LETTER: Leaders have surrendered our state with energy bill

To the Editor:

On Wednesday morning, Gov. Pat McCrory held a ceremony on the campus of North Carolina State University to sign Senate Bill 786, the Energy Modernization Act. Instead of a ceremony, it should have been referred to as the unconditional surrender of our state's green heritage to the petrochemical industry. The governor should have been ashamed to sign a bill that is the inverse of our state's motto "Esse Quam Videri."
