Power Plants Opposed

The Dallas Morning News:
Dallas officially entered a fight against new coal-burning power plant construction in Texas, as the City Council unanimously voted Wednesday morning to join the Texas Cities for Clean Air Coalition and contribute $10,000 to a legal fund...

The mayor and other council members have argued that TXU Corp.'s plan to build 11 coal plants throughout Texas would lead to a further decline in the state's air quality. They have urged TXU - and several other companies that together plan to build six other coal-fired plants - to consider alternatives, including nuclear power.
