Letters: Don'T Wreck Our Economy With Green Incentives



Nate McCullough (“Easier to cast blame than find solution to global warming,” Aug. 26, 8A) is correct that the world is getting warmer, people do play a part in that warming and carbon emissions are bad for us. However his solution, providing incentives to corporations (whom he regularly sees as evil entities) is actually part of the reason our economy stinks.

The ultimate incentive for any corporation is quit buying its product, so the solution rests with us, the consumers, not politicians creating loopholes. Government incentives distort the free market and absolve consumers of their responsibilities to each other.
