Lynne Torgerson Opposes Penalties and Fines for using energy

I oppose the proposed penalties or fines, for using energy. For one, people have no other choice. People have not been given alternative forms of energy to use. Therefore it is not fair to punish people for using energy, before they even have a real, viable alternative. We can't punish people for simply using energy. That is very counter-productive. We want people to work and live and play and enjoy life. All of this takes energy. We do not want to reduce production or activity; we want to increase productivity. Thus, the answer is NOT to punish people for using energy. Rather, we must create alternative forms of clean energy and facilitate people's ability to obtain and use alternative forms of clean energy.
