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.
Ohio permits 400th Fracking Well!
September 19th, 2012
Sadly, Ohio will permit its 400th fracking well this week. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has been permitting new fracking wells at a rate of 1 per day. Many of these new wells are located around our state parks, forest, and wildlife areas. Already several wells have been abandoned or left inactive. Search the ohio frack map to find a frack site near you.
