Environmental Regulation At The Four Corners Power Plant

Credit San Juan Citizens Alliance

The Four Corners Power Plant and Navajo Mine were recently evaluated in a Draft Environmental Impact Statement that has raised more questions about the environmental, socioeconomic, and health issues related to the coal-fired power plant and how it affects nearby populations, especially the Diné. Pandora's Box host Lyn Patrick talks with Sylvia Clahchischilli and Colleen Cooley from Diné CARE, an all-Navajo environmental organization based within the Navajo homeland, about the health impacts from air pollution coming from the Four Corners Power Plant and Navajo Mine, and discuss how citizens can get involved in commenting on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.
