GOVERNOR BROWN CALLS foR regiONAL ALLIANCeS
"The city of Oakland took an important step recently
documenting the health and safety risks, and climate impacts
of coal and specifically banning its shipment through the city.
Other localities should follow suit --
and the state should too -- to reduce and, ultimately,
eliminate the shipment of coal through all California ports."-

TRUTH & CONSEQUENCES FACTS
No Coal — No Air Pollution
Plants processing and/or burning coal are the largest single source of carbon pollution in the United States. Reducing carbon pollution from industrial plants will save lives and improve health. The coal corporations operations are currently spewing toxics into the air we breathe. Here’s why it's so important to reduce power plant pollution.
Carbon pollution traps heat in our air raising the Earth’s temperature. Warmer temperatures help generate ozone and smog, which can cause shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing — and can worsen asthma and other lung diseases. This can cause people to require medical care or hospitalization, and even result in premature death.
Rising temperatures from heat-trapping carbon pollution leads to droughts, increasing risk of wildfires threatening homes, food and water supplies. However, that’s not all we get from power plants. There’s also particle pollution known as soot. This form of air pollution causes heart attacks and strokes and increases the risk of early death.
Sadly the list keeps growing. Mercury can lead to developmental birth defects. Nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide trigger asthma attacks and increase the risk of hospital and ER visits. These pollutants already affect the lives of millions of Americans. Reducing pollution from plants will improve health and save lives.
