Pollution from Chicago's Fisk and Crawford coal-fired power plants prematurely kills 42 people every year (http://www.catf.us/coal/problems/power_plants/existing/map.php?state=Illinois). That human cost is paid primarily by the communities who live in the shadows of these two aging plants. You won’t find it on Edison International’s bottom-line.
But Chicagoans are fighting back. Edison International is an international company and is part of a broader industry that affects all of us. They need to hear the message from you, too.
Tell Edison International CEO Ted Craver to shut down the Crawford plant by 2013. International: Shut down this plant and quit coal.

Shut down the Crawford Generating Station.
For years, your subsidiary, Midwest Generation, has operated old, dirty coal-fired power plants in the city of Chicago. The Crawford plant is responsible for an unacceptable amount of hardship on the local community.
I'm writing to let you know that I support the thousands of Chicago residents who are standing up to you and fighting for clean air and healthy communities. Your short-term profit is not worth human lives.
Shut down the Crawford plant by 2013. The whole country is watching.
