In the 21st century we should not be using this dangerous and outdated technology to power our homes, schools, hospitals and businesses. Coal mining, burning, and storage all carry significant risks to public health and to the climate. No bank or power utility should invest even one more dollar in coal. Take action today.
Bank of America is the biggest underwriter of coal in the US. This is unacceptable. A new BoA should fund a healthy future, not more dirty coal projects that continue to harm the health of communities across the country. Take action today.
