Two questions

These two issues currently in the news

  • The coal-fired power plant at Colstrip in eastern Montana is currently producing 18 million tons of carbon dioxide annually, along with many other tons of even worse-polluting gasses.
  • Montana has recently created a new state office, the Energy Infrastructure Promotion and Development Division, to promote new power lines and other energy infrastructure to help encourage new electric power plants in Montana.

compel me to ask these two questions:

  • Do we really want to destroy clouds this white, air this pure and sky this blue?

Blue sky, white clouds

  • When will we stop building more and more power plants to meet more and more per capita power demand and start getting at what we really need to do: conservation?
