In order for all of us to hold our utilities accountable for their sustainable development goals (SDGs) and carbon emissions targets, we need to track what is the core to these goals, which is the retirement of coal power plants. I’ve put together a map of coal power plants in the US to help you find who owns each plant and what ones are in your local area.
Before we get into the reality of our universe, I thought our goal was always to leave the planet in a better spot than when we left it.
First, the concept surrounding our kids. We want our kids to experience a better life than we did growing up. This has historically always been quantified solely by money:
“If I’m wealthy enough, my kids can grow up in a better situation than I grew up in.”
If you’re solving by money then you are doing it wrong. We need to leave the planet in a better place for all of our children in all regards.
Without a planet, what’s left?
One thing that’s for certain is that the health and environmental considerations of coal power plants are counterproductive to that story.
Let’s make it a point to know of every single coal power plant to hold all utility companies accountable for the retirement of a counterproductive form of power.
I’ve compiled a map of every single coal power plan in the United States, including a 20-kilometer radius of each plant so you can understand your health risks if you do live by one.
