Accelerated Phase Out of Coal-Fired Power

Alberta Wilderness Association

Posted by Kids Go Global on Dec 29, 2015

Alberta Wilderness Association has signed the following petition to speed up the process of banning coal as a power source in Alberta. Burning coal gives off a lot of C02 emissions and is very hard on our environment.

  We, the undersigned, support an accelerated phase out of coal- red electricity generation in Alberta. Coal causes more pollution than any other source of electricity, including greenhouse gas pollution as well as air contaminants such as sulphur dioxide and mercury that pose health risks. Research shows the burning of coal contributes to over 100 deaths and more than 4,000 asthma episodes in the province each year.
We urge the Alberta government to develop and implement programs, policies and legislation to replace coal by ramping-up energy conservation and developing our world-class wind, solar and other renewable resources.
