NMA Response to NY Times Op Ed on Coal Leasing Program
The Sierra Club in concert with Michael Bloomberg today is publicizing further funding of the Club’s ongoing Beyond Coal campaign. NMA issued the following statement to the media nationwide. Please share this broadly with all audiences including through social media channels.
The letter explains the significant benefits to taxpayers and electricity ratepayers of the U.S. coal leasing program. It also attacks Hayes/Stock’s proposal, which equates to a regressive carbon tax that will harm all Americans, but particularly those with lower incomes and on fixed incomes
