Coal is the single largest source of human-caused global greenhouse gas emissions and the U.S. is the world’s second largest coal producer. Coal-fired energy generation damages cardiovascular and respiratory health and threatens healthy child development. To protect our climate and public health, we must decrease our country’s reliance on coal and challenge the powerful coal industry while building demand for a clean energy economy.

In the 21st century we should not be using this dangerous and outdated technology to power our homes, schools, hospitals and businesses. Coal mining, burning, and storage all carry significant risks to public health and to the climate. No bank or power utility should invest even one more dollar in coal.

Perhaps the most horrific form of coal mining is mountaintop removal (MTR), which obliterates mountains and poisons communities in Appalachia. In 2013, Barclays bank was the #1 financier of MTR coal worldwide. Demand that Barclays stop funding MTR.
