Faced with the public health threat of coal-fired power plants, the Clean Air Alliance mobilized citizens to fight for better air quality in Ontario, Canada by phasing out these plants. When the local medical establishment estimated the public health cost to include 1,500 deaths each year from pollutants, concerned government leaders decided to act. The final stacks fell in April of 2014, making Ontario the first jurisdiction in the world to cut out dirty coal in order to achieve public health and environmental goals. While the effort took more than a decade, the result is the single largest greenhouse gas reduction in North America - the equivalent of removing 7 million cars from the road.
