP cha'Lrrnanship of Tom Dent that I, and many others, left the GOP. I found candidate Dani Bolyard to be a well-informed young woman and a refreshing change from the old guard's dictatorial style. I would encourage voters to Google her name and read about her positions on issues, or visit her Facebook page: Bolyard for Rep 2014. Kevin Moore, Moses Lake Say no to the Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the letter sent to you from Rob Briggs and Alexandra Amonette concerning their desire to limit the production of fossil fuels and expand the development of alternative energy resources. Their goal in doing so may be well and good, but their method of reaching that goal is flawed. They encouraged readers to contract Doc Hastings and urge him to help enact the Carbon Fee and Divi- dend legislative proposal. Please don't. This is anoth- er version of the bad Cap and Trade bill that President Obama was unsuccessful in getting passed even though the Democrats had control of both the House and the Senate. The benefits resulting from passing the bill are wishful th'mking at best. The Solutions Project website they referenced list- ed sources of alternative energy. They believe wind and solar energy will eventually provide for almost 96 percent of our total energy needs. Since wind and solar energy amounts to little more than 5 percent of our en- ergy production currently, can you imagine how many windmills we will see dotting our nations countryside? How long would it take to make that many windmills operational? About 200 years if we move at the same pace we have for the past 20 years. Our country has the largest energy reserves in the world, let's utilize them and become energy indepen- dent. The advantages: it would strengthen our econo- my, provide millions of jobs, result in cheaper gas and oil, reduce our debt, stop the transfer of our wealth to those countries who produce oil and are our enemies, strengthen our dollar and weaken the military capabili- ties oflSIS, Iran, Russia (68 percent of Russia's exports consists of fossil fuels) and others. The recent increase in the development of cleaner burning natural gas has reduced our country's air pollution and slowed carbon emissions. Please call Doc and request that he vote against the carbon fee proposal. Because he is the chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, urge him to do what he can to open up more public lands to fracking and drilling for natural gas and oil. Permits to alloW the production ofoil and natural gas on public lands have been reduced by almost half per year since Obama took office. Yes, we must eventually make the transition from fossil fuels to the use of alternative energy sources, but let our free enterprise system help that happen and avoid future Solyndras of the world.
