I am a member of what we call the Energy Action Team in Corvallis, a group of concerned citizens who are helping residents and businesses lower their carbon emissions. We have about 25 to 30 members who meet regularly, donating untold hours to this cause. Our members are from all walks of life, ranging from OSU students to physicians.
The efforts we, and all participating residents and businesses, are putting into this project will save carbon emissions that are only a drop in the bucket compared to the pollution generated by PGE. I want to make the point that all Oregonians care and are affected by the pollution from this plant.
Shutting this plant, the biggest stationery polluter in Oregon, is important to all Oregonians, and I'm sure that many people in Oregon who are not customers of PGE would be happy and eager to contribute money to this cause. In fact, it would be very prudent for my team in Corvallis to divert our efforts to a campaign to collect contributions toward this goal.
PGE impacts all Oregon, and indeed the entire world. Please consider allowing all Oregonians to help work toward shutting the plant down by 2014!
