Obama’s coal-reduction plan: Praise to the president for taking action

Many, many thanks are due to President Obama for having the courage to propose new rules limiting carbon emissions from U.S. power plants [“Obama’s coal plan catches up with climate policy in Olympia,” Opinion, June 4].

When Congress does little or nothing about climate change, at least our president takes action. Emissions from power plants are enormous contributors to greenhouse gases, and so these rules are a major step forward.

In Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee has also led the way with serious climate-change proposals. Our state is fortunate to find itself leading the way for the president’s new rules.

And for those who profit so greatly from existing fossil-fuel use: It’s time to get on board and help this planet and not continue to abuse it for sheer monetary gain.

Mike Shaw, Edmonds
