Title: O. P. E. C. is vulnerable. [Con Ed's plan to break OPEC's grip]

Abstract

Consolidated Edison proposes burning coal at Ravenswood 3 and Arthur Kill 2 and 3 power plants. Con Ed would install electrostatic precipitators and capacity to switch to low-sulfur oil when warranted by air quality conditions. They also propose repeal of discriminatory taxes on fuels used to generate electricity (NYC tax on OPEC oil is 19% of the cost). They also recommend increased energy conservation efforts. Finally, they propose a coal and refuse-burning plant at an in-city site and a nuclear plant in Green County. The coal industry would benefit by the need for 2000 extra miners. Unless we immediately sever the rope that the oil cartel has around the necks of our people, we and our descendents will live in a nation owned by the OPEC and bought from us with American dollars that we gave them for fuel we didn't need.
