Comment on WA CO2 reporting rule TODAY 2016 July 22 by 11:45pm

Chapter 173-442 WAC, Clean Air Rule
Chapter 173-441 WAC, Reporting of Emissions of Greenhouse Gases

Proposed plan largely exempts some of the most egregious CO2 emitters, such as the Port Townsend Paper Corp, through special considerations (“EITE” or energy-intensive trade-endangered designation), loose and generous cap-and-trade or alternative good works provisions, and blatantly by the statutory omission of so-called “biogenic” CO2 emissions. These types of favors render much of plan meaningless.

Write them and let it be on record that we want plans that result in real and significant CO2 reductions, not just paper results.
