Consequences of the Power Line

Dear Editor:
Public Service Commission, presently reviewing American Transmission Company's application to construct the Cardinal-Hickory Creek power line, should consider the fact that the line will continue to transmit energy made largely from carbon-based fuels (about 65%) for the next several years. This is precisely not the time to utilize these fuels. The attempt to do so contradicts our absolute imperative to bring down atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide and methane, the principal ingredients causing our climate crisis. CO2 emissions reached an all-time high in 2018 and methane, a gas more potent than CO2, is increasing at 10% per year (Global Carbon Project).
Put the health of our planet before profit. Promote an Ecological Economics.
