Toben said. “This is a very complex

delivering a history of the cogen-

Bruce Nilles, deputy director

Nilles discussed the importance
of universities getting involved in
the fight against coal, and gave
examples of other universities
working with the Beyond Coal
campaign, including Cornell and
Ball State universities.
At the next meeting, the group
will hear from Ray DuBose, man-
