Subject: Coal mines are biggest destroyers of rural  lands and "e" stands for environment

The Editor
Financial Post

Copy to: Ms. Angela Bischoff, Outreach Director, Ontario Clean Air Alliance (OCAA): Recent poll shows 86 per cent of Quebecers support Wind power because it is clean and a source of income for rural people. As such, you are right to promote wind energy.

Coal mines are biggest destroyers of rural lands and �e� stands for environment

Re: �That �e� stands for evil,� by Lawrence Solomon, Oct. 6.

Lawrence Solomon is also a great fan of coal as a source of energy in China and India despite the fact that coal mines are destroying valuable agricultural lands in rural areas in both countries. Toxic runoffs from coal mines are also polluting waters of rivers and lakes, killing both humans and fish stocks. Facing an environmental catastrophe, China is shutting down coal-fired  power plants, replacing them with solar and wind, because they are non-polluting.

A recent poll found 86 per cent of Quebecers favour wind turbines, because they produce no pollution and are a source of income for rural people.

As for the electric car,  it may be interesting to note that the electric automobile, quiet and easy to operate, was popular around the turn of the 20th century, but it lost out to the gasoline automobile because there was no battery that could carry it very fast or far.  All have changed with the mass production of all-electric Tesla 3 this summer.

Elon Musk, CEO of California-based Tesla Motors, has just rolled out his much awaited Tesla 3. With the base price of $35,000 and a range of 350 kilometres, it is aimed at the higher end of the mass market. Tesla Motors will roll out half a million Model 3 by the end of this year. Popularity of Tesla 3 is evident from 400,000 buyers paying up $1,000 down payment. In its October issue, Financial Post Magazine has put Tesla 3 as top 3 of the Top 10 Most Anticipated Autos For 2018.

Electric cars are once again generating the biggest automotive headlines around the world. GM has just rolled out its Bolt EV. At $30,000, it too boasts more than 350 kilometres of range. Almost 50 new pure e-car models will come to market globally between now and 2022, including cars from Daimler and VW.

E-cars have zero tailpipe emissions. The burning of fossil fuels by gasoline cars produces toxic chemicals polluting the air we breathe. E-cars, powered by wind, solar and hydro, are pollution-free. Also e-cars need less maintenance as they do not need oil, coolants and muffler changes. As such, it is far more economic. With the price of e-cars coming down, no subsidy will be needed to induce the consumers. The future belongs to electric cars.
