Summary: 

On Feb. 13, the Salt River Project, a Phoenix-based power company, announced that it would shut down a coal-fired power plant in three years. That’s 25 years earlier than the Navajo Nation anticipated. While environmentalists celebrate the closure, hundreds of Navajo people who rely on those jobs are devastated.
