Town Hall Meeting: Discuss our reliance on dirty coal in LA with The Sierra Club

Coal provides Los Angeles with about 40% our electricity and more than 24% of our global warming pollution.  From the mine to the plant, to the ash pond, coal is our dirtiest energy source. It causes asthma and other health problems, destroys our mountains, and releases toxic mercury into our communities.  Continuing our dependence on coal chains us to dirty energy and prevents us from making the changes we need to bring about a clean, secure energy future.  Coal has an impact on every single community – one way or another.

The Sierra Club will discuss this issue, and how we can bring about a change in the energy policies of DWP.
