Comment from Youngberg, Eric

Dear Mark, I am unable to attend your important meeting on Wednesday. Please know that I am a firm believer in the cessation of coal burning energy plants. This type of mercury causing pollution is unacceptable in light of today's science that allows us to generate untold amounts of wind and solar energy. If we, in the state of Washington push for solar on every roof supplemented by small windmills wherever possible, both business and residential, a major national security impact results that cuts our reliance on both foreign and domestic oil. Thank you for your efforts to close Centralia's Big Hanaford Power Plant and then push for a sliding scale of tax credits based on income so that everyone can order and install green energy. Washington state should be able to lead the nation in this effort. Yours sincerely, Eric R. Youngberg 425 652-0079
