Coal Plant Pops Up in Bellevue Downtown Park

August 15, 2014



BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 15 -- The Sierra Club issued the following news release:

East King County has a message about climate change, and it comes with free ice cream. On Sunday, August 17, Bellevue City Councilmember Lynne Robinson will headline an afternoon of free local live music, entertainment and ice cream. It's all in the name of supporting Governor Jay Inslee's efforts to make Washington state a climate-friendly, coal-free state powered with local clean energy jobs. Special guests include the Sierra Club's giant inflatable coal plant, which will help the club kick off an elevated phase of its campaign to help Puget Sound Energy transition away from coal to clean energy. Currently, Washington's PSE customers receive approximately 30 percent of their electricity from the Colstrip coal-fired power plant in Montana.
