Understanding the Health Consequences in Maryland of Electricity Produced from Fossil Fuels

November 9, 2017
Baltimore, Maryland

Time:
5:45 - 6:30 pm – Dinner and Social
6:30 - 8:30 pm – Event
Location: MedChi, 1211 Cathedral St

The workshop will address available information on: 

  • air emissions and water discharges of toxic and harmful air pollutants from coal-fired and natural gas-fired power plants and natural gas infrastructure in Maryland and from electricity imported into Maryland,
  • the methods used by the state and federal governments to collect information on air emissions and water discharges and how the public can access and interpret this information,
  • information gaps, providing participants with an understanding of the health consequences of using fossil fuels to produce electricity, and
  • a specific call to action for participants.

The information gathered in this workshop will be used to support community efforts to address fossil fuel pollution in participants’ neighborhoods, to support efforts to wind down our dependence on fossil fuels, and to support efforts to transition to a clean energy economy.
