Please join the Sierra Club, South King County Group for our March General Meeting. All are welcome.Valley View Library, 17850 Military Rd S, SeaTac
Particular attention will be devoted to the Club’s “Coal Free PSE Campaign” including a PowerPoint presentation by National Staff. We’ll also be discussing various issues such as our Soos Creek Park Restoration Project, Group outings, etc.Regarding the PSE/coal issue - coal is a dirty, dangerous and increasingly expensive fuel. In Washington, if you are a Puget Sound Energy (PSE) customer, you may be surprised that over one-third of your energy comes from coal. While PSE supports many clean energy programs, a large portion of the energy supplied by Puget Sound Energy comes from the biggest, most polluting coal-fired power plant in the West—the Colstrip Generating Facility in Eastern Montana. Right now, PSE has a momentous opportunity to invest in clean energy and create good jobs in Washington State by moving beyond coal. Instead of continuing to rely on dirty coal, which harms people’s health and the environment, PSE should replace coal with cleaner forms of energy. Puget Sound Energy (PSE) can move beyond coal. There are abundant resources to supply energy to PSE customers without relying on dirty and dangerous coal, and specifically without relying on Colstrip. We can help PSE do the right thing and kick the coal habit. So please join us to learn about the issue and how you can help.
