Beyond Coal Town Hall: The Path to a Clean Energy Future
Presented by Washington State Sierra Club
The TransAlta coal plant in Centralia, WA is the largest source of global warming pollution in Washington State. It's also the largest source of toxic mercury pollution, which is especially dangerous to children and future mothers, and is responsible for haze pollution which destroys the beauty of 12 wilderness areas, including Mt. Rainier.
We can do better. We can replace coal with clean, renewable forms of energy like wind, solar and efficiency that will create jobs and reduce global warming. Washington can be a national leader on clean energy. Join us for a free expert panel discussion.
