Stopping the Coal Rush
The Sierra Club Environmental Law Program has now helped stop the construction of over 150 proposed coal-fired power plants that, if built, would undermine any chance of stabilizing our climate. As a result of our work and the contributions of many regional and local organizations, the “coal rush” is almost dead. Not a single new coal plant has broken ground in nearly two years. Just a few states – Kentucky, Georgia, and Texas – persist in their plans to build new coal plants. They remain squarely in our sights.
