Bashing coal

Letters to the Editor

Doug Rixmann
Very interesting commentary by the local chapter of the Sierra Club on coal (Whitney Pearson, “OG&E must move past coal”) in the April 10 Oklahoma Gazette. It's no secret that this group has openly said it wants to shut down the coal industry. Let’s examine the Sierra Club's record on their ability to be objective on said issue, shall we?

Get off of coal

Letters to the Editor

Casey Holcomb
Whitney Pearson’s April 10 commentary (”OG&E must move past coal,” Oklahoma Gazette) did an excellent job illustrating how our state stands to gain by getting off coal and leading the U.S. in making a rapid transition to clean and renewable energy.

Getting past coal

Letters to the Editor

Jody Harlan
In a recent letter to the editor in favor of burning toxic coal to generate electricity, Doug Rixmann (”Bashing coal,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette) repeatedly demonstrated his lack of understanding of the consequences of burning coal to produce electricity, as well as the costs and risks associated with retrofitting older plants rather than retiring them and replacing them with clean energy.
