Proposed Coal-fired Electric Plant near Waterloo

There are plans to build a huge coal-fired electric plant near Waterloo. The electricity to be generated by this plant is not for Iowans – it will be sold to big cities outside Iowa. Why do they want to build this plant in Iowa, then? Because coal fired plants create a lot of air pollution, and the air in these cities is already polluted. Our air is much cleaner, so they want to dump their pollution on us! Here we are, putting up clean efficient wind turbines to generate our own electricity, and some out-of state corporation wants to pollute our clean air to generate electricity for their use!

They get the power, they get the profits, we get the pollution. That’s not a good deal for Iowa.
