As a conservative, I found John E. Sununu’s Dec. 10 op-ed “Best energy policy? None” objectionable, given what an overwhelming consensus of leading climate scientists now know about climate change. I agree that government has no business picking winners and losers, but saddling future generations with potential runaway climate change would be immoral.
Environmentalists have a conservative desire: that our children and grandchildren live in a world with a climate similar to the one that Sununu and I were born into. This climate has persisted for the last 11,500 years, and supports life on earth as we know it.
