Catholic Climate Covenant Ohio SB 310 Sample Letter to Governor

June 2, 2014

The Honorable John Kasich
Governor of Ohio
77 S. High Street, 30th Floor
Columbus, OH 43215

Dear Governor Kasich,

I write to you today to share my concern with SB 310, a bill that will significantly weaken Ohio’s laws that diversify how we produce energy, will likely raise electric rates, and could leave Ohio at a competitive and moral disadvantage compared to other states.  I urge you to veto SB 310 and will stand with you in support of retaining Ohio’s successful clean energy laws.

Climate Justice and the Moral Obligation to God’s Creation

In the U.S., we have seen more powerful storms like Superstorm Sandy and Katrina, more severe wild fires, and the worst drought in several decades. Abroad, humanity is bracing for flooding of densely-populated coastal regions, crop failure and famine, and mass migrations resulting in violent conflict. We must act, quickly and powerfully, to change systems and laws towards climate justice.
