Last year, I applied for a Student Senate environmental committee position that would be new this school year. I did not have much of an opinion about Student Senate and was not involved with any of the tickets that ran. My experience with student groups was the Sierra Student Coalition and Eco Reps. I ended up getting the position after Megan Marzec was elected, and have been a part of senate all year.
A Post columnist believes the BARE student senate ticket is the right choice for Ohio University students.

Nurturing OUr Nature: Students on campus are making a difference in the environment. You should too.
Grant writes about several students on campus that are member of the Sierra Student Coalition and why they want to help save the environment and what keeps them motivated.
Divesting from fossil fuels would set a precedent that OU wants to save the environment and it would be a symbol for change.
If poverty is the cause of environmental degradation, what is the cause of poverty and how do we fight it? The United States is less than 5 percent of the earth's population, and we use about 25 percent of the earth’s fossil fuel resources, according to the Worldwatch Institute. This consumption is directly related to the affluence of the U.S., but I don’t think it’s a question of how wealthy our country is, but how that wealth is distributed.

The 114th Congress of the United States began meeting last week and will continue to do so for the final two years of President Barack Obama’s second term. After the November elections, Republicans comprise the majority of both the Senate and House of Representatives, and they have already started pushing to pass a bill allowing the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Legislation failed to pass in the previous Congress.
A new student-led campaign will be officially launching next semester to help spread awareness about the current state of the environment.
Protecting our environment is no longer another option, and it shouldn’t depend on financial obligations or liabilities.
In last week’s midterm election, Athens County voted in favor of Issue 7 to ban hydraulic fracturing in the city limit of Athens. It passed with the highest percentage of all the nine issues that were voted on in the election with 78 percent.
Dad’s Weekend is less than a week away, and with it come multiple opportunities to get involved with sustainability on campus.
I have always been fascinated with nature. It’s a force that dictates how we live on Earth — it’s the alpha and the omega. Nature affects all of us: It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, how much money you make or anything else. On any given day, what I do is heavily dependent on weather and what I might have to prepare for. So why does it feel like most people who inhabit our planet don’t take this into account?
Activism knows no age. Just ask 68- year-old rocker/activist Neil Young. He has been a well-known activist ever since his 1970 song “Ohio” was released following the Kent State shooting in which four innocent students were killed.
Fall is here. October is already bringing a chill to our campus. In the words of Paul Simon, “The leaves that are green turn to brown. And they wither with the wind, and they crumble in your hand.” The changing of weather always makes me think: the more things change, the more they stay the same.
