Say "NO" to Coal in South Carolina sign now

We, the undersigned, are opposed to the coal plant proposed by Santee Cooper in southern Florence County, near Pamplico.

Coal fired plants such as the one proposed by Santee Cooper are a leading source of pollution in the United States, including mercury, particulate matter, and carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Mercury emissions already pollute our rivers and poison the people that fish them. Particulate matter has been linked with lung and heart disorders.

As the states public service authority, Santee Cooper has the responsibility to safeguard the citizens of our state while serving the energy requirements of its customers. Santee Cooper has not publicly demonstrated the need for the proposed coal plant, nor has it publicly demonstrated that it has thoroughly evaluated its impacts and costs.

The coal plant proposed by Santee Cooper will endanger our health, damage our environment and pose unnecessary risks to the economy of South Carolina.

There are cleaner, safer and cheaper alternatives available, including improved efficiency and expanded use of renewable energy. We request that Santee Cooper abandon its plans to construct this plant. We also urge our state government representatives to exercise their authority over this state agency and halt its efforts to build this plant.

We ask you to say no to dirty coal. Please stop plans to build this coal plant in our state.
