Climate Initiatives in Maryland
Maryland Climate Coalition and Climate Stewards of Greater Annapolis Speakers Series
Stop The Potomac Pipeline Brooke Harper, Maryland & DC Policy Director, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, will discuss opposition to the proposed pipeline under the Potomac River. TransCanada—the same company behind the Keystone XL pipeline—is threatening Maryland communities and the drinking water of hundreds of thousands with a proposed pipeline. The Potomac Pipeline would transport fracked-gas under the Potomac River and the C&O Canal. Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative Vincent DeMarco, Board Chair, and Jamie DeMarco, Campaign Co-Manager, will discuss the Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative. The Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative will work to enact legislation to ensure that 50% of Maryland’s electricity comes from renewable sources by 2030. This same legislation will fund clean energy workforce development to establish career pathways for more Maryland workers to fill this growing industry. This discussion is great lead-in to Climate in the Pulpits, an initiative to raise up Creation care and climate justice in Maryland congregations from September 15-17, 2017. This discussion is free and open to public. All are welcome. Please join us.
