Keep Maryland Safe From Drilling

Oil and gas companies want to start drilling in Maryland using a dangerous process called hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."  They want to get started as soon as possible, regardless of the dangerous effects of drilling we’re seeing in nearby states like Pennsylvania.  Well, they’ve got a fight on their hands – thousands of Marylanders are joining our effort to help stop gas drilling from contaminating our drinking water, polluting our air, destroying beautiful land, and threatening our health.

Go Solar, Maryland

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging Maryland's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

The consequences of global warming are apparent in Maryland and across the nation. Nobody wants our kids to inherit a world where storms like Superstorm Sandy or worse are the new normal. The National Climate Assessment released in May highlights the immediacy of this issue: “Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present.”

Clean Energy for Maryland

Too much of our energy comes from dirty sources that harm our environment—but it doesn't have to be that way. We can harness pollution-free energy from the wind and the sun. It's clean, local, and never runs out.
