The mammoth, energy company called TXU plans to build 11 new pulverized-coal power plants in Texas. Texas is the nation’s largest carbon dioxide polluter and TXU’s plans will make this dramatically worse. The new plants would emit 78 million tons of CO2 pollution per year. Building these plants will undermine the efforts of all other states across the nation to reduce carbon emissions and fight global warming. More info here. Please sign the petition to stop the plants!
