Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - OPINION -

ONE truth should now be patently clear - coal is not the cause of our en­ergy prob­lems and non-dis­patch­able re­new­ables are not the so­lu­tion.

And when fringe-dwelling politi­cians des­per­ate for their one day in the sun al­low green economists to play mar­ket games with the im­mutable physics of essen­tial ser­vices, the vot­ing pub­lic will in­evitably have their days of dark­ness.

As is the case in any emo­tively charged is­sue of prac­ti­cal con­se­quence, lead­ers will be dis­abled from im­ple­ment­ing an ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion to the prob­lem un­til they have mus­tered the political courage to iden­tify and deal with its root cause. MARK DYER, Rock­ing­ham
