U of M to hold two events Thursday on Proposal 3 and renewable energy
On Thursday, October 25th, voters in Washtenaw County can attend two events at the University of Michigan about Proposal 3 and renewable energy.

From 4:30 P.M. to 6:00 P.M., the School of Public Health will host Michigan's Renewable Energy Proposal: A Health, Science and Policy Conversation. This event is billed as a discussion on the health, environmental, and policy issues and impact of Michigan Proposal 3, which will amend the state constitution to require 25% of Michigan's electricity to be generated from renewable sources by 2025.

Then beginning at 7:00 P.M., four activists and scientists will hold a panel at the Dana Building titled "A Cure for the Common Coal." The panelists will discuss the problems associated with mining and burning coal, as well as options for cleaner, more humane sources of energy.
In article about Free Press referendum endorsements, I wrote that "I'll have more to say about Proposal 3 in particular." The article above makes good on that promise.
