Sierra Club schedules a news conference today to spread the alarm about the proposed coal-burning power plant in SW Arkansas written about last week by Ernie Dumas. Says Glen Hooks of the Sierra Club:
"Our nation needs energy, but there are much better ways to generate that energy. Coal is the single dirtiest energy producing option we have. It's time that Arkansas, and our nation, put coal aside and focused on clean, renewable sources of energy."
