Coal Mining: The Toxic Risk

December 16, 2011
Palmer, Alaska

Time: 7:00 pm
Location: MTA building, 480 Commercial Drive, Palmer

PSR is working with our friends in Alaska Community Action on Toxics to provide information on the dangers to health posed by proposed coal strip mining in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. If you are anywhere in the Anchorage area, please consider attending their event to learn:

  • Why coal dust is toxic, and how residents from the Mat-Su to Anchorage may be exposed
  • Other community health risks associated with coal mining
  • Organizing efforts to address community health concerns

If all goes well, you’ll view a powerful new slideshow by Dr. Alan Lockwood, PSR national board member and primary author of Coal’s Assault on Human Health.
