Comment from Bhakti, Sara, Ph.D.
Just one coal plant - Centralia's Big Hanaford Power Plant - is generating our state's biggest cloud of global warming pollution. I encourage the phasing out of coal plants in my state of Washington and throughout the northwest. Now is the time to invest in clean energy and green jobs and divest from dirty coal and its devastating environmental impacts. Any final plan should actually reduce carbon emissions. Lets become the first region in the country to go completely coal-free and move towards cleaner forms of energy including wind and solar power. Thank you for this opportunity to comment during the public comment period.
