Letter: George Will’s intellectual turbine no longer spinning
First Published Mar 01 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 01 2014 01:01 am

It’s ironic that in attacking those who question our continued reliance on fossil fuels, George Will reveals himself to have nothing left in his tank ("Perfect climate for liberals," Opinion, Feb. 26).

One would figure that an intellectually sharp conservative would reject the facile politics of climate-change denial and embrace limited-government solutions to the problem of carbon pollution, such as a revenue-neutral fee on carbon emissions. However, Will seems to find it easier to insult environmental activists.

As a former fan of Will — and as a former Republican — it pains me to say this, but his intellectual turbine is no longer spinning.
