About this Roadshow Webinar
Across the country, Greenpeace is working with local grassroots organizations to help shut down coal-fired power plants that are impacting the health and well-being of communities and the environment.
On Tuesday, November 13, 2012, Greenpeace Coal Campaigners Gabe Wisniewski and Kelly Mitchell led a thought-provoking interactive discussion about the coal industry, the need for a clean energy future and the work that Greenpeace is doing to help communities in the U.S. Quit Coal.
You can also watch an excerpt of Greenpeace’s Kelly Mitchell talking about the environmental threat posed by coal exports on The War Room with Jennifer Granholm.
About our Campaigners

Prior to his current role as Coal Campaign Director, he helped develop and implement Greenpeace’s climate campaign as a campaigner. As Coal Campaign Director, he is heading up Greenpeace’s efforts to shut down 150 of America’s dirtiest coal-fired power plants in the coming years.
