"My hometown of Memphis, TN, is home to one of the more than 3,400 fossil fuel-fired power plants in the U.S. According to an article published by Scientific American, one additional death is predicted for every 4,434 tons of carbon dioxide emitted. With such dire public health risks, the Biden Administration must stop power plants from continuing this destructive pattern of ecological devastation that continues to sacrifice the health of our communities. All families deserve to breathe clean air, regardless of their zip code."
