Four mothers from the Seattle area will Climb Against Coal this weekend.
Their voyage up Washington’s iconic Mt. Rainier will be a protest of sorts to call for the closing of the TransAlta coal plant by 2015.
TransAlta is the state’s largest single source carbon dioxide emissions. Besides global warming pollution, the plant also emits toxic mercury that fall directly on Rainier’s snowfields which feed the entire Puget Sound watershed.
If you live in the Seattle area, please join us in send off celebration on Wednesday, July 14 from 5:00-7:00pm at Ella Bailey Park, 2601 W Smith St, Seattle (Magnolia neighborhood).
