Re: the Jan. 2 column "'Pollution-free society' is needed to fight climate change."

In his cloaked bashing of our president, columnist Wayne Madsen postulates a green economy via zero emission vehicles. He cleverly forgets one component of the equation. Unless the electric power is generated by wind, solar or nuclear means (which also require power to cool, control etc.) that electric power for your car comes from... GUESS WHAT? Burning fossil fuels such as oil, coal or gas. There still ain't sumthin' for nuthin', Wayne!
