Gregoire’s climate bill

Help Washington become a leader in green technologies

Gov. Christine Gregoire proposed a strong bill to combat global warming [“Gregoire pleads for teeth in a climate bill,” NW Wednesday, March 18].

Unfortunately, the oil and gas lobbies are trying to get the Legislature to water it down.

Passing the governor’s bill is important for both our environment and our economy. If we act now, Washington can help combat global warming and become a leader in the green technologies of the future.

— Christopher Hoffman, Seattle
