Tim Whitehouse

PSR Affiliation: Director, Chesapeake Bay Area PSR

Timothy Whitehouse is the new Director of the Chesapeake PSR chapter, where he will focus on issues related to climate change while also building the chapter’s membership and organizational capacity.  Tim worked previously on international environmental issues and at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and as a volunteer on local renewable energy issues in Maryland.  Although the Chesapeake chapter is based in Baltimore, Tim will initially be working from the PSR office in Washington, DC.

In the Spotlight

On Friday September 12, 2014, MdEHN, Chesapeake PSR, and ANHE co-hosted a symposium of experts to assess the findings of the study, Potential Public Health Impacts of Natural Gas Development and Production in the Marcellus Shale in Western Maryland.  There was general consensus that science is emerging that suggests health issues associated with various aspects of gas and oil well development need to be better understood, and that as a consequence, Maryland should not proceed with hydrofracturing at this time.
