Protect the Grand Canyon from Dangerous Coal Pollution

Target: Environmental Protection Agency
Goal: Clean-up coal plant located only 12 miles from Grand Canyon.

Some of the most spectacular views of nature anywhere on the planet can be experienced at Grand Canyon National Park, carved over tens of millions of years by the Colorado River. Millions of people from around the world make the trek to the park each year to experience this stunning natural American icon.

But for decades, visitors have also suffered obscured views instead of crystal clear vistas, due to industrial haze from coal pollution emitted by the largest coal-fired power plant in the West — which is less than 12 miles from the park!

Fortunately, the EPA is taking public comments right now on how to clean up the dangers coal pollution from the Navajo Generating Station (NGS). But the powerful coal lobby is pushing EPA to delay clean up and to approve a weakened plan that will deny the progress our great national park has needed for decades.

Show the EPA that America supports holding polluters accountable by requiring NGS to install strong industry-standard pollution controls. Send a comment now to protect the Grand Canyon against dirty coal pollution.

    This is the Grand Canyon. It has taken millions of years to become what it is. Are we going to allow a few hundred years to destroy this precious wonder?
