Toronto, Ontario – The leadership of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance in helping Ontario to become the first jurisdiction to end the use of coal-fired electricity for health and environmental reasons has not gone unnoticed.

Our hugely successful campaign was recently profiled in a 5 minute video produced by Al Gore’s Climate Reality project and featuring Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman.

Ontario set an example for the world with this action to reduce our climate impact, improve health and kick start a move toward a green energy future. But we still have a long way to go, with powerful interests still championing our creaky nuclear-dominated system and even questioning why we need to bother with energy conservation.

As Institute for Energy and Environmental Research Scientist (and nuclear engineer) Arjun Makhijani recently put it: “To solve the climate problem, we are short of two things: time and money. Nuclear is really bad on both counts.”

That’s why the OCAA continues to push for Ontario to finish the work it started with the coal phase out by transitioning to a truly sustainable 100% renewable electricity system. But we need your help to bring this better future about as quickly as possible. Please make a donation to support this important work. It will be your contribution to making Ontario a place people around the world continue to look to for climate leadership.

Here’s to a renewable future!

Please pass this message on to your friends.
