Today we are going to the Marshall Coal Plant outside of Charlotte. This plant, owned by Duke Energy, has been polluting for 47 years and is one of the deadliest plants still being operated. It’s pollution causes over two thousand asthma attacks and 131 deaths a year.
Marshall also buys all its coal from mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia. This not only wipes out the tops of ancient mountains, but it is poisoning the people living there.
