I've seem to notice that the majority of people with NO COAL PLANT signs in their yard appear to be in the upper tax bracket. Here is an ideal, take your money and move to la la land where power plants don't exist. Where the "blue color worker" is only a nasty make believe character that comes to life in story telling sessions by the camp fire.
We the make believe need this plant!
