Comment from King, Sara

Hello, As someone who is very concerned about global warming and our carbon output, I would like to see this plan strengthened in the following ways: (1) Increase Energy Conservation. (2) The Final Plan Needs to Chart a Clear Course for Salmon Recovery. (3) The Final Plan Needs to Encourage Coal Plant Closures. The Bottom Line - We still can "have it all" - clean energy, wild salmon, and a healthy economy and environment - but it requires greater leadership from the Council: The Northwest has more than enough new renewable energy and new energy-savings opportunities at our fingertips to cleanly and affordably meet growing power needs, wean ourselves from dirty coal, restore endangered salmon by removing the four lower Snake River dams, and begin electrifying transportation to reduce climate pollution from that sector. Thank you again for the opportunity to comment on the 6th Power Plan. I strongly urge you to strengthen the final version to ensure that it lays the groundwork for both the effective restoration of endangered Columbia and Snake River salmon and a substantial reduction in our region's carbon footprint. This will best serve the citizens, economy, and ecology of the Pacific Northwest. Sincerely,
