Comment from Cole, Kathleen

Dear Council, I have been closely following the work that your commitee has been doing this year to conserve our NW resources and meet future energy needs. I hope that in the weeks ahead, that you will be able to continue supporting conservation and holding power demands in check. History shows that cheap, plentiful energy has led to dreadful waste, dependence, environmental degradation, and global warming. It's time that we cut back on power generation while preserving our environment. And what better way to express these broader issues than by choosing salmon over power?
