Just Ouside Chicago, A Major Polluter Lurks - Chicago Tribune

Have you ever driven over the "Skyway" bridge down through Indiana? If you have, you might have seen this coal burning power plant that provides some of our electricity here in Chicago. The article from the Chicago Tribune discusses how this power plant pollutes our air and kills millions of fish in Lake Michigan.

Indiana's State Line coal burning power plant, one of the nation's dirtiest power plants, hangs on despite environmental dangers

What do you think about this source of electricity for Chicago? Why do people protest at the coal burning plants in Pilsen and Little Village? Should people protest this State Line plant? If the plant were shut down, where would we get that part of our electricity from? 


Protests in Little Village and Pilsen

How can shutting down a dirty coal plant create "green jobs?"
