Guestbook

OPPD's Board of Directors is accepting comments on SD-7 Revisions through May 14. Please leave your feedback here in our guestbook.

CLOSED: This comment period has concluded.

Climate change is the single most devastating problem we face today. Everything else going on comes in second. Please, join the growing list of people and institutions that recognize humans are destroying the planet, and do something about it. Pass the SD-7 resolution.

Thank you for recognizing that Earth's climate is currently changing, and that humans are the main source of that change. There is wide agreement among climate scientists, based on published papers, that humans are the main cause of climate change (see these analyses of thousands of scientists and published papers: https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1003187107 and https://doi.org/10.1177/0270467619886266 ) and to continue as we have been in recent decades is unacceptable. Thank you for doing your part to help provide a better world to today's children, and their children in the future!

I'm in favor of the revision, and only wish it was accompanied by a specific commitment to transition to carbon-neutral sourcing within a specific timeframe. The widespread scientific consensus is that human activity is the primary factor in global climate change; opinions to the contrary are factually incorrect and need to be weighed in light of that error. While the threat is urgent, we also know that costs of moving to green energy sources are dropping all the time. OPPD should recognize their responsibility to the community and adopt these changes.

I support the addition of climate language in SD-7. I applaud OPPD for taking this step; it shows a commitment to a cleaner, positive future for Nebraska and all that call it home.

hepphepp 6 months ago

I strongly support the revision.

A plan to mitigate climate change is long overdue.

Anyone opposed has no place serving on this board- clean energy is our only viable future.

Thank you!

Service to the public is your Job One. Reliable, affordable, clean energy delivered in a cost-effective way is the mission your patrons deserve and desire. As a publicly-owned utility, you cannot be distracted by politicized, trumped-up claims about alternative energy sources, climate change, etc. We cannot afford expensive fads and hunches that are not supported by facts and evidence. Leave experimentation and subjective business decisions to the private sector. Serve the public, and be mature and disciplined enough to avoid the pitfalls of green peer pressure and its super-costly nonsense. Thank you!

I strongly support the SD-7 Revisions and urge that all timelines be accelerated from 2050 to 2030.

Kevin Naylor 6 months ago

I support the SD-7 Environmental Stewardship Proposal. I urge you to pass it and to continue to look for and implement further changes that benefit the environment.
If the plants, insects, birds, animals decline, so do we. Please take the route of good environmental stewards.

Georgianne Meyer 6 months ago

Pass the SD-7 Revision. We owe the next generation a cleaner, climate-safe world.

Marla Cohen 6 months ago

The SD-7 Revision is a step in the right direction. The language is accurate and the action steps are appropriate. The revision has my emphatic support.

Robin 6 months ago

OPPD has the opportunity to be right side of history with these revisions. Not only is an ethical obligation to reduce emissions but a financial one. Renewables are becoming more feasible and there’s no incentive to provide energy on a dead planet.

Jspete 6 months ago

If it is scientific consensus that human activity contributes to climate change impacts, OPPD's board of directors should unanimously support the SD-7 Environmental Stewardship Proposal. OPPD should also be more aggressive in reaching its goal of net zero carbon emission. The situation requires more urgency than a goal of 2050. It should also be a requirement rather than a goal.

Please move forward with the SD-7 Environmental Stewardship revisions. Man-made climate change is a fact whether you 'believe' in it or not.
Our children deserve better...

Rugbykiltman 6 months ago

We 100% support OPPD moving forward with the SD-7 Environmental Stewardship revisions. Denying the scientific fact of the existence of climate change serves no useful purpose; the action steps provided by the revisions DO. Your decisions have long term impact, and this is an important step to ensure that not only is our environment protected for a long time to come, but that OPPD continues to be a leader in providing affordable, SUSTAINABLE energy to its customers.

Wellsandt 6 months ago

Please move forward with SD-7: Environmental Stewardship revisions. It is important for OPPD to not only acknowledge human impact on the environment but also move toward the commitment to do better whenever they can.

MMDaley 6 months ago

I am a firm believer that the revisions are definitely needed in regards to climate change preferably before the 2050 goal. I also believe that we were all foolish not to take climate change seriously back in the late '80's. It is seriously the most important issue to address.

LJ Nelson 6 months ago

I strongly support the SD-7 revisions that recognize human contributions to climate change.

RobertF 6 months ago

We support OPPD's adoption of the SD-7 Revisions and applaud the leadership it provides in combatting climate change caused by carbon dioxide emissions, Bruce and Jackie Bode-Steinke

Bruce Bode-Steinke 6 months ago

We support SD-7 and the action steps OPPD proposes concerning renewable energy. Affordable and reliable can co-exist with clean and renewable. Mark and Monica L.

mlondon 6 months ago

I support SD-7 for both its language and action steps OPPD will take. I give input as a human and as a public health nurse. I, we and systems (OPPD) have to recognize and take actions re: humans’ contributions to environmental decline. I, we and systems have an ethical responsibility to apply Evidence-Based Research.
