John Ihm's Letter to the Editor

By John Ihm 20 May, 2016

It's easy to point fingers and shift the blame.  Today's society is quick to prove that fact.  Lately folks are all about saving the planet, which is a great plan in my opinion.  However one must understand all the facts before committing to a cause.  The clean energy debate has many sides, both good and bad.  Solar, wind, nuclear and so forth are all great ideas it seems.  There is a company in our own backyard, Pattison Sand Company, which once again has come under the gun.  This company has employed many families over the years with little fanfare.  Workers there provide the means for the US to become a player in the oil and natural gas industry.  This is huge.  Critics will forever resent the fracking industry without fully understanding the process.  The refinement of silica sand has changed the landscape, but there is a give and take element involved.  Granted, I am an employee there and will always be biased, but try to see the whole picture.  PSC is part of the energy solution and should be commended.
