Thank you to Treehugger for releasing this great video about coal pollution in Chicago.
Two of the nation’s oldest coal plants still operate within Chicago city limits. Combined, those plants kill over 40 people a year and have given hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans respiratory illnesses. Which is why concerned citizens want the plants out of their backyard.
Treehugger interviewed a number of residents who had come out to watch the Greenpeace protest, and they told Treehugger why they hope the city pays attention to their calls to quit coal.
