Saturday: Information session on Senate Bill 310 and Ohio's clean energy future

Of recent legislative efforts to turn back Ohio's clean energy standards, Senate Bill 310 poses the most serious threat, according to the Ohio Environmental Council. The bill is reportedly being fast-tracked for passage before June.

From 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, the OEC is holding an information session at the Grandview Heights Public Library, 1685 W. 1st Avenue about the negative impacts of SB 310 and what Ohioans can do to stop it.

Green energy advocates and faith leaders are warning that SB 310 would put an end to Ohio's clean energy standards and green collar jobs.

Media Matters for America noted that Ohio's major newspapers have overlooked the fact that SB 310 is backed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which "includes fossil energy powerhouses such as Koch Industries, Energy Future Holdings, Peabody Energy, and ExxonMobil."

"We can still keep global warming below the danger-threshold of 2 degrees C compared to pre-industrial levels, if we make bold and quick decisions towards deeper and faster cuts in emissions," said Interfaith Power and Light in a statement released this week, citing a United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.
