BLACK MESA, Arizona -- The top global carbon emitters have been identified. It comes as no surprise that Peabody Energy is number 10 on the global list, poisoning the planet.
Peabody continues to poison the Navajo and Hopi homelands in the Southwest. The coal ripped from Black Mesa fuels the Navajo Generating Station on the Navajo Nation. The coal-fired power plant poisons Navajos, Hopis and others in the Southwest so that the cities of Phoenix and Tucson can squander electricity and the water that the electricity moves through the state. This was made possible by way of corrupt Arizona Congressmen, corrupt attorneys, corrupt Navajo politicians and the failed media that chooses to tap dance to advertisers and politicians rather than report the truth.
