Power up with wind

Dear Editor:Did you know that there is a very simple way to help fight global warming in Pitkin County? By making a phone call to Holy Cross Energy, you can tell them to switch you from coal to wind power. This switch costs me an additional $3.80 per month but will prevent a lot of greenhouse gases from being emitted into the atmosphere. Currently, Colorado gets about 70 percent of it’s energy from coal, which emits carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases when burned in power plants. Wind and solar are renewable energy sources with no toxic emissions. Make the conversion to wind power, and join us in helping save the lodgepole pines and our ski resorts!Baxter PharrSilverthorne
