Speakers: Julia Hathaway, Sierra Club, and Dr. Lynn Ringenberg, president of Physicians for Social Responsibility/Florida
Duke Energy's Crystal River power plant is the nation's 12th dirtiest. The two coal burning units spew pollution into the entire Tampa Bay region. Come and meet Julia Hathaway, organizer of the new Sunshine State Clean Energy Coalition which kicks off Nov. 13 with a rally at the St. Petersburg office of Duke Energy.
The Sunshine State Clean Energy Coalition is an alliance of business, environmental, health, labor and faith-based groups dedicated to moving Florida away from coal-fired power plants and toward renewables like solar and energy efficiency.
Join the kickoff or come to the meeting to learn about the coalition and how you can take action to fight dirty coal! Julia will be joined by Dr. Lynn Ringenberg who will address the dangers and health risks of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking" which is threatening the Floridan Aquifer.
