  • Letter from the Director: A paradigm is shaking | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    entire 20th century energy system is spinning out of control before our eyes The old energy paradigm is shaking and shuddering on its way to the grave Think about it All the easy oil and gas has run out so the industry is moving toward the extreme extraction and transport of fracked oil and gas That s sparked a backlash Meanwhile our society has turned increasingly against coal prompting companies to try to export it overseas to stay in business More backlash And wind and solar prices have simultaneously fallen so dramatically that in concert with unconventional gas they are putting nuclear energy on the ropes Which is why Exelon owner of the biggest nuclear fleet in America wants to merge with Pepco in the DC area and increase the number of ratepayers who can prop up its aging nuclear plants More backlash But again all of this is proof that the old energy system is on the way out much quicker than we thought while a new energy system is rushing in You can see all of this in the extraordinary array of campaigns CCAN is engaged in right now We re working with Virginia farmers and landowners and students to fight back against Dominion s ridiculous proposal to build a 550 mile fracked gas pipeline in Virginia a k a the Atlantic Coast pipeline And we re fighting for an outright moratorium on fracking in Maryland while we also work to stop plans to ship North Dakota crude oil out of Baltimore But because the energy paradigm is changing rapidly we re also making dramatic new progress on OFFENSE in both Virginia and Maryland Our Virginia Coastal Protection Act with bipartisan support fell just one vote short of getting out of a Senate committee The bill would implement

  • Letter from the Director: We Voted With Our Feet | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    old Gay straight Our country was represented at the march and our voice was loud We want climate solutions now I m reminded of the urgency of our movement and the progress we re making wherever I travel in the Maryland Virginia DC region Last month I was in the Virginia coastal city of Portsmouth where sea level rise linked to climate change is already wreaking havoc on a near weekly basis As I met with State Senator L Louise Lucas she explained that flooding was so bad in Portsmouth this September after a heavy rain at high tide that she had trouble reaching the apartment building she owns and operates for mentally handicapped adults to begin an evacuation In Annapolis Maryland the flooding is getting so bad that a recent study from the Union of Concerned Scientists says there will be near daily nuisance flooding of streets and homes in the not too distant future In other words entire parts of the city are headed toward permanent disappearance But I m also reminded of the progress we re making in fighting the core source of the problem greenhouse gas pollution The city council in Washington DC is on the

  • Virginia will flood. Or not. | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    pass a game changing piece of legislation called the Virginia Coastal Protection Act This bill would reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Virginia while generating billions of dollars in funds to protect coastal Virginia and invest in clean energy Now we need you to tell your legislators in Richmond to support this common sense vitally important legislation Sign the petition Call on your legislators to support the Virginia Coastal Protection Act a bill that will cap statewide greenhouse gas pollution while funding vital coastal flooding solutions Did you know the Navy is trying to rapidly elevate its major piers in Norfolk due to rising water Meanwhile churches in downtown Norfolk are trying to relocate rather than wade into Sundayservices and engineers say the city needs 1 billion for floodgates and other measures to hold back the water Where will the money come from for Norfolk and other the other coastal cities and counties of Hampton Roads Congress is in gridlock and the Virginia state budget is being squeezed That s where the Virginia Coastal Protection Act comes in The bill would direct Virginia to join a nine state system for capping carbon pollution from power plants called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative RGGI which is already in place from Maine to Maryland By auctioning carbon pollution permits to power companies RGGI would generate over 200 million per year for Virginia while cutting planet heating pollution No less than 50 percent of the revenues raised under the bill would fund coastal flood protection measures The other half would be invested in other climate solutions like solar power development statewide as well as investments in energy efficiency and the retraining of displaced workers in areas like Southwest Virginia Sign the petition Call on your state legislators to support the Virginia Coastal Protection Act

  • After Maryland’s election, we’re going on offense | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    of room for optimism on energy policies in Maryland That s because we ve been in this exact same position before and won transformative victories under the last Republican governor in our state Nearly ten years ago under then Gov Bob Ehrlich climate activists like you helped pass the Maryland Healthy Air Act to dramatically reduce power plant pollution And you helped pass Maryland s original clean electricity mandate a k a the Renewable Portfolio Standard Governor Ehrlich who did not embrace global warming as a priority signed both bills into law thanks to the commitment sweat and passion of people like you So what can we do under Governor Hogan Again let s pass a transformative bipartisan bill to DOUBLE the state s commitment to wind and solar power Right now our state by law will require 20 of Maryland s electricity to come from clean sources by the year 2022 Let s double it to 40 instead by the year 2025 Such a bill passed now will create thousands of jobs and save thousands of lives while dramatically reducing carbon pollution across Maryland And we can do it Sign this letter to Senate President Mike Miller House Speaker Mike Busch and Governor elect Larry Hogan Tell them to work together to enact legislation in 2015 to double our state s use of wind and solar power and urge them to protect our land from dangerous fracking The fact is that no governor can afford to veto all or even most of the important bills passed by an opposition legislature The most popular bills supported by the most vocal advocates are likely to get signed Again witness Bob Ehrlich from 2003 2007 And remember legislators who have shown they are willing to act on climate change including Democrats and

  • Dominion Admits the Truth: Cove Point Plant Could Explode, Trapping Neighbors | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    residents fear for their safety The company has been deceiving residents since Day 1 about the safety of this facility Because of course Dominion can t possibly provide assurances to residents living nearby It can t guarantee that an accident will stay behind the 60 foot high wall that will go up around much of the plant It refuses to conduct a full safety study requested by neighbors and it certainly can t defy the laws of physics and contain leaking and billowing gases in search of a spark Not that this little road will create safe passage for those living southeast of the plant as it is still within a half mile of Dominion s front gate A 2006 study done for an expansion at the existing import plant found that a flash fire could incinerate people nearly a mile away Dominion s behind the scenes purchase on Sept 19 of a 319 000 house to create a bypass south of the plant offers only false security while simultaneously confirming the very hazard the company denies Lusby residents have been right all along They have turned their lives over to research They have pleaded for protection from elected and appointed officials They have pointed out that Dominion documents overlook 39 732 residents living in the area including 8 000 within 2 miles of the company gates For their efforts they have received only platitudes about safety With Dominion s revelations about this road residents know their fears for their lives and their homes are justified And shame on elected officials including Maryland Gov Martin O Malley Rep Steny Hoyer U S Sens Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin for backing this Virginia energy company instead of Maryland residents This little road shows that officials should have stood on the side
