- Why ? To raise public awareness regarding to coal plants in Korea! The air pollution getting worse which is similar level to the cities notorious for bad atmosphere. However, the government and mess media are giving wrong information of the reasons of air pollution that the situations mostly caused by other countries. It is true that the air pollutant from other countries counts for about 20%, but people are misled to blame everything on other countries. According to a recent research of Korean atmosphere by Seoul National University, coal plant accounts for 40% of the air pollution. However, it is hard to find any media mentions coal plants in terms of air pollution even president candidates only promises to reduce nuclear plants not coal ones. In Korea, more than 70 % electricity are used by companies and factories and they are against raising up the fee, which is ridiculously cheap, therefore encouraging people to divest and doing public awareness about this issue would be bottom- up solution.
