Thanks Norm for contacting Sierra coal fossil energy team

This is an important civic and local air quality health issue.   

The Sierra Club has picked up on Realneo and the Case University MCCO coal fired facility here on the internet.  There is also a link on the right hand column on the main Sierra Club Beyond Coal page here.

I'll be there tomorrow.


We have Patricia Blochowiak, M.D. to thank

We have Patricia Blochowiak, M.D. to thank - I believe she contacted the Sierra Club - I first learned about their Campuses Beyond Coal campaign on realNEO from Bill McDermott here: "UNC to Stop Burning Coal: First Victory for Sierra Club Campaign" - so this is definitely a diverse community effort.

See you tomorrow.

Social Justice Red Flag

CWRU's plans to move dirty coal to East Cleveland from main campus location should raise a red flag in the African-American community.   I wish I could attend tomorrow.  This will get the national attention it deserves. 

East Cleveland can not be the toxic epicenter for NEO.  Rise up people.
