Concerned about healthy environment

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDAugust 22, 2013 

A recent opinion column by Mark Lowry claims the people again the Cherry Point coal terminal are being emotional. I agree.

The desire to live in a clean, healthy environment is emotional as well as rational.

The desire to make a short-term profit without regard to the long-term impact is also an emotion -- though not a very attractive one.
