Letter: Create climate impact


Once again we are kicking the can down the road. I read the proposal to clean our air and water and I see nothing new, just a shuffling around of old-time solutions that will really stink up the environment. Double, triple the charging stations to make every mile run in cars charged with natural gas or fossil fuel, or even better, the coal-fired grid. If we had a vision we would revisit the Kalama methanol project and run that off our thousands of methane-producing dairy cows. It would be cheaper, local and mobile. But we do not believe in methanizers here.

Did you know that Kalama is the largest soy trans-shipment port on the West Coast? Did you know that Grays Harbor has one of the largest biodiesel production facilities? Did you know that using those facilities could allow Washington state to run clean-burning bio without having to enrich one of the richest men in the world by imposing a new infrastructure for the electricity for thousands of EV toys?

We are truly blessed here with SAF (sustainable airline fuels) ready to be mixed.

If we could think of renewable as being more than just sticking AAA batteries in our transportation modules, we could really create an impact on our climate and infrastructure and save money to boot.
