GPB: Powering down for people

A few days ago, following the coal miners' accident, a bishop in West Virginia commented:
"Our country should realize that West Virginia pays too high a price when we turn on our electricity...As one of the greatest suppliers of electricity in our country, we must reflect on what producing this energy truly costs."

On today's Green Phone Booth, I'm posing the question: Is the "inconvenience" of cutting back on our electrical use worth saving a life?

Join the discussion.

Just like our decisions about the food we buy -- every decision to use a resource has far reaching consequences. This Bishop's post has a powerful message -- we should pay more attention.
