Calling Joe Donnelly on Biofuels versus Hydroelectric Power

February 11, 2008

From Kathleen Petitjean’s new blog, If We Only Connect:

I called Joe Donnelly’s local office today (574) 288-2780 and spoke with an office intern named Kelly. I told her about the hydroelectric plant South Bend had intended to build on the East Race back in the 1980’s.

I asked Kelly to ask Joe Donnelly if there was any money in the current Energy bill before Congress that could help fund the hydroelectric plant in South Bend.

I realize that Mr. Donnelly is very supportive of biofuels, however we now know that biofuels only increase greenhouse gas production.

I will report back on what Mr. Donnelly reports to me.
