From Pilsen to Copenhagen

Long scored for serious health impacts on residents of Pilsen and Little Village, Chicago’s two coal-fired power plants have also emerged as the city’s most prominent sources of carbon emissions and climate change.

On Saturday, Octobert 24 at 1 p.m., as part of a worldwide day of action on climate change, local groups will march on the Fisk power plant, 1111 W. Cermak, one of two plants operated by Midwest Generation in Chicago.

As President Obama prepares for a major international climate conference in Copenhagen next month, “We want him to see that people are marching in the streets of his home town asking for him to be a leader in the fight against climate change,” said Nicole Granacki of Greenpeace.
