Transportation

As energy prices remain high and our state’s economy continues to sag, Ohio needs clean, green, and economically viable transportation options more than ever. Our state is the fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and the transportation sector produces about one-third of this pollution. Forced reliance on the automobile puts greater financial stress on Ohio families, increases oil dependence, damages the environment, harms public health, and limits the mobility of citizens, particularly seniors, students, the disadvantaged, and the disabled. Meanwhile, Ohio spends less than 1% of its transportation dollars on public transit. Visit our Transportation Committee page to learn more about our efforts and how to get involved.

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.   Read More
