Staff Report

Former Ohio Governor Bob Taft and a panel of experts gave presentations at “Working toward a Greener Ohio,” in the Kennedy Union Ballroom at the University of Dayton Oct. 23.

The panel, subtitled “A forum on the responsible use and generation of energy,” was sponsored by “Sustainability, Energy and the Environment Initiative,” the Marianist Environmental Education Center and UD Sustainability Week.

Along with Taft, the panel included Director of Catholic Climate Covenant Dan Misleh, Leanne Jablonski, Kevin Hallinan and Steve Caminati. Bob Brecha was the event moderator.

A summary of remarks provided to The Catholic Telegraph reported Misleh urged attendees to do their part for a Greener Ohio.

“Each of you can take action today by adding your voice to those of the U.S. Catholic bishops,” he said, according to the provided summary. “You can let the EPA know that you support a national standard that drives down carbon emissions from power plants.  You can also send a letter to the editor voicing your concern, as a Catholic, that these standards will also help relieve the health concerns of those living near these energy plants and lessen the impact of climate change around the world.”
