Beyond Coal Town Hall Meeting

April 21, 2010
Vancouver, Washington

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.


Date: Wednesday, April 21, 2010. 6:30 pm - reception. Program starts at 7pm.


Location: Water Resources Education Center, 4600 SE Columbia Way in Vancouver



Presenters include:


Ted Nace - Author of Climate Hope: On the Front Lines of the Fight Against Coal.

Doug Howell - Director of the Sierra Club's Coal-Free Northwest campaign.

Maye Thompson - Environmental Health Program Director for Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility.
