Local Activism - #1
Excelsior Energy is planning to build new coal plants with so-called "clean coal technology." Named the Mesaba Energy Project, the federal government has already earmarked lots of dollars, and Governor Pawlenty has pledged to do the same from the Minnesota treasury. CAMP, Citizens Against the Mesaba Project, is the organization formed to stop the project on the grounds that the additional energy is not needed and that "clean" technology is anything but. What tactics does a small but dedicated group of activists use to stop such a juggernaut?
