Unfortunately, Trans Alta is NOT Washingon State's only coal power plant -- rather it is Washington State's only coal power plant which actually resides in Washington State. In reality, "we" have ANOTHER huge power plant which resides in Colstrip Montana, and which provides a large part of Eastside electricity for us Puget Power customers. We basically "own it" and we consume its output, but "we" produce our pollution not in our own backyard, but rather in Montana. But does that make it any better??? To pollute someone else's neighborhood???
