Re: E-M:/ Love mountains? Hate coal!

Enviro-Mich message from "Mark Richardson" <Mark.Richardson@macombcountymi.gov>

There was a PSC order requiring Michigan utilities to burn low sulphur
coal.  For some time this meant that the utilities obtained coal from
Wyoming or Montana.  Whatever happened to that order?

Eighteen *coal-fired power plants in Michigan* are connected to* 
mountaintop removal,* a radical form of coal mining in which mountains

are literally blown up.  If you want to see the connection between your

own power plant and the mountaintop it's removing, go to I Love 
Mountains.org <http://ilovemountains.org/>and plug in your zip code.  
With up to seven--yes, seven--new dirty coal plants proposed for 
Michigan, our state's giant carbon footprint is  warming our planet and

destroying our mountains. You can take action with Michigan lawmakers
help block these new coal plants by going to Stop the Coal Rush
