To the editor:
The quote from Steve Morris in the March 22 front page article on the veto of the coal plant bill demonstrates the incredible lack of forward-looking leadership and understanding that so many of our elected officials are now exhibiting. We owe it to our future generations to make decisions based on scientific fact and not give in to the pressure of short-term monetary gain and forecasts of economic doom that politicians use for their own agendas.
With this in mind, the quote should read "Allowing this dirty coal technology to be part of Kansas' energy future will result in a devastating increase to the costs our children must pay in order to clean up the mess we have made." Thank goodness that our governor knows better and has the backbone to act.
