To the Editor:
When [President Joe] Biden was elected, the next day, through executive order, he negatively affected the supply of gasoline, diesel and natural gas. He has now announced that we are going to add 5% more ethanol to gas. If you know anything about ethanol, ethanol creates more carbon producing it, it lowers your gas mileage and it raises your emissions, your carbon footprint.
Another factor, with the shortage of natural gas, most of the electricity produced in the Northeast is through large commercial turbines that run on natural gas. They also run on fuel oil. They are using all fuel oil in them. They don’t run as efficiently and they produce more emissions than natural gas, so in the name of green energy and saving the planet, we are now producing more pollution.
