…I couldn’t stop myself.  I don’t like to make fun of well-meaning people, but sometimes…

This letter was in the New York Times today, or rather, in the Soviet equivalent in…1929?

To the Editor:

Citizen Osterbrook knocks down the straw man of zero-emissions coal-fired power plants to prop up arguments for a path towards bourgeois endorsement of old, dirty, dangerous technology.

He is mistaken when he says that new energy needs cannot be met with clean energy sources alone. We must stand with our forward-thinking leader and comrade on this, and meet our new energy needs by commanding the technologies of the future.

Instead of perpetuating coal, let us instead become again that country that, when put to the test, built socialism in one country!

Wind and solar power can meet our new energy needs through technology available today. All we need is the political will to harness it. Naysayers like Mr. Osterbrook will leave us in the dustbin of history!
