Sierra Club: Coal bad for your health

Posted By on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 at 1:39 PM

Sierra Club organizers and other environmental groups staged a protest today at the Pulaski County Courthouse Rose Garden. Standing behind the various speakers was a huge inflatable inhaler. Subtle. The group voiced their opposition to the John W. Turk Power Plant now under construction in Hempstead County. The Sierra Club is fighting the plant in court battles over its air and water permits.

Lev Guter, an associate organizing representative for the Sierra Club, said his organization has no plans of backing down from their legal battles against the coal plant.
