Letters: Red lights

Letters: Red lights


How many red lights need to flash for those supporting the methanol plant proposed by the Chinese-government backed Northwest Innovation Works?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned governors to be extremely wary of China, which he said was targeting individual U.S. states in a strategic effort to expand its economic and political influence.

While addressing the National Governors Association meeting, Pompeo urged governors to be wary of Chinese investment and influence. “The lesson is the competition with China is not just a federal issue. It’s happening in your states with consequences for our foreign policy, for the citizens who reside in your states and indeed for each of you.”

This is us, people.

Don’t drink their toxic Kool-Aid. The Chinese wanting to build the world’s largest methanol plant in our backyard for their benefit at our expense is exactly what Pompeo is referring to.

Thank God Gov. Jay Inslee is no longer supporting this disastrous project, and I urge all of you who have not done adequate research on the project to do the same.
