To the editor:
I read in Friday's paper that our Kansas Senate had OK'd the proposal to allow coal plants in Kansas. On the radio, the Sunflower Electric Power Corp. is asking that people call their legislators and tell them to vote for the coal-fired power plants. You can also call them and ask them to vote "no."
Kansas ranks third in the nation in wind power potential. Wind energy is an inexhaustible, affordable domestic resource. It would not have negative impacts on our air and water resources. In an independent statewide poll taken in January, Kansans supported development of wind power and denied air-quality permits for two 700-megawatt coal-burning plants in our state. So don't our senators understand the word "no"? I'm calling to tell them to vote "no."
