The Clean Power Plan has political influence, and the leaders need to use it to reach to the citizens. These elected officials should use this plan to show their actual leadership and not just their compliance to their duties. We can integrate the policy with a stronger and healthy economy if only we educate the local communities about the disadvantages of using the coal. All elected officials must be in a position to implement the long-term and logical thinking of using renewable energy. The drought, poor air, and the increased forest fires are the proof of carbon components in the atmosphere.
As a community, we can change this type of environment by encouraging companies that fight the use of coal in the region. Many investors have already shown interest in providing clean energy. These companies will not only provide clean power but also create jobs and help in the growth of our economy. The article aims at seeking support from the local society and the leaders to support this policy. It was published through the Reno Gazette-Journal.
