Quake questions


CFN

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? Bill Haley and His Comets didn’t have Oklahoma in mind when they recorded “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” but that ’50s hit certainly has applied to the Sooner State in recent years.

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.
