Proposed coal plant

AtascaderoJune 5, 2014 

I was pleased to see The Tribune reporting on President Barack Obama’s proposal to cut carbon pollution from the nation’s coal-fired power plants on June 2, but I am disappointed in The Tribune’s lack of reporting on the proposed coal-fired power plant to be built in Kern County west of Bakersfield.

This plant would be near the eastern edge of San Luis Obispo County, and the public should be made aware of these plans. The Los Angeles Times reported on this issue May 24.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
