Miami University’s IES 495/595 Energy Planning and Design course has created a website to inform voters about energy issues for the upcoming election. The unbiased site features the candidates’ positions on energy and climate change. It also provides informational texts, videos, and graphics to help readers learn more about specific issues related to energy.

Here is the informational text students in the class will be handing out around campus in the coming days.

At GreenHawks Media, we support this project. We think it is crucial that all voters make informed choices, but especially when it comes to environmental issues. They are simply too great to be ignored any longer. Energy and the environment must begin to take precedence in our government, before it’s too late. So please, read up and don’t forget to vote on November 8!

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
