Comment from Voeller, Estelle

The Council is to be commended for its very solid foundation for future clean energy and conservation plan. Now please make it stronger by addressing the high levels of greenhouse gas emitted by coal. Oregon law calls for a 75-percent cut in 1990's greenhouse has emissions by 2050, a figure the Council has determined will only be reached with a virtual elimination of coal from the power system. Cutting coal power has been shown to have minor rate impacts. We must take stewardship of the planet seriously for the common good of all species.
