Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

The residents of Salem, MA say that the coal-fired plant owned by PG&E has elevated cancer rates in their community by contaminating the air and drinking water. Coal is a central feature of of the Bush administration’s new energy policy, which would throw billions of dollars into building new coal-fired power plants across the country and exempt many older plants from meeting federal emissions standards. The Senate will take up the Bush plan in the coming weeks. We speak with Lori Ehrlich, a leader of HealthLink based in Salem, MA, and Kert Davies, director of Greenpeace’s US Global Warming Campaign.
