Richard Fireman writes about Cliffside and our self-deception in regards to NC air quality:
CEO Jim Rogers’ PR machine manages to get national and international attention by talking green, but when the rubber meets the road we get a new Cliffside power plant that will add 6 million new tons of CO2 to our atmosphere every year. This is the equivalent of 1.5 million new cars...Who owns the air — the atmosphere? Is it Duke Energy? They will claim it if we allow them.

Bill Thomas writes about the Horsepasture River:
I confess that for me personally, it is the majesty and grandeur of the Horsepasture and its surroundings that move my soul and lead me to call for protection and preservation. The time to save something is while you still have it! I and Sierra Club feel strongly that the future welfare of our county depends heavily on protection of our natural assets.
