Activist group creates hoax Peabody website

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- An activist group called ‘Coal is Killing Kids’ has poked fun at the St. Louis-based Peabody Energy.

Members from the group launched a fake website that appears to be sponsored by Peabody called “Coal Cares.”

The purpose of the site, which supposedly offers free cartoon character inhalers to children living near coal-fired power plants, is to mock Peabody’s resistance to federal pollution reforms and government-mandated cleanups.
