Comment from Mclaughlin, William C.

I'm writing to ask you to add my voice and opinions for your Draft 6th Plan. I would like to advocate for the following points and acctions: First, the phasing out of coal fired plants. There is not now nor is there any forseeable chane that the burning of coal will be clean enough to pass intelligent muster. Second, include a base price estimate for carbon as other boards and functionaries have done. Third, make sure the plan sets goals to reduce CO2 emissions in our Region. Fourth, push strong energy conservation and the use of renewable erergy resources. Thanks for letting me participate. Bill McLaughlin 34819 Snowberry Lane Polson, MT 59860 406-887-3251
