Letters to the Editor

Photographer’s views opened our eyes | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

A big thank you to IslandWood, Sierra Club Seattle and Coal Free Bainbridge for sponsoring award-winning photographer David T. Hanson.

He showed us the impact of Puget Sound Energy’s coal-fired power plant — the Colstrip Generating Facility in southeast Montana. The photos provided a unique perspective on the effect of coal-fired power plants and coal mining on local communities.

We also heard two additional wonderful presentations. One by Jimmie Jia from BGI on Rethinking Energy Management and a second presentation on Beyond Coal to Clean Energy by Vinnuy Spotleson from Western Clean Energy Campaign.

We are very lucky to live on an island committed to our environment and that has community members open to enthusiastically learning how to make life better for all.

If you would like more info about getting involved locally, please email coalfreebainbridge@gmail.com.
