About: Coal-Fueled Plant Closes; A Crisis For Native American Workers | NBC News
We know that not all coal fire plants will be permanently close, this should be one of them. The economic collapse of the area and on the Native people will be devastating.
Go union OMG.... There's trades out there..... UA engineer electrical engineer labor boilermakers iss
Glad the power plant is going away...now we just need music to bring back the whole arizona community
To replace th lost generation, Arizona would do well to build a pair of AP1000s.
God bless amen 🙏🏻.
SURPRISE, Trump lied to you!!! Since Trumpy's announcement on coal, over 75 coal plants in U.S. have announced closure, which is a faster pace than all 8 years of Obama. Time to re-train and move on.
time to change coal is dead finally
Well tbh if they're earning $100k then they should be able to save a lot. You save money (no matter what job you do) so that you are ready for any unexpected job losses. It's common sense really. 🙄.
Every single Coal plant that closes will result in nation wide "Black Outs".
If it's small enough it can be replaced with a solar plant.
Stone & Webster Engineering firm designed those scrubbers and cleaned things up a lot. It was phenomenal technology back in the 90's to make coal much cleaner. Way cleaner than prior to the 90's. We have technology NOW, that could enable every single household in America 100% energy efficient and self generating off grid. Will they do it, he'll no!
Nothing is cheaper than coal it's 4 cents a kilowatt hour compared to 26 cents an hour for wind and 20 cents for solar. Obama threw so many regulations on coal that killed coal. Global foot print on environment world wide is .02 percent. China and so many other smart country's use these exclusively without next to no environmental regulations.
It hasn't closed yet, it needs to close asap..it's sure not a crises for us Navajo people, we don't benefit from it, all the power is strung out to California Nevada and phoenix
This plant just needs scrubbers installed on the emissions and continue its established infrastructure. Keep coal moving!
Solar energy can replace this, as well as wind mills.
The coal ash plants are polluting our water. There is no clean coal. 5 people on my cal de sac have been diagnosed with cancer because of these coal ash lagoons seaping into ground water.
The Navajo live in a big place but I know they would listen to other Navajo talk about uranium. I wish the AZ governor, a utilities governor, would bite the hands that feed him and take a personal interest in how the generators there needn't be wasted. Can't he make some buzz on his own? This seems a rediculous situation.
Those who wait for coal jobs to return, will (mostly) wait in wain, in America as well as Europe. the price per electric energy (in kWh) will fall faster for wind and solar and such technologies than coal will. Eventually coal becomes too expensive an increasing amount of places for an increasing amount of hours each year.
Do you remember the black smoke coming off of train locomotives, in the old western movies?
In STINGA TECH Inc. we have invented a reactor that burns coal with %97 efficiency without polluting the air.
Our Technology has a US patent and ready to be used. We are burning coal with close to zero emission.
