Affordable
Energy 'Celebrate Coal!' Rally Today to Challenge Global Warming,
Anti-Energy Activists

Amid Onslaught
of Snow, Demonstrators To Highlight Human Consequences of Global Warming
Alarmism

Washington, DC,
March 2, 2009 - Navigating a heap of snow in Washington, D.C.
today, proponents of affordable energy will rally to Celebrate
Coal! and Keep Energy Affordable.  The demonstration, hosted by
the Competitive Enterprise Institute, will combat the nearby
anti-energy rally hosted by Capitol
Climate Action
.

“The goal of Celebrate Coal! is to publicize the colossal
benefits of coal-fired power and the need for access to affordable
energy," said Myron Ebell, CEI Director of Energy and Global
Warming Policy.  "If the anti-coal zealots are allowed to
prevail politically, electric rates will skyrocket for most Americans and many
jobs will be lost in energy-intensive industries as a result of higher power
prices."

"Raising energy costs kills," added CEI
Senior Fellow Iain Murray.  "According to a Johns Hopkins
study, replacing ¾ of US
coal-based energy with higher priced energy would lead to 150,000 extra
premature deaths annually in the US
alone."

When:         1:00 -3:00 p.m.
ET, Monday, March 2nd.
Where:        Washington, D.C.
- E Street, S. E., between South
Capitol Street and New
Jersey            
Avenue, S. E.

Metro: Capitol South on the Orange and Blue Lines. From the Metro Station
exit at C Street and First Street, S. E., walk two blocks south on First Street
(away from the House Office Buildings and Capitol), then turn right on to E
Street, S. E. and walk one block west, then cross New Jersey Ave, S. E. 
The rally will be on the south side or the north side of the street. 
Note: The District of Columbia Metropolitan Police have also been notified that
the rally will be held on the north side of E Street if the Capitol Police deny
the permit.  The anti-coal protest group, Capitol Climate Action, has
apparently not applied for a permit to protest around the Capitol Power Plant.
