Video: Michigan Voters Can Vote YES on Renewable Energy
The Great Lakes are heating up, along with my desire for clean energy to end our over-dependence on dirty fuels. This summer, I was shocked to feel the impacts of climate change so close to home while swimming in Lake Michigan’s waters, which had reached over 80 degrees, and could not believe it when the normally frigid Lake Superior became warm enough for me to swim in.
Voting YES on Michigan Standard for Renewable Energy
This November 6, Michigan voters like me face an easy choice. Do we keep spending billions to import coal from other states and oil from the Middle East that are fueling climate change? Or do we move Michigan to a clean, renewable energy. I think the answer is clear. When we have the clear capability to produce nearly carbon free energy here, in state, I undoubtedly chose the policy that will support Michigan workers and give preference to Michigan manufacturers.
As a Michigan voter, this November 6th I will get to vote YES on proposal 3, “A Proposal to Amend the State Constitution to Establish a Standard for Renewable Energy” Proposal 3 will increase Michigan’s renewable energy standard to 25% by 2025 though investing in clean sources such as wind, solar, and biomass.
