Through extreme weather and other phenomena, climate change is threatening our lives. One of the major causes of climate change is the large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by coal-fired power plants. In order to prevent climate change, the world is moving to phase out coal power.
In the midst of this, power company JERA Co., Inc. is building a new large-scale coal-fired power plant in Yokosuka, Japan. Once this power plant begins operation, it will emit not only CO2, but also large amounts of air pollutants and heated wastewater discharge, which will have significant negative impacts both locally and globally on the health of people and the environment.
Japan Beyond Coal & Kiko Network are collecting signatures to request that JERA stop the construction of the coal-fired power plant in Yokosuka. Join them!
