The majority of Alberta's electricity is generated by coal fired plants. (Alberta Energy, 2012). The research is now clear that burning coal comes with substantial human health costs. In Alberta alone coal causes over 100 fatalities and more than 4,000 asthma symptom days every year. (Alberta Study). Come hear an internationally respected authority on the health impacts of coal speak to the realties and possibilities in Alberta. There will be presentations in both Edmonton (Sept. 29) and Calgary (Sept. 30).
