As a surprise to most of us, gas bearing shale underlies much of the state of Maryland. Specifically, the Taylorsville Basin runs northeastward from Richmond to Annapolis, under Prince George’s, Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s, and Anne Arundel Counties. In Pennsylvania and other states, hydraulic fracturing of natural gas (fracking) has endangered health by polluting drinking water and has lowered property values.
Governor Hogan and his Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) have gutted a clean air plan that would have required Big Coal to clean up its act.
We hope your signs are almost ready to go!! Please join the Sierra Club Howard County group at 5:30 am at the Glenmont metro stop on Thursday September 24th!! Rallies will be starting at 7:00 am in DC before the Pope's speech to Congress slated for 9:20 am. For more info on the day's events visit: http://www.moralactiononclimate.org .
