Quake questions


Gazette staff

If there’s one area in which Oklahoma excels at inclusiveness, it’s natural disaster. Tornadoes, blizzards, drought — hell, why not earthquakes, too?

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?

No time for pipeline


Nathaniel Batchelder
Oklahoma City residents Nancy Zorn and Stefan Warner are among several members of the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance arrested for nonviolently protesting construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Opposition to the pipeline and development of the Canadian tar sands is based on a long-range view of tar sands development and its threat to sustainability on earth.
