Bailing out polluting, unprofitable coal plants will mean Americans will pay more for electricity, and many communities will also pay in lost jobs and worse health. This has nothing to do with national security and everything to do with special-interests getting their way in Washington. The market is delivering cheaper and cleaner energy, because that’s what Americans want – but instead, the administration is trying to force us to accept dirty and expensive coal.
The groups fighting this policy span the political spectrum – from health and environmental advocates to free market conservatives and attorneys general – and Bloomberg Philanthropies will help lead the charge.
