He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
Dear Leaders of University Circle Institutions,
Did you or a representative of your institution attend the EPA public hearing on the Medical Center Company's request to renew their steam plant operating permit Tuesday evening August 10th at the MLK branch of the Cleveland Public Library?
If not, please view this video. You will want to hear the powerful testimony given by citizens who attended this meeting.
The citizens you serve (tax payers and your patrons and donors) would like to know your position on your use of energy from a highly polluting coal-burning steam plant. We would also like to know your position on MCCO's request to renew their operating permit. Please feel free to post your response on Realneo.
As a next step to the public hearing which took place on August 10th I believe we should open a dialog with those non-profits which get their power from MCCO. The following is a list (probably incomplete) of University Circle Institutions and their leaders who use MCCO power.
