Coal plants are the dirtiest, most regressive source of energy. —The Sierra Club
The United States is facing "an unprecedented rush to build new coal-fired power plants," according to the Sierra Club. "These plants," the leading environmental group claims, "are poisoning our communities and our wilderness."
The Sierra Club opposes the onrush of new coal-burning plants. Their web page on "Stopping the Coal Rush" shows a map of 83 proposed sites, a portion of the 114 slated for construction.
