Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
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.
Ohio Sierra Club Releases National Report on U.S. Oil Dependence!
June 2nd, 2010
The Ohio Sierra Club, in partnership with the American Security Project, released a report, “Ending Our Dependence on Oil” later this week that examined the link between global climate change and our nation’s security. Right now, the BP oil spill – the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history – continues to unfold in the Gulf Coast with no end in sight. This catastrophe is the epitome of what’s wrong with our national energy policy and a clarion call for taking action now to cut our oil dependence. By building a cleaner, more efficient transportation system we will protect the environment, begin to revitalize our economy, and strengthen our nation’s security. Through cleaner vehicles and a more convenient, sustainable system we can reduce our dependence on oil, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and put Americans back to work building clean transportation infrastructure.
