We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
Help Ohioans for Humane Farms With Ballot Issue Signature Collection
March 10th, 2010
The campaign has started! Ohioans for Humane Farms needs 600,000 signatures to get a measure on the Ohio November ballot. This initiative will end extreme confinement of livestock in tiny cages, stop downer cows from entering the human food chain, and stop inhumane methods of euthanasia.
Caging animals in high densities leads to animal waste and consequent water pollution. Crowding also leads to a greater risk of disease transmission, which requires antibiotic treatment. Antibiotic resistant bacteria is not only spreading in hospitals, but also throughout our communities.
That’s not all. It’s an injustice for families who live near animal factories to suffer from air pollution, fly infestation, odors, and polluted runoff into their drinking water sources.
Volunteers are needed to help with signature collection today!
