Right now Eskom is attempting to bypass pollution laws designed to protect our health. At some coal plants, Eskom is hoping to pump out eight times more pollution than the legal limit.
Eskom says complying with the law would cost them too much, and that its coal plants don't affect human health – a claim that even Eskom's own research has rubbished.
Findings show that complying with the pollution standards would prevent up to 20,000 premature deaths – not complying could cause them.
Act now: Tell the National Air Quality Officer to deny Eskom's application for a free pollution ticket.
