The True Cost of Coal

On the verge of the clean energy revolution, the last thing Virginia needs is new demand for mountaintop removal-mined coal, and a 1500 megawatt plant next to the Chesapeake Bay. Join the Shenandoah Group of the Sierra Club on Tuesday, May 25 at Clementine Cafe in Harrisonburg to learn about the proposal to build Virginia's largest coal-fired power plant, and how you can take action to stop it. Here are the details:
  • WHO: Shenandoah Group of the Sierra Club, Climate Action Alliance of the Valley, friends, and neighbors
  • WHAT: The True Cost of Coal: Come learn about the campaign to keep coal out of the bay, and make sure you are not going to be asked to foot the bill for a $6 billion plant!
  • WHEN: 7pm, Tuesday, May 25th
  • WHERE: Clementine Cafe, 153 South Main Street, Harrisonburg, VA 22801-3602.
  • RSVP: http://action.sierraclub.org/NoMoreVACoal or Kate Pollard, kate.pollard@sierraclub.org or (703) 865-6659
With Shenandoah Valley Electric Co-op sending out pro-coal propaganda to members in the magazine Cooperative Living, along with postage-paid post cards to our D.C. representatives, it is important to for Valley folks to hear the other side, the true side, of the story about the true cost of coal. Please plan to attend.

perhaps you ought to be proactive and de-link from the grid and really show the coal companies! Think globally but act locally.
