For too long, the coal industry has polluted our precious Great Lakes and waterways. As stewards of 1/5 of the world’s fresh water, we can’t afford to allow coal plants to continue toxic chemical dumping.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed long-overdue power plant pollution standards to limit the amount of toxic metals and other chemicals that can be dumped in our water. Unfortunately the coal industry is already trying to block them.
Coal ash contains dangerous chemicals like arsenic, mercury and lead that can leak from storage sites and pollute the environment. Coal ash pollution has been known to cause cancer and neurological deficiencies in humans and deformities in fish. We need protections to be as strong as possible - Email your legislators today!
The Clean Energy Now campaign formed in response to the "Coal Rush of 2008," during which eight proposals for new coal-fired power plants were put forward. We have been successful to this point in preventing new construction, but we need to remain vigilant and keep the pressure high on our elected leaders.
