NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF THE WORST POLLUTERS: WRITE AND DEMAND THAT THEY CLEAN UP!

BY ON March 30, 2011

We told you where the worst polluting coal plants were based on the most recent data available, from 2009. Now we’re giving you the names and addresses of the owners of the coal plants.

Time to write! You could say: “I saw a report that said in 2009 you were one of the worst polluters in the country. Is that still true? Have you taken any steps to clean up? And if you have not–WHY THE HELL NOT?”

Okay, you probably don’t want to say that. You can think it, though; I certainly do. The more I learn about how awful a toxin mercury is, the more dumbfounded I am that anyone who cares about infants and children would want this stuff spewing into our air and contaminating our water. It harms the fetus’ brain while it is developing in utero–and it harms the developing brains of babies and toddlers.

We have to raise our voices against these polluters–for the sake of all our children.
