Investigating problems and crafting solutions

Tackling air pollution in Colorado: Power plants represent America’s single biggest source of air pollution, affecting our waterways, destroying ecosystems, and polluting the air we breathe. Pollution from coal-fired power plants in particular contributes to four of the five leading causes of mortality in the United States: heart disease, cancer, stroke and chronic respiratory diseases. Our report, “Dirty Energy’s Assault on our Health: Mercury,” shines a spotlight on the health risks of mercury pollution and sets forth practical policy recommendations for cutting mercury emissions.
