Did you know?

  • The coal industry spent more than $35 million in 2008 to promote the idea of “clean coal” while simultaneously polluting and burying thousands of miles of streams.
  • Coal fired power plants emit over 386,000 tons of 84 different hazardous air pollutants each year, more than any other industrial polluter.
  • Coal mining requires an estimated 70 to 260 million gallons of water every day.
  • A 2011 study led by a Harvard University professor found that the environmental damage caused by all the aspects of coal’s life cycle, including emissions and impact on climate change, cost the American public roughly $500 billion annually and increasing the true cost of coal by up to $0.17/kWh.

It might seem impossible to put a price tag on our most precious of natural resources. While we think that the true value of clean air and water are far, far beyond any dollar amount, the fact of the matter is that if we are to save our rivers, streams and skies from corporate greed and toxic pollution, then we need to fund the fight.

We need you as a member, and right now, membership comes at the right price: any price is right. Donate to Appalachian Voices today at whatever level you can, and join a movement committed to clear air, clean water and something that is truly priceless: a healthy environment for generations to come.
