Letter about supporting clean energy


Fri, Mar 15th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I just returned from the 350.org march in Washington, D.C. where 50,000 people stood in the cold and listened to people from around the world beg us to take a stand, to be responsible and turn the tide of climate change away from non-renewable energy sources into life-giving alternatives. We marched from the Washington Monument to the White House to show and tell the world that we believe the Keystone XL Pipeline is a disaster for our environment, for the future and a bad economic idea. There were thousands of signs and the one, “There is no planet B,” said it all.

The day after the march we went to visit Senator Klobuchar, Senator Franken and Congressman Walz and had the opportunity to speak with their staff. They all encouraged us to speak our truth—to speak out! One of the most powerful things each one of us can do is to hand write a letter, that is delivered, opened and read that tells them what you stand for. The message is simple; stop the pipeline and refocus our resources to support clean energy (solar and wind).

Please write President Obama at Executive Office of the President, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, D.C. 20500; Senator Klobuchar, 302 Hart, SOB, Washington D.C.20510; Senator Franken, 309 Hart, SOB, Washington, D.C, 20510; and, Congressman Walz, U.S. House of Representatives, 1034 Longworth House, Washington, D.C. 20515.

Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, It seems every time Stan Gudmundson submits a commentary it is followed up by a snarky and mocking personal attack by Jerry Grehl. He even had to take one more mean shot at Mitt Romney. These attacks are right out of the far left pla .....
