To the Editor:
In response to a letter in the July 6 issue, some renewables, like corn ethanol, are not beneficial according to science.
When politics get involved, they pick winners and losers. It’s who you know and how much money you spend on lobbyists, etc. Some may pan out, but the free market is a much better proving ground than the government, who can be swayed to and fro.
If you read the book, “Uncle Sam Can’t Count,” you will see the government tried to subsidize in the past, and it doesn’t work.
The free market works if left alone. It is the engine that made the U.S. the greatest country in the world. Let’s not choke it with socialism. — Bob Blonigen, Upsala
