Seattle Times letters to the editor

February 28, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Former environmental strategists hired by local coal companies

Greed overtakes ‘green’

We were very disappointed with Tuesday morning’s Seattle Times page-one article concerning coal trains [“ ‘Green’ strategists now back coal trains,” Feb. 26]. The word “green” now stands for money, not ecology. Greed has taken over!

–Diane Talley and Dennis Young, Seattle

‘Green’ consultants won’t slow environmental damage

Are we really shipping U.S. coal through Washington ports to have it returned in the form of global warming?

It is already next to impossible to see 10 feet in Beijing most days, so let’s help the Chinese and stop sending them this very destructive fuel source.

Hiring “green” lobbyists to influence Washington politicians doesn’t change the shortsighted and environmentally damaging impact of mining, shipping and burning coal.

–Ted Hoppin, Bainbridge Island
