The War on Coal
Ward County Farm Bureau is sponsoring “The War on Coal” seminar at the KMOT Ag Expo, January 27 and 28 at 2 p.m. both days, according to Ward County Farm Bureau Vice President Chad Rubbelke. The seminar will be held in the All Seasons Arena on the North Dakota State Fair grounds.
“The lignite coal industry is important to our state,” Rubbelke said. “But the Environmental Protection Agency has issued its Clean Power Plan that will seriously hamper our coal industry,” Rubbelke said. “Ward County Farm Bureau is proud to have Bruce Carlson, Verendrye Electric Cooperative Manager discussing the impacts and implications the EPA plan will have on our rural and urban communities.”
Rubbelke said 79 percent of North Dakota’s electrical generation comes from coal and we have the cleanest power plants in the world. “Bruce’s knowledge and dedication to presenting the facts about this topic will give people the whole story behind the coal issue. It’s worth knowing.”
Rubbelke said representatives from Farm Bureau will also be on hand to answer questions about the organization’s position as well as its approach to solving the issue.
The event is free and open to the public.
