Don't let coal plant owners undermine public health protections -- send a message to MDE Secretary Bob Summers and Governor O'Malley, urging them to issue strong public health protections to clean up the Crane and Wagner coal plants!
Coal-fired power plants like Crane and Wagner, just outside of Baltimore, dump dangerous amounts of pollutants into the air, creating smog.
The good news is that the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) has drafted strong, health-protecting standards to limit pollution from these plants.The bad news is that the plant owners are doing everything in their power to weaken the proposed health standards so they don't have to spend money cleaning up their own pollution.
Stop the Cove Point Liquefied Natural Gas Export Facility
The Virginia-based company Dominion Resources is trying to force “Cove Point” on Maryland. Cove Point is a radical proposal to take fracked gas from throughout Appalachia, send it through pipelines across Maryland, liquefy it on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, and then ship it by tanker to Asia -- for a total pollution impact greater than that of coal.
