vidTO: Stop the Plant?


[ click video to watch | running time = 8mins ]

Last month we learned of the deal that was passed to green-light the construction of a new Portlands Gas-fired Energy Plant near Cherry Beach.

Here's what we know for sure - we need power, and it has to come from somewhere. While building a new plant to provide more energy seems like a simple solution, a number of politicians and concerned citizens disagree, and feel that conservation and other more environmentally sound sources should first be explored.

Conducting an official Environmental Assessment (EA) prior to the approval of the new gas-fired seems logical to me, and would be worth the cost.

Watch the video and decide for yourself, and if you stumble upon any sources of "Start the Plant" campaigns, please send them our way so we can show the other side of this issue.
