Show Your Love for Wind

February 13, 2013
Annapolis, Maryland

Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Lawyer's Mall, Maryland State House, 100 State Circle

February is a time for love and why not share the love for wind this Valentine's Day!! It is because of Marylanders like you that our state is closer than ever to being in the forefront of a new American offshore wind power industry.

This Wednesday, we're asking you to come to Annapolis to come show your LOVE for WIND  before state lawmakers take critical votes.

Please join us to support Governor O’Malley next Wednesday, February 13th from 11 am-noon in Annapolis. Let's make sure the Maryland General Assembly hears our voices loud and clear -- and passes the 2013 offshore wind power bill.

The Maryland Senate Finance Committee will hold a hearing on the offshore wind power bill (SB 275) in the afternoon the same day, and will likely vote on the legislation in the next few weeks.

The bill is co-sponsored by a majority of the committee members, as well as a majority of the entire senate. But we can't rest on our laurels -- we need to make sure a strong bill passes the finish line without any amendments that weaken it.

So many of you have poured your hearts  into this campaign -- from our first town hall meeting in Ocean City in the summer of 2010 to our massive rally in Annapolis last April.  You've made calls. You've knocked on doors. You've written letters.

This is it: it’s time to go to Annapolis again and show our elected leaders that your passion for offshore wind continues and that this  is the year to finally jump start the state’s offshore wind power industry!

We know why this is so important: The wind blowing off Maryland's Atlantic coast is a vast, untapped energy source. It has the power to provide clean energy, create local jobs, and produce the equivalent of two-thirds of Maryland's current electricity needs.

  • Fracking: Harm on the Farm

    Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.
