We were shocked when the Maryland Board of Public Works (including BPW member Governor Larry Hogan) voted NO on the easement for the fracked-gas Potomac Pipeline, which we’ve been fighting for over two years. Let’s send a message of thanks to these regulators and encourage them to continue to make public safety of Marylanders a priority over foolish fracked-gas fossil fuel projects like pipelines.
Urge Virginia Leaders to Join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative!
Virginia now has the opportunity to join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a regional carbon trading program proven to cut emissions and create revenue. By joining RGGI, Virginia would receive up to $200 million per year to invest in climate resilience and clean energy solutions.
We know that putting a price on carbon is one of the most straightforward and cost-effective ways to fight climate change. By making fossil fuel polluters pay for the real and damaging costs of their emissions, we can unleash the clean energy solutions we need, and make DC families better off in the process.
The Atlantic Coast & Mountain Valley Pipelines for fracked gas will put our land, water and climate at risk.
We’ve asked for protection from local officials. We’ve petitioned, called, lobbied, rallied, and marched. But our voices have not yet been heard.
Oil trains travel in close proximity to Baltimore homes, schools, churches, and major economic hubs like the Inner Harbor.
Now, it’s time for the Baltimore City Council and Mayor Pugh to take action and prohibit the construction of new crude oil terminals in our city.
