Nancy Adams-Cogan letter to the editor in the Press-Citizen Apr 13, 1915

For heaven’s sake!

Why should we accommodate corporation convenience in transporting harmful products under, over, around or through the ground on which we live, breathe and have our being?

Let corporations work harder to develop safe, non-damaging energy sources, and stop gouging Mother Earth! Let us retain our local and national control over quality and safety standards, sales and taxes as the cost of civilization and employment.

Have we as a nation and community no enlightened self-interest in the health and well-being for our citizens? Global interchange and interaction must not be controlled by global corporate interests. We need not sacrifice air and water quality our grandchildren will need for the profit levels of corporations.

No Bakken pipeline, no Fast-Trak for undesirable trade agreements. Please! Itʼs all connected to money and power, not the actual welfare of the people.

Nancy Adams-Cogan
