Guest Opinion: Let's Look at the Facts on Colstrip
Those who wish to see the Colstrip plants close won’t allow the facts to get in the way of negative headline. They tout a huge cleanup figure to promote their goal – full closure and complete reclamation of the Colstrip plant site. By making the cleanup appear to be so costly they hope that the plant owners will have no choice but to shut it down. Distortions of the truth meant to cause fear and scare the public with inflated price tags in order to speed up the plant’s demise are simply irresponsible.
