The Virginia DEQ is trying to approve a massive fracked gas power plant in an environmental justice community in Charles City County, VA. The addition of this power station would make the area the 5th largest gas emissions area in the United States! Take a look at the annual emissions and health impacts table we put together. No community needs these toxins in their air, especially at a time when solutions to climate change catastrophe are urgently needed. We need you all to help educate about the proposed Chickahominy Gas Power Station and see if you can show up to the hearing on Friday, June 21st at 10am.
