Kelly Mitchell, Greenpeace Coal Campaigner and Chicago resident discusses the citizen-led efforts to shut down the Salem Harbor coal plant in Massachusetts and the Fisk and Crawford coal plants in Chicago, IL. These power plants are polluting our air with toxic soot and water with toxins and making our families sick. Coal-fired power plants are an enormous source of carbon, causing global warming. Atmospheric carbon stays in air after soot settles out on residents. Fortunately, communities across the US are coming together to shut down coal-fired plants in their neighborhoods.
