End dirty coal power on our campus

    1. Sponsored by

      Sierra Student Coalition

Coal is one of the most dangerous and dirty energy sources today, not just because it pollutes people’s communities from mining to burning to disposing of the waste, or because it is the leading contributor to global warming, but because coal is holding us back from bringing about a clean, secure energy future.  

The University of Kentucky needs to take the lead and act now to move beyond coal.  We have an opportunity to shape our future-- to create clean energy jobs, breathe clean air, and solve the climate challenge—but we need to act now.  

I want to see UK be a leader by retiring/transitioning our old, dirty coal plant –or-  transitioning off the coal we purchase by reducing our energy use and switching to 100% clean energy.
