Fracking is a dangerous drilling practice linked to drinking water contamination, air and climate pollution and even earthquakes in nearby states. Unfortunately, the gas and oil industry is zeroing in on Maryland – not only as the next state where they want to frack, but also as a conduit to ship fracked gas to the rest of the world.
Climate change is intensifying and scientists say we must move toward clean energy solutions now to avoid the worst impacts. In Maryland, the biggest single source of global warming pollution is the burning of dirty fossil fuels for electricity. We're calling on the Maryland General Assembly to act by requiring that 40% of Maryland's electricity come from clean sources like wind and solar by 2025.
