Sustainability: Tell President Obama: No more toxic sludge

Sierra ClubSierra Club

Coal-fired power plants produce more toxic waste than any other industry in the United States, including the chemical, plastic, and paint manufacturing industries. They spew millions of pounds of pollutants into our waters every year. And the problem is only getting worse.
The EPA estimates that the amount of toxic wastewater from these plants is going to increase 28% over the next 15 years. That means more heavy metals and more toxic sludge in more streams and rivers, resulting in more contaminated rivers, more unhealthy streams, and more poisoned wildlife. Tell President Obama that you want pollution free water!
