Pennsylvania and Coal [Greenpeace Coal Free Future Tour]


“1,359 people die each year, over three people per day, as a result of coal pollution in Pennsylvania? Coal plants in Pennsylvania emitted 101,690,275 tons of climate change fueling CO2, 600,918 tons of SO2 and 118,103 tons of NOx in 2009. SO2 and NOx contribute to asthma, smog, and acid rain?”

Those are some highlights (or lowlights) from Greenpeace’s new factsheet on Pennsylvania coal. Check out the full factsheet here: Coal Free Future Tour – PA fact sheet [PDF]
