Things are really heating up on the ground across the Midwest. Earlier this week, Joe and Nick (Power Shift organizers in Michigan) shared their stories from recent actions they've taken on the ground. They followed Rep. Fred Upton throughout his district "listening tour" and even stormed City Hall to tell their elected officials Michigonians cannot be bought.
Now, we're getting more great news out of Ohio: Ohio University has announced it will move beyond coal by the year 2016. The university is currently considering options for a new heating plant as an energy source to power the campus. OU currently uses coal powered plants to heat all of it's buildings, but the plants are quickly reaching the end of their useful lives, in addition lacking modern pollution controls.
