“PEPCOAL” gets anti-MTR flash mob
PEPCO got a “Flash Mob” protest against their continuing use of mountaintop removal coal and refusal to address climate change of September 24. Activists from Rising Tide DC and Apalachia Rising collaborated on this action.
PEPCO, DC’s electrical utility, is notorious for bad service and ever-rising rates. The climate change and violent storms coal use fuels has now contributed to unreliab More..le service, yet PEPCO, or PEPCOAL as some now call them, continue to demand rate hikes. Meanwhile, they continue to buy electricity generated using the very worst form of coal-that mined by blasting away entire mountains and mountain communities in West Virginia and elsewhere.
