"WildEarth Guardians and Xcel Energy today announced a settlement of a lawsuit asserting clean air violations at the Cherokee coal-fired power plant in North Denver that will direct nearly $450,000 to clean energy and green space projects for the neighborhoods most impacted by the plantís air pollution."

Let's keep the pressure on those coal-fired plants. The energy of yesterday has had it's day, now it's time for the clean energies of the future to take over.

This is wonderful news--I just wish it was sweeping the globe--or, at least the US.
I heartily wish that somehow corporations, etc., would wake up and would have a burning desire to voluntarily let go of coal-dependance, and want to invest in the many clean, safe alternatives!
Boy is THAT a dream!!
Thanks Nancy.
