This year we are coming together to tackle climate change in Maryland by DOUBLING our commitment to clean electricity like wind and solar power.
Over half of Maryland’s electricity still comes from carbon-spewing fossil fuels-coal, oil and natural gas. These dirty fuels are bad for our health, our economy, our climate, and our energy security. As the state that is the 3rd most vulnerable in America to sea-level rise driven by climate change and with the worst air quality on the east coast, we need to act now to curb our dependence on fossil fuels. And clean energy has already proven itself to be a powerful driver of economic development in Maryland, including job creation. That’s why a broad and diverse coalition of environmentalists, public health officials, business leaders, faith leaders, academics, low-income advocates and social justice advocates have come together to call on Maryland’s leaders to double the state’s clean electricity standard to 40% by 2025.
