Coal Communities in South Africa Want Coal to Stop

Glen Tyler

South Africa wants to build another big coal plant.

This one is called Thamabetsi, and it should be built in Lephalale, Limpopo province, expanding thermal energy production, despite growing capacity for renewable energy production and a stalling demand.

About 3000 women and men, who are already facing the devastating effects of one coal-fired plant, live within walking distance of the newly proposed plant.

Residents of the area explain that no one thought of asking how they felt about the proposed project.
