Not Cove Point!
Maryland Crossroads Tour
Comes to Columbia
Clean Energy, Not Cove Point!
— the most important local climate action event of the year
— is coming to Columbia on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the East Columbia library, 6600 Cradlerock Way, Columbia. Register here for the final stop on Chesapeake Climate Action Network's nine-stop statewide tour to sound the alarm about a major climate and environmental threat.
We are at a crossroads: We can continue business as usual, permitting industry to use extreme extraction techniques to get the last fossil fuels out of the ground -- and get extreme weather in return. Or we can move as swiftly as possible to renewable energy and more conservation to try to stabilize the climate and create a healthy world for ourselves and future generations. Dominion Resources' plan to liquefy and export fracked gas from a huge facility on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay is the wrong path for Maryland, our region and the planet.
Please attend the Maryland Crossroads event in Columbia and make this the most rousing stop of the tour. Dominion's scheme would accelerate fracking across the Marcellus Shale and lead to additional community-disrupting pipelines and compressor stations. And it would be a major climate polluter in our state. At the Crossroads event, learn what you can do to stop this pollution disaster and demand more solar and wind power. Mike Tidwell has a compelling multimedia presentation. Read his op-ed here. Delegate Liz Bobo will also be receiving a climate hero award. Tour details here and register here. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event is in the 50+ Center at the library. Listen to a WAMU program about Cove Point (and vote). You can also read more about the Cove Point facility and the campaign to stop it here, here, here and here. Sign a petition to the governor and Maryland Public Service Commission here. We hope to see you there.
