ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I don’t know the background of the author of “Reconsider the petrodollar economy” (Jan. 10), but it is hard to take his position seriously when he confuses energy and power — two entirely different concepts.

The writer’s statements about “electrical energy” having “intrinsic value” since “electricity cannot be created out of thin air,” and his statement that the government should “exchange dollars for a fixed amount of electrical energy measured in kilowatts” (a blatant technological error) leave his argument incomprehensible.
