The Sierra Club’s War on Coal

by Chris Horner

A new report I’ve authored on the Sierra Club’s war against coal [PDF] is up on the Capital Research Center’s site. Here’s a preview:

The United States has been called the “Saudi Arabia of Coal” because of our large domestic supply of this reliable and affordable energy source which helps guarantee American prosperity. But the phrase causes great distress in the environmental movement. The Sierra Club has launched a campaign to curtail coal use in America. Not only does it want to block the construction of new coal-fired power plants, which are intended to replace the nation’s aging coal infrastructure and power new economic growth. Sierra also wants to close existing plants that provide half of our nation’s electricity.
