Are you for or against the building of coal-fired power plants in western Kansas?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 11, 2007
“I would rather they build more wind farms than build the coal plants.”
“I’m against it. There are plenty of viable ways to produce energy that don’t create harmful byproducts. I’m a parent, and I would like to leave a better world for my son.”
“No coal plants. They cause too much environmental pollution. They need to look to wind power for the extra energy.”
“I would say that I’m against it at this point, because the people who live out there now have the option to sustain themselves by growing fuel alternatives and don’t have to depend on the power plants for work.”
