Fossil Fuel Infrastructure

It is a struggle to get decision makers to stop investing in fossil fuel infrastructure and development.  Unfortunately, time is not on the side of our environment.

The utilities commission in Indiana will soon be making a decision regarding investing over $100 million dollars in an old, outdated coal burning facility in Petersburg, Indiana.

Comments must be made by the end of the day today, September 27.  Especially if you live in Indiana, please send your comments to uccinfo@oucc.IN.gov

My response:

I strongly oppose spending more money on the coal burning facility in Petersburg.  We have to stop burning fossil fuel and adding even more CO2 to the atmosphere and contributing more to global warming.  Coal ash is a public health hazard.  All coal plants should be closed as soon as possible.
