New Video Highlights Dangers of Dirty Coal and Clean Energy's Bright Future

Today the Sierra Club released a new video highlighting the dangers of mining, burning, and disposing coal. This short video offers a helpful resource for explaining the problems with coal-powered dirty fuels, the benefits of clean energy, and the need to move the country beyond coal.

"It’s clear that coal is a dirty, dangerous and outdated fuel source that is making kids sick," said Mary Anne Hitt, director of the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign. "From mining, to burning, to disposal, coal is wreaking havoc on our health and our planet. We hope this video helps viewers better understand the dangers of powering our country by burning coal, and why it is so important that we transition to clean, renewable sources of energy."

Fortunately, the transition is already happening. All across the country -- from Oregon to Louisiana to Minnesota -- activists are pushing decision makers to invest in and choose a clean-energy future.
