Coal Moratorium: A New Economy for Ohio
Burning coal creates all kind of problems, according to the Cincinnati chapter of the League of Women Voters and the Sierra Club. The League of Women Voters of the U.S. has called for a coal moratorium – a ten-year freeze on the construction of new coal-fired power plants.
What does this mean for Ohio, where 90% of electricity comes from coal, and where the decline of manufacturing has already caused great economic hardship?
Find out how a coal moratorium, coupled with energy efficiency and an aggressive green jobs campaign, will enable Ohio to lead the nation in its transition to clean energy.
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area on April 29, 7 – 8:30 p.m. with guest speaker, Nachy Kanfer,National Coal Campaign representative in Ohio for the Sierra Club. Q&A after the presentation.
Hosted by Mt. Auburn Presbyterian Church (in the Social Hall, 103 William Howard Taft Rd., 45219.) Free and open to the public.
