Protect My Family From Dirty Coal Pollution!

    1. Sponsored by

      Sierra Club

My name is Surita Hernandez and I live on the Moapa Band of Paiutes Indian Reservation with my husband and five children and the Reid Gardner coal plant is destroying the health of my family and tribe. The plant is only 500 yards from my backyard and creates a dark cloud that rains dirty coal pollution.

As a result, my entire family has been prescribed inhalers, nebulizers, and prescription medications to manage our respiratory conditions -- but when smoke from the smoke stacks blows over our house we have to stay indoors. I fear for the health of my kids and family.

The EPA is taking public comments about a plan to require Reid Gardner to install pollution controls that reduce dirty coal pollution but the proposal only recommends second-rate pollution control technology.

My family and our entire tribe testified at a recent hearing about the EPA's plan and called for the best pollution controls available to save our health and way of life. But without your help, the EPA may settle for their proposed second-rate solution.

Join my family and tribe and stand for clean air and a healthy future. Send a comment to the EPA and protect my family and tribe from dangerous coal pollution.

      The same day on the same street or the closest neighboring young man Devin Matlock was killed.He was also a very good person like the christian Lazukin family which was murdered. May be he has seen some thing so he was killed because of that. PLEASE HELP US TO GET THE JUSTICE THAT EACH ONE DESERVES> http://www.change.org/petitions/federal-bureau-of-investigation-fully-investigate-the-lazukin-massacre

      Also check out the news about Lazukin Family and the Devin Matlock .

      Police say the father is a person of interest but I know the man. His name is Nick Lazukin. He was a great man. They are christians! He would never kill his family!

      How could he kill them and then kill himself when he was found all bruised up...broken ankles every single finger broken and right arm broken all the way? Oh and his throat cut. Okay so there's no way he could of done that to himself. He would be able to shoot him self or kill his loving family so why call him the person of interest.
