Last week’s shutdown of the San Juan coal-fired generating station in Farmington, New Mexico might have been cause for celebration by environmentalists and others who contend the plant merely polluted the atmosphere.
However, the shutdown did a few other things. It put hundreds out of work and harmed the nearby Navajo community where families who lost coal jobs were forced to move elsewhere in search of work, school enrollments dropped and school district revenue plunged.
It’s the by-product of the Biden administration’s pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 reported the Associated Press.
