Cville Residents Push to Cut Carbon Pollution at VA Plants

Posted: Updated:

A newly released environment report says we need to cut carbon pollution by cleaning up Virginia's dirtiest power plants.

An Environment Virginia representative was joined by Charlottesville dignitaries and residents in front of City Hall to urge for action on climate change.

The report, titled "America's Dirtiest Power Plants," says the state's biggest carbon polluter produces as much global warming pollution as $1.2 million cars each year.

"Power plants are the elephant in the room when it comes to global warming.  If we are serious about acting on climate, then this demands that we clean up the dirtiest power plants," said Kimberly Williams with Environment Virginia.

Environment Virginia says people can take action by calling on state legislators such as senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine to support cutting carbon pollution.
