If we no long had coal plants would we be a healthier nation?

    Pollution from coal plants has been linked to health problems ranging from childhood asthma, to heart attacks, to cancer. According to one study, coal-fired power plants are responsible for close to 24,000 premature deaths a year in the US. 2,800 of these deaths are from lung cancer resulting from coal plant pollution. Getting rid of the nation’s fleet of aging coal plants would be one of the most effective things we could do to clean up our air and contribute to a healthier population – especially in regions of the country where a lot of coal energy is produced.
