LETTER: Utilities raising electric, gas bills

I see where Nevada Power and Southwest Gas are raising rates and saying it is because of the rising cost of natural gas (Thursday Review-Journal). Why don’t they come out and tell the truth? The reason for the higher costs is, of course, President Joe Biden’s war on fossil fuels.

Any of these misguided groups — such as the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada — that parrot the mantra that we must increase green energy are in for a rude awakening when the state’s 50 percent renewable mandate kicks in. My suggestion: Buy some heavy coats and bathing suits before they are gone in a mad rush.

The only consolation is that the people who voted for Mr. Biden are paying just as much as those of us who didn’t.

Thank you to Richard Strickland, whose May 26 letter to the Review-Journal about the federal debt provides a teachable moment for all of us.
