Fossil fuels not the only cause
I have read and reread the Opinion page article "Paying Off the Environmental Deficit," May 22.
The author's choice of words is, in some cases, somewhat misleading and his solutions not necessarily viable. Government regulations do not always yield the intended results. More often than not, the regulators simply do not understand the effects of their legislative efforts outside their narrow focus.
Surely the author has some solutions that will not lay our environmental problems solely at the door of fossil fuels. Casper W. Zublin, Bakersfield, Calif.
