Editorial: Industry Needs Power to Fuel Job Growth
In the November 30th issue of The Bellingham Herald, Brad Owens, President of the Northwest Washington Building and Constructions Trades Council, AFL-CIO, says that industry needs power to fuel job growth:
We should apply the best science and technology to develop practical ways of making the use of all energy sources more environmentally friendly, but job growth and the economy shouldn’t be held hostage in the process, or there will be no way to pay for such efforts. Those of us who dwell in the real world know that industry is what produces family-wage jobs and the tax dollars to fund vital public services. And industry needs energy to function.
