Let's Move Beyond Coal: Make Washington the FIRST COAL-FREE STATE

Help us to make Washington a coal free state by phasing out the TransAlta coal plant, which is responsible for 20% of our electricity.

The TransAlta coal plant is the largest source of global warming pollution in the state. It's the largest source of toxic mercury pollution, which is especially dangerous to children and future mothers, and is also responsible for haze pollution which destroys the beauty of 12 wilderness areas, including Mt. Rainier.    WE CAN DO BETTER.    We can replace coal with clean, renewable forms of energy like wind, solar and efficiency that will create jobs and reduce global warming.   Washington can be a national leader on clean energy. Over the next several months, we will be turning the heat up on Governor Gregoire, urging her to be a leader in getting us off our dirty coal habit.   We can make Washington coal free, but we can't do it without your help.
