A major environmental group is launching a massive campaign to strangle the coal industry, push green energy sources and increase electricity prices for much of the country, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

TheDCNF obtained an internal Sierra Club Beyond Coal campaign document from an anonymous source. The document lays out the environmental group’s $120 million campaign to decommission 105,000 megawatts of U.S. coal-fired power, prevent more coal from being mined or exported and push for more green energy production…

Emails revealed by Energy and Environmental Law Institute attorney Chris Horner already show that the Sierra Club has coordinated with EPA officials in the past over coal plant regulations and also concerning the agency’s role in stymieing the Keystone XL pipeline.
