STOW — “Our children and grandchildren should not have to grow up in an increasing polluted world. We want less pollution for them, along with lower energy costs.
Long ago, when coal was discovered to be the best option for heating and power, we didn’t even know what cars, planes or computers were. Since that time, we have made huge strides in almost every area, except for coal-fired power.
Let’s get modern and get going with renewable energy options. Let’s phase out the use of coal and the outrageous profits it brings companies such as FirstEnergy and its shareholders. Stop rewarding the rich few at the expense of future generations.
