Sierra Club attorney Bruce Nilles is a wicked person. I’m not sure wicked is the ideal adjective for the harmful actions of a shrewd mind that has been dangerously misguided, but it strikes me as more appropriate than not. This demonization of coal is predicated on the scientifically false belief that carbon dioxide has the potential to create catastrophic environmental damage.
A season to fight coal: In the last four years, local Sierra Club attorney Bruce Nilles has stopped 58 coal-fired plants from being built in the United States. … He is in the process of fighting 54 more coal-burning plants in America.
It all comes down to global warming and there is a lack of federal action on the issue, Nilles said Thursday from the Sierra Club's local office on the eighth floor of 122 W. Washington Ave., just off of the Capitol Square. "These coal plants are preventing us from stopping the acceleration of global warming and instead investing in clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar," Nilles said.
