Dirty Coal on the Rise in Texas

With all of the attention on the recent elections, you may have missed a story with serious implications for the future of our planet.

In Texas, the TXU Corporation plans to spend $10 billion to build 11 new dirty coal-fired power plants that will guarantee huge amounts of global warming emissions for decades to come. The company announced it is also considering major coal plant projects in the Northeast and Midwest. According to a recent New York Times article, opposition groups say “that TXU is embarking on its immense construction campaign without taking account of its role in an emerging environmental catastrophe.” And the state of Texas is already the number one carbon emitter in the country. It appears that Governor Rick Perry is fast-tracking the permit process for TXU so that the plants can be built before federal laws will hopefully be put in place.

A growing number of Texas mayors are opposing the TXU proposal through the Texas Cities for Clean Air Coalition, including the mayors of Houston, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, and over a dozen other cities statewide from both political parties. Conservative Republican Robert Cluck, the mayor of Arlington, is leading the charge on global warming in Texas — concerned for the environmental impact but as a medical doctor also for the public health impacts of dirty coal.
