Ohio is becoming a dumping ground for fracking waste, and we’re already seeing this waste ending up in our streams. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is failing to ensure the safety of Ohio’s citizens and environment; it’s time for the US EPA to step in.
Under Ohio’s current proposed budget, half of the revenue from fracking in state parks would go to the Clean Ohio Fund - which exists to fund cleanups in Ohio. This funding structure guarantees a net loss for Ohio’s environment by funding cleanups by making a bigger mess, in our state parks.
Tell Your Senator right now that the path to a Clean Ohio is not through dirty fracking in our state parks!
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.
DAVIS-BESSE RELICENSING BAD FOR OHIO!!
December 1st, 2010
The Davis-Besse nuclear plant located on Lake Erie is up for their license renewal. Lets make our voices heard and speak out against this dirty, unsafe, and expensive nuclear plant. This plant has had numerous operation and safety violations during its existence that have been well documented. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission since 1979 two of the top five most dangerous nuclear incidences in the United States have happened at the Davis-Besse plant. First Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission allowed a delay in the inspection of the reactor head with an enormous rust hole almost spurring a nuclear disaster in 2002. First Energy is asking for another extension giving the plant operation rights for 20 more years past 2017. Read our nuclear committee chair Pat Marida’s public comments on the proposed relicensing here Davis Besse Relicensing 11-10-1 and to learn more Ohio’s Nuclear Threats 12-10.
