Peabody Energy and the Navajo Nation are planning a trip to China to sell Navajo coal! The meeting is today in Flagstaff.
News reporter Kathy Helms, Gallup Independent, exposes the Navajo Nation's secret agenda with Peabody Coal and China, and rebooting the dirty coal Desert Rock plan on Navajoland in New Mexico.

"So they planned a trip to China to look at the GreenGen facility 'because Peabody is actually a stakeholder in that project ... and also talk to their engineers and their scientists and their researchers. President Shelly has been saying that we want to start Desert Rock, and that was the whole reason for this trip back in 2011,' Woods said. But with much of their time consumed by Navajo Generating Station lease discussions and BHP Billiton Navajo Mine negotiations, the Desert Rock/sequestration joint-venture projects by the Navajo Nation and Sithe Global fell by the wayside. With some of those activities winding down, Woods said they are resuming talks ..."
