Sierra Club, Alliant Helping Clean Wisconsin's Dirty Air

It's been a rough year for clean air in Wisconsin, so hats off to Alliant Energy and The Sierra Club for working towards a settlement with the EPA that will help scrub more coal pollution from the air we all breathe.

Alliant Energy Corp. of Madison will shut down a coal-fired power plant in southwestern Wisconsin while adding pollution controls to a plant in Sheboygan to keep it running, the company announced Friday.

The company announced a $1.4 billion strategy for the power plants owned by its Madison utility, Wisconsin Power & Light Co., that will see the utility rely more on natural gas to generate electricity than it does today...
The Sierra Club was instrumental in getting the stinky Charter St. coal-fired plant shut down in Madison as well.
