Kentuckians and a Sustainable Future

The state of Kentucky, like many other states, is caught between a historically vital industry and a sustainable future. Coal is the way of the past and the industry has been engrained itself in Kentucky’s economy for centuries. However, with legislation like the Clean Power Act requiring a shift to renewable, sustainable resources, states are required to either comply with the new federal legislation, or come up with a tailored plan that helps the state to meet the required decrease in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. When Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin indicated no intent in creating such a plan at the outset of his governorship last year, some locals took it into their own hands to come up with a plan that would allow the aspects of the past and the future to work in concert for a sustainable future.  For more information on the Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, a grassroots coalition started to represent local special interests that is working towards this sustainable future, please visit: http://www.eenews.net/stories/1060044749
