Chicago wants to be the greenest, healthiest city in America, but two old dirty coal-fired power plants in the city continue to pump soot and global warming gases into our air.
Cutting soot pollution will reduce asthma attacks, chronic bronchitis, heart attacks, lung cancer and strokes caused by particulate matter pollution. The young, the elderly and those living closest to the plants are most at risk. Reducing global warming pollution will significantly cut Chicago's carbon footprint - keeping Chicago in the running for the 'Greenest City in America.'

Mayor Daley and Aldermen: Clean Up the Power Plants Now!
We the undersigned, urge Mayor Daley and the City Council to adopt a Clean Power Ordinance that cleans up the two largest sources of air pollution in Chicago - the Fisk and Crawford power plants.
The Chicago Clean Power Campaign petition to Chicago City Hall was written by Chicago Clean Power Coalition and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
