We may have front runners for next years "fossil fool." Seriously.
In the most ridiculous public testimony I've ever seen (which is really saying something), representatives from the University of Cincinnati and Kent State University today co-testified that their fracking gas fired plants should count as renewable energy, padding the pockets of publicly funded polluters and spiking demand for fracked gas in Ohio.
It's "just like solar," quipped UC Utilities Director Joe Harrell when questioned by a member of the Ohio State Energy and Public Utilities Committee why he thought his fossil fool based facility was renewable energy. "It captures heat."
Last week fifty University of Cincinnati students weren't stopped by nasty cold and rain to rally for a coal free campus.
We filled 400 white balloons full of 100% clean air. A coordinated flash mob made a giant wind turbine with the balloons right in front of the office of the president. This picture was taken from his office balcony.
