Keep Radioactive Fracking Waste out of Ohio’s Landfills
The fracking industry has a problem – it generates toxic, radioactive waste in the forms of mud from drilling, and liquid from the chemical cocktails used to get fossil fuels from deep underground – and they don’t know where to put it.
95% of Carroll depends on groundwater and yet, over the next ten years, ODNR will allow 2,000 unconventional gas wells and permit an underground coal mine without informing the public about potential impacts on water quality.
Help Shape Ohio’s Transportation Network!
October 20th, 2010
The Ohio Department of Transportation is hosting interactive workshops to gather ideas for Ohio’s public transportation future. The first workshop will be on Monday October 25 at 5:30pm in Columbus. Other workshops include Cincinnati-Oct. 26, Bowling Green-Oct. 27, Portsmouth-Oct. 28, Cleveland-Nov. 3, Youngstown-Nov. 4, Cambridge-Nov. 9, and Athens-Nov. 10 all starting at 5:30pm. Public transportation will play a critical role in helping reduce our emissions, reduce traffic congestion on our roadways, and will create jobs putting Ohioans back to work. Ridership rates have increased with few options available to move people. Ohio is ranked 12th in the nation for transit ridership rates with 7 major metropolitan areas–all with public transit systems to move people. The workshop will attempt to answer what Ohio’s future transportation system will look like by engaging audience members in discussion. Other goals of the workshop will be to answer where our transportation system should go, and also which investments will keep and bring in new jobs to Ohio as well. Please come out to share your thoughts and ideas to help make Ohio a more viable and competitive state, while building an efficient and effective transportation network!
