'Green power costs more'

I am writing in response to "A limit to sacrifice" [letter March 8]. Many people have been quick to jump on the "bash Al Gore" bandwagon after his Oscar win. It seems like all the dittoheads have decided that the energy usage of Mr. Gore's Tennessee farm makes him a hypocrite.

Unfortunately, if your only source of news is Rush Limbaugh or the Drudge Report, you obviously missed the news that Mr. Gore pays more for his electricity because green power costs more, since the technology used to capture these renewable resources is more expensive than traditional power generation methods.
