Coal's Alternatives - Friendly to Air, Climate, Water, and Economy
Chris Ann Lunghino, Tennessee Organizing Representative, Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign
Coal fired power plants are dirty, expensive, and risky. Can we meet our energy needs in Tennessee without them?
Yes we can! This program will provide information about the clean energy alternatives to burning coal for power and a summary of the impacts of burning coal for power on our air, climate, and water. You'll hear about the planning process the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is currently undertaking to guide power generation for the Tennessee Valley into the next decade and how you can have a voice in that process.
You'll also learn about President Obama's Clean Power Plan and the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources on both the national and the
Tennessee economies and jobs markets,
as well as Sierra Club's efforts to assure just and responsible transitions for workers in communities impacted by coal-fired power plant closures. Come hear how you can help transition TVA and the nation away from coal, nuclear, and natural gas to reliable and affordable energy efficiency, wind, and solar to slow climate change, lower utility bills, and create thousands of high value Tennessee jobs!
Clean en-er-gy for a healthy Tennessee!
