The war on coal: spotlight on Ohio
Almost three-quarters of Ohioans say shutting more coal plants is a bad idea.
The War on Coal continues. As President Obama and Mitt Romney are campaigning, the EPA continues to wage a war on the affordable, reliable electricity that America needs. In their campaigns, both candidates have put their focus on the swing state of Ohio, home to dozens of companies and thousands of employees who work to power the country using coal-based electricity.Skip to next paragraph

We took to Ohio to ask people what they thought about the EPA’s actions, and what should be done about it. In our polling, we found that Ohioans were almost monolithic in their opinion.
Almost three-quarters of Ohioans agree that shuttering more coal plants is a bad idea, as is refusing to build more.
With more than 200 coal plants at risk of being shuttered due in part to EPA regulations, it’s clear: we are facing a War on Coal and affordable electricity. This election season your candidates must speak up for coal use in America. Take the pledge today.
