Andhra Pradesh is set to create a world record! But not a good one.Within the next decade alone, one single state of Andhra Pradesh will have carbon emissions equalling entire nations of Spain or Poland.

Aiming an unprecedented growth of 800% in power generation through coal, the state is gambling with its people’s health and natural resources. The coal fired power plants generating this power are highly polluting and have received environmental clearances on flawed grounds through corporate muscle.

Luckily, all hope is not lost. Most projects have received approval but have not been built already. We need to turn up the pressure on the state and central Governments to revoke permissions and put a moratorium on any more coal plants in Andhra Pradesh.  

We need to demand that a cumulative environmental impact assessment be performed on all proposed plants while considering people’s concerns. And simultaneously large investments should be made into alternative energy solutions like wind, solar and many more to bridge any power deficits. "

Please sign this petition to support this movement against dirty coal.

      Coal poisons our air, water, and food. Coal is a primary contributor to global warming. Coal mining destroys natural forest and mountain habitats. It is far past time we transitioned away from coal and built a sustainable wind and solar energy infrastructure.
