Join the movement to quit coal

Across America, people are living in the shadow of the coal industry.

We have created Quit Coal Community Forums as a tool to help you organize in your community to fight coal and demand clean energy.

Once you’ve joined an existing Community Forum, you can connect with others who are interested in the same issues, learn more, and post news and resources.

 

 

Your story can educate a person, inspire others, spread a great idea, or help you connect with someone else standing up to the coal industry.

Your story is more powerful than you think and we want to hear it.

Colorado has some of the most potential for renewable energy in country. Yet, we continue to burn dirty coal for our electricity. It makes no sense at all. Everyday long lines of train cars loaded with coal make their way into the city of Denver. You can\'t miss them. The coal is either burned here or shipped off to other parts of the country. It\'s a dirty business. The long brown cloud of pollution that stretches along the front range serves as a reminder of our addiction to dirty energy. And here in Denver, the Cherokee coal plant (owned and operated by Xcel Energy) sticks out in the northern skyline like a mark of shame.Colorado is too beautiful to ruin by burning coal and the people here don\'t need to be getting sick when there is so much potential for renewable energy -- regardless of how much money some company from Minnesota stands to make for their shareholders by doing it.
