Speaker: Jeff Schmidt, PA Chapter Director

Coal mining, especially mountaintop removal and longwall mining, is highly destructive. It is a major cause of air pollution, global warming and waste. The Sierra Club is working to shut down existing coal-fired power plants and keep any new plants from being built. Coal use is down nationally. In Pennsylvania, nine old coal-burning plants have been retired or announced for retirement. Sierra Club also works for stricter EPA standards and promotes pollution-free and inexhaustible energy sources such as solar, geothermal and wind.
