Clean fuels needed

I commend a recent letter writer on his switch to an all-electric form of transportation. However, isn’t that just trading one fossil fuel for another?

The last time I checked, a good portion of this country’s electricity was being generated mostly by coal and nuclear plants. It is my opinion that our country needs to start taking bigger steps toward the use of other renewable energy sources — wind, solar and bio-fuels to name a few.

Only then will we truly be able to end our addiction to oil.
