The Ecology Center, Mi Air Mi Health and the Union of Concerned Scientists are co-hosting an energy and public health event on Thursday in Lansing.
This week, seven of Michigan's coal units will permanently shut down. This will be a big step forward for the environment and public health in Michigan. However, more needs to be done to ensure that clean energy ramps up as coal production ramps down in Michigan.
State legislators are currently considering an energy bill that could help boost Michigan's use of energy efficiency and renewable energy. Now is the time to decide how Michigan will power its energy future.
