Shut Down Brayton Point and Mt Tom coal plants by 2020.


Since 1951, the Salem Harbor Station has been responsible for hundreds of premature deaths, heart attacks, and asthma attacks every year. But a new day has dawned in Salem. The Salem Harbor coal plant will be ceasing all operations by 2014.

Unfortunately, Somerset and Holyoke are still living with the toxic legacy of coal plants in their communities. Now is the time to move forward toward a Coal Free Future. The residents of Massachusetts have a fundamental right to breathe clean air. Tell Governor Patrick to do everything in his power to make sure that the Brayton Point and Mt Tom coal plants close by 2020.
