Bob Marshall Loves The Virginia Sierra Club
He proudly displays the Virginia Sierra Club endorsement on his website. Lets look at what the Sierra Club thinks about the Coalfields..Click the title to view the group that endorsed Bob Marshall.
The Sierra Club is planning lawsuits to halt construction of coal plants in seven states, arguing that the mercury-spewing plants violate the Clean Air Act. Noting that a federal appeals court ruled in February that the Bush administration's mercury regulations were too lax, the green group seeks to require the coal plants to get new state permits meeting tougher emissions standards. "We want to give moms across the country some peace of mind this Mother's Day," says Bruce Nilles of the Sierra Club. "That's why we're taking action ... to ensure that these coal plants make every effort to keep their toxic mercury pollution out of our communities."
I don't look for Bob Marshall to visit the coalfields anytime soon do you? Coal miners and their families don't need Bob Marshall around and that is for sure. Maybe Bob would like to come down and speak at Coal Heritage Days. Heh.
Bob Marshall is no Friend of Coal.
