    I don’t need to tell you that the Chesapeake Bay — and its delicate ecosystem — is important to Maryland’s natural heritage. After months of campaigning, we helped put in place a promising new plan to crack down on the Bay’s worst polluters. This year, we built on that success, winning new rules to reduce pollution from urban developments and factory farms.

    We should be doing everything we can to support healthy food and sustainable agriculture. Yet the U.S. House recently voted to eliminate programs that encourage local  farming — even as billions are sent to factory farms that foul our air and water. Environment Maryland delivered more than one thousand postcards to Gov. Martin O'Malley this summer in support of programs that would help local, sustainable farmers compete.

    By tapping the energy of the sun hitting the rooftops of America and the power of the wind blowing off our coasts and across the country, we can meet the energy needs of every household in the nation. New policies we helped win will bring us closer to realizing that potential by making it easier to build wind farms on and offshore, and to put solar panels on our roofs.

    The coal lobby and their allies are trying to block the EPA from protecting public health, but we’ve held the line against some of their worst attacks: In March, the U.S. Senate rejected a bill that would have blocked standards for soot, mercury and carbon pollution. In April, the Senate defeated four more bills that would have blocked the EPA from cutting air pollution.

  • 06/24/14--14:09: Restoring the Chesapeake Bay
  • Thanks to you, the Bay could soon be better protected from pollution and development. At the urging of our staff and members, the Obama administration recently moved to restore protections to 17,000 miles of our streams that feed the Chesapeake Bay. Now we need to finish the job.

    Power plants will emit less of the pollution that threatens our children’s future, thanks to our defense and strengthening of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative — Maryland’s cornerstone clean energy and pollution reduction program. Now we’re calling for federal action to limit more carbon pollution from all the nation’s power plants.

    It’s clean. It’s renewable. It’s local. And thanks to our steady effort for three years, offshore wind will be powering more of our homes after the passage of landmark legislation. Together, we’ll keep Maryland on the path toward our goal of powering homes with clean, local renewable energy.

    Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. In 2015, we mobilized grassroots support for protecting these vital pollinators. Thanks to your support, our national team and a coalition of beekeepers, farmers and others delivered more than 4 million petitions calling on the Obama administration to declare a ban on neonicotinoids, a class of bee-killing pesticides.

    By facilitating the transportation of dirty tar sands fuels, Keystone would add 27.4 million metric tons of global warming pollution to our atmosphere per year. President Trump's executive order advancing the Keystone XL pipeline is definitely a step in the wrong direction. READ MORE.
