A bright spot in the energy gloom


To the Editor:

As the nation weathers its horrific, self-inflicted, environmental “Pearl Harbor” in the Gulf of Mexico, we also continue to endure the ongoing, widespread, business-as-usual devastation caused by coal use and the invisible harm emanating from our fleet of nuclear power plants (tritium leaking into drinking water aquifers, for example).

Posed against the stark realities of the country’s present energy portfolio, it is most heartening to see positive signs of the times, like the new Morning Glory Farm wind turbine.

There are, indeed, viable alternatives to our traditional, inherently dangerous, power sources.
