I read with great concern your article “N.C. energy company planning plant in Grays Harbor County,” in the Oct. 14 Economy section. Apparently no one in Washington state is aware or concerned about global warming? Please go to the site www.climatesolutions.org and educate yourselves about where we are headed. This may be the most important act you will ever undertake.
Recent Antartic ice samples have shown that during the last 100 years, carbon dioxide has increased 1000 times faster than during any recorded time in the South Pole’s millions of years of history. The Union of Concerned Scientists agrees that man is causing his own disaster (and perhaps even extinction). Yet this article is given in an unconcerned and incomplete report. Please listen to Stephen Hawking. I urge The Herald to do some extensive research on this insane power project and fulfill its responsibility to its readers. This plan seems particularly oblivious to results and is certainly not needed when wind and solar energy have proven themselves. Wind Power is currently the world’s fastest growing energy source at over 25 percent per year, and solar power is gaining rapidly. Why would we consider creating additional carbon dioxide?
