Greenpeace joins activists from communities impacted by mountaintop removal coal mining to block and "rebrand" a coal train with Apple logos. The coal train is en route to the Marshall Steam Station, a Duke Energy coal-fired power plant. Only 19 miles from Apple's Maiden, N.C., data center, currently under construction, the electricity created by burning mountaintop removal mined coal will be part of the Duke Energy fleet that will power the data center. The Marshall plant burns coal from mountaintop removal, a destructive practice whereby the tops of mountains are blown off to retrieve coal with the debris scraped into adjacent valleys. Air pollution from the Marshall plant causes more than one hundred deaths a year and thousands of asthma attacks. Apple should be more transparent about its coal problem, and take steps to start solving it, as are other tech companies who are taking steps to power their electronic data centers substantially with renewable energy.
