Sierra Club To Protest Holcomb Coal Plant

KSCB News - September 29, 2009 12:00 am

The Sierra Club says it is planning

litigation against a Kansas electric utility as part of a national

campaign against coal-fired power plants.

The environmental group scheduled a news conference Tuesday

morning in Lawrence to announce the legal action. Spokeswoman

Stephanie Cole declined to discuss the details Monday.

The Sierra Club has designated Tuesday as a national “Day of

Action” against coal-fired plants.

Kansas relies heavily on coal-fired power plants despite a

growing push in recent years to develop wind farms. Federal figures

show that in June, about 68 percent of the electricity generated in

Kansas came from coal-fired plants.
