Abilene rolls, strolls, and Fights Coal

ABILENE, Texas — Days ago, local residents of Abilene used the one of the most iconic symbols of environmentalism, the bicycle, to show their opposition to the coal-fired power plant proposed for construction. Residents young and old came out to show their opposition to the dirty coal plant attempting to set up shop in their backyards. The riders, donning brightly colored “Roll Beyond Coal” shirts, cruised through the trails in Nelson Park. Countless local citizens oppose the Tenaska plant and the harmful health and environmental effects it will inevitably produce. The ride was one of nine similar events throughout Texas in an attempt to spread awareness about the terrible effects of dirty coal.
