Coal-fired power plants pollute the environment and cause ill health for Indiana and Kentucky kids and our elderly.

Toxic emissions of Mercury, Lead, Arsenic, Chromium, Dioxin are common from these power plants as are Sulfur Dioxide (Acid Rain), Nitrogen Oxides (Ozone/Smog) and deadly Fine Particles which are known to cause the deaths of 24,000 people in the U.S. each year.
