Hard to swallow

Dear Editor:

I am no hydrologist, or a historian for that matter; however, when it comes to trading our nation’s precious natural resources for the glutinous consumption of energy, past experience should teach caution.

The natural beauty of the mountains and streams of our Magic Valley are not renewable resources. No one comes to this pristine place to see yet another power plant.

We must deal with energy, just as we need to take care of our sewage, but as a friend of ours used to say, “There’s some shit we won’t eat.”
