Stop the White Stallion coal plant

    1. Petition by

      No Coal Coalition

A coal/pet coke plant is proposed for Bay City, TX in Matagorda County.

The plant is to be located on the Colorado River, just a few miles upriver from the Matagorda Bay system and Gulf of Mexico. The plant is permitted to spew 18,000 tons of emissions per year -- including mercury, arsenic, selenium, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and many other toxic pollutants. It is also permitted to use 36,000 acre feet of fresh water per year, 80% of which is evaporated.

The plant is a direct threat to the health and fragile ecosystem of the area and its people, and will negatively impact the area's agriculture and fishing industries. Stop the construction of the White Stallion coal plant.

      " It's time for change" like Obama said, and we should start by changing the way we produce; energy, coal, and oil. We humans have advance so far from when our founding fathers found the land. I'm aware of the people who are invested in these companies, and that these companies help with employment. However, I myself believe that our country can produce what we need with less consequences than the larger ones we are creating ahead. I know many of us want to change the situation right now, but it's going to take a while and we shouldn't get frustrated, but be patient and in hope that we will suceed. This is our planet; the place we call home, and I like many others want the best for the people of tomorrow.
