AFFECT YOU?

 								THINK AGAIN!

						    The Truth About Coal Plants 						   
Tuesday, January 27 th 
, 2004
				Traverse City Area District Library: 7-8:30 p.m.

DID YOU KNOW THAT:

*The Tondu Corporation plans to build a new
425-megawatt coal burning 
plant on the shores of Manistee Lake

*Coal burning power plants create huge emissions. They
generate acid 
rain chemicals, emit air-borne mercury, exacerbate
smog, and contribute 
to global climate change

*50% of the mercury emitted from coal-fired power
plants can travel up 
to 600 miles from the power plant

 *The existing Filer City T.E.S. Tondu Plant already
releases 137 
pounds of mercury into the air

*Michigan already ranks 9 th in the nation in coal
plant emissions 
causing asthma, heart and lung disease, cancer,
learning disabilities 
and more

 Plan on attending this important and informational
meeting.
 
Keynote speakers:
Gerard Grabowski from the Aurora Association and
representatives from 
Manistee Citizens for Responsible Development
