Adopt the Clean Slate Agenda - Because "Clean Coal" is a Myth

Coal is not clean. Period. Need proof?

On Dec. 22, one billion gallons of coal ash sludge and contaminated water, the waste product of coal-fired power plants of the Tennessee Valley Authority, broke through a containment area into the rivers of Harriman, Tennessee. The water in the area now contains dangerously high levels of pollutants such as arsenic.

This disaster is another stark reminder of the environmental, health and economic hazards of our over-reliance on coal as an energy source.

Please join us in urging President Obama to adopt the Clean Slate Agenda.
Dear President Obama,

There are four decisions you can make on Day One of your administration, independently of Congress, that will have an immediate impact on cutting global warming pollution and spurring a clean energy economy.

Please use your Presidential power to:

1. Direct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to grant a waiver that will allow California and over a dozen other states to limit global warming pollution from cars.

2. End the rush to build dirty coal plants by directing EPA to require all new and existing power plants limit their global warming emissions.
3. Direct your EPA to end irresponsible mountaintop removal coal mining by stopping coal companies from dumping rock and waste into valleys and streams.

4. Restore America's international leadership in the fight to end global warming by publicly committing the U.S. to cut its CO2 emissions by at least 35% by 2020.

Please show your leadership on Day One of your administration by taking action on these four issues.
