MSU Beyond Coal Student Group Endorsements

Mining coal and using coal to generate power is the single most destructive industrial process employed on a daily basis in our country. Through its CO2 emissions, water and air pollution, and its irreparable damage to natural landscapes, the use of coal destroys the environment and degrades public health. Furthermore, the coal industry is responsible over 30% of annual U.S. global warming pollution.

Students and young people have been at the forefront of every major social justice movement in recent history—and now we are leading the fight for clean energy.

Campuses Beyond Coal is a campaign to transition every campus in the country away from coal to 100 percent clean energy sources, a critical step in ending our nation’s dependence on coal. By moving our schools beyond coal, we will take a lead, starting right here at MSU, in building a clean, renewable and secure energy future.

I/We support the effort of Michigan State University Beyond Coal to end our campus’ dependence on coal and instead invest in solutions that will create clean energy jobs, protect our public health, air and water, and solve the climate challenge.
