-fired power plants are the biggest sources of global warming pollution in the United States. Right now, utilities are proposing the construction of more than 150 coal-fired power plants. If built, these plants would increase U.S. global warming pollution by 25 percent. They would also create other types of pollution
, notably mercury.
The Wall Street Seven, a group of banks including JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, and Morgan Stanley, are the major funders for the new plants.
Please send a letter calling on these banks to end their support for proposed coal plants and to help finance clean, renewable energy instead.
