How much more evidence do we need that Long Island's antiquated power plants at Northport and Port Jefferson must be shut down ["Lawsuit filed to improve power plant," News, Aug. 27]?

The plants are polluting our air and killing marine life. The only reason they're still operating is that politicians want to retain the taxes the plants generate.

How about reducing the size of government and cleaning up our air and water?

Richard Amper, Riverhead
