Letters to the Editor

Eyes wide open

My family has been trying to do our small part to help ease global warming and conserve energy. But thanks to Larry Parmeter (letter March 8), I now realize that we've been duped into making sacrifices for the common good that Al Gore and the "Hollywood glitterati" haven't made themselves.

By installing solar panels and energy-efficient windows, for example, we've sacrificed huge chunks of our Pacific Gas Electric bill. And by walking and riding my bike when I can, I've personally sacrificed about 30 pounds over the last few years. And I don't even want to think about how much gas we've missed out on buying.

What fools we've been!
