Green Front contributors Drew Grande of the Sierra Club and Carol Oldham with the National Wildlife Federation share results of a new study showing the power of wind to create jobs, clean energy AND help the economy!
Once again climate change is our focus but with new and compelling angles (never a shortage!).First up, Drew Grande returns to The Green Front to discuss a recent report from the NRDC about predicted U.S. deaths from climate-related heat waves. The Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Campaign organizer offered some encouraging news; America is now getting about 38% of its energy from coal compared to around 50% only a few years ago.
The picture is not pretty along the shore of Lake Michigan where toxic coal ash is pouring into the water from a damaged coal fired power plant.
Protecting against this very type of accident is what the most anti-environment congress just voted against!
Drew Grande of The Sierra Club in Massachusetts tells what's wrong with this picture.
