Ohio must rethink fossil-fuel investment

Ohio’s government isn’t going to give any meaningful help to the state or nation in trying to end our dependence on fossil fuels. Legislation that aids the fracking boom to extract oil and natural gas from shale deposits is just one instance of Ohio’s unwillingness to divest from fossil fuels and invest in clean energy sources. …

Supreme challenge
Featured Editorial: Home
A flawed recent decision by the Ohio Supreme Court threatens to fuel a growing nationwide sentiment that police officers can act with impunity.
