    The single largest contributor to global warming, on both the national and international level, is the burning of coal for electricity generation and industry.  Coal is the dirtiest-burning fossil fuel in the world, and is responsible for 40% of US global warming emissions.  Thus, shutting down coal plants and replacing them with clean, renewable energy is the single most effective thing we can do to fight global warming.  The Sierra Club has compiled a list of about 600 coal plants across the country, cited in one of the links below.  You can use the site to find out what coal plant is closest to you, and get involved in local efforts to reduce your region’s reliance on coal.
