Stop Construction of a Polluting and Useless Power Plant!

Got Asthma? Got Heart Disease? Got Dementia? Want some? No one does. Don't allow a natural gas power plant to be built near you, or us.
Please sign the petition to prevent a polluting gas power plant from being constructed close to my city block, in Philadelphia. 37,000 people, 12 schools, 3 university campuses, and several day care centers operate within one mile of the site.
SEPTA (Southeastern Transportation Authority) has applied to build this natural gas power plant, in a low income neighborhood, to generate electricity. However, SEPTA has absolutely no need for increased electrical power. PA is a fracking state. The natural gas industry and SEPTA struck a deal back in 2012. It's a health threat to us, and another investment in fossil fuel energy, and climate change. The natural gas process, from drill site, to pipeline, compressor stations, and gas plant, warms the global temperature more than other fossil fuels (oil and coal,) due to methane leaks.
Please sign this petition to Philadelphia's Mayor Kenney and local legislators, asking them to prevent SEPTA's gas plant from being constructed.
