Letters to the Editor

October 1, 2022

John Kerry, Al Gore and the New York Times wrap them­selves in a toga of moral­ity for their po­si­tion on cli­mate change. They ought to visit In­dia or Africa or South Amer­ica to see the naked truth — what the lack of af­ford­able en­ergy does to the lives of the poor. I’m glad that Mr. Mal­pass isn’t buy­ing their arguments.

What’s the matter with Singapore?

I have been visiting Singapore every year to lecture for the past twenty years. I love the place. Why? it’s “Green, Clean and Safe”. This year I find the place absolutely stifling. Reminds me of the city in George Orwell’s novel “1984.” Its “Trace Together” policy captures every movement of mine. No doubt its intentions are worthy but for God’s sake Covid is not the plague. Treating it as if it is one has dire consequences. It is killing Singapore’s economy. In America where I come from it is “Live and Let Live,” In Singapore it apparently is “Live and Let Die.” I want to live. End these mandates! Open up the economy! NOW!

They say they will save the planet — but for whom?

“So­lar and Wind Force Poverty on Africa” (op-ed by Yow­eri K. Mu­seveni, Oct. 25) — and all un­der the guise of sav­ing the planet. But sav­ing it for whom? Sev­eral hun­dred mil­lion Africans live in poverty, thanks partly to a lack of re­liable en­ergy. The im­po­sition on the Third World of green man­dates, like tar­iffs, must in­evitably ham­per poor na­tions’ abil­ity to pro­duce goods and ser­vices.
