Beyond Coal!

Ignition Green tabled at the Beyond Coal event cohosted by Sierra Club and Climate Action SA in San Antonio, Texas! We worked with 22 other organizations and discussed how to transition San Antonio to coal-free by 2030, including retiring San Antonio’s two current coal plants: Spruce 1 and Spruce 2.

Coal is one of the most dangerous fossil fuels because its combustion is extremely inefficient, meaning that relatively large amounts must be burnt to produce adequate energy. Additionally, coal combustion releases greenhouse gases (contributing to global warming) as well as toxic particulate matter, which contributes severely to air pollution.

Stay tuned for more Ignition Green adventures!
