Coal Closure Propaganda in Michigan
Critics are calling the website Citizens of Michigan’s Energy Future misleading, as it features a clock counting down to the last seconds until the last group of coal plants are scheduled to be shut down. Their television ads follow a similar theme. These “scare tactics” are being used to push utility-backed legislation in Michigan, according to Midwest Energy News. Regardless, the staff at the Michigan Public Service Commission reported this summer “there is not likely to be a shortfall” in coal production this year.
