PG&E is lagging
in green innovation

Re: “EV batteries might aid the power grid and win drivers” (Page C7, June 8).

The article in Saturday’s Business and Technology section never referenced the fact that Green Mountain Power company in Vermont already offers programs for using customer batteries to store and deliver power.

The company, led by President Mari McClure, is very advanced in its approaches to power production and delivery that do not encourage the use of new technologies, unlike our PG&E.

Country’s future
depends on Biden

“Character matters” should be the slogan for President Biden’s reelection campaign. No matter what you think about his policies, anyone can see that Joe Biden is a man of principle, honest and hardworking. He is the kind of man you can trust to keep his word.

In contrast, his opponent is well-known for lying, cheating, bullying and being downright nasty. Worst of all, this man will take credit for anyone’s success while always refusing to accept responsibility for failure.

We must remember that character builds nations and reject this imposter challenging our sitting president and reelect Joe Biden. The country’s future depends on it.

U.S. voters must
reject authoritarianism

Re: “Mexican election is no reason to celebrate” (Page A7, June 7).

Shortly after his election, Joe Biden said, “We’ve got to prove democracy works.” Kristina Foltz’s column says the current world struggle is between authoritarianism and democracy. At stake is individual liberty. It is not a competition between communism or socialism versus capitalism. Nor is it conservative versus liberal. There are autocrats who are communist and capitalist. She notes that the newly elected Mexican president promises to continue the socialist agenda of her predecessor, but also espouses his authoritarian proclivities.

Americans now have the choice between democracy and authoritarianism. Make no mistake, Donald Trump is the authoritarian candidate. He is not really a conservative; he is an authoritarian. Authoritarian leaders start out with a populist message appealing to the masses, generating polarization. But they eventually lead to government control of individual freedom. If we enjoy the liberty and prosperity that our democracy has given us, we must reject Trumpism.

Mexico election strikes
blow for feminism

Re: “Mexican election is no reason to celebrate” (Page A7, June 7).

The headline ignores the feminist meaning of the election. This is a huge gap in the glass ceiling.

Who knows, maybe someday the United States will catch up with our southern neighbor.

Article doesn’t measure
Russia’s weakness

Re: “Is it now time talk about Ukraine peace?” (Page A6, June 7).

Daniel DePetris’ piece about Ukraine was wrong. Russia is losing the war. The resources of Ukraine with NATO and other countries’ support are greater than the resources of Russia.

The Russian economy is in downfall. Vladimir Putin is running out of money due to the war effort, sanctions and Ukrainian attacks on oil refining. He has used up reserves. He is raising taxes. Up to 700,000 Russians have left to avoid conscription.
