For too long, the coal industry has polluted our precious Great Lakes and waterways. As stewards of 1/5 of the world’s fresh water, we can’t afford to allow coal plants to continue toxic chemical dumping.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed long-overdue power plant pollution standards to limit the amount of toxic metals and other chemicals that can be dumped in our water. Unfortunately the coal industry is already trying to block them.
Electric vehicles are the future of the automobile industry and a key to innovative leadership in 21st-century technology and manufacturing. Our state pioneered the auto industry and now we stand in the vanguard of its future.
The hydraulic fracturing process takes millions of gallons of fresh water from Michigan aquifers and mixes it with a dangerous blend of toxic chemicals including known carcinogens and neurotoxins. The chemical cocktail is injected deep into the ground under extreme pressure, blowing apart shale rock and releasing trapped natural gas.
