No New Fossil Fuels in Maryland

Despite rapidly intensifying climate change, Maryland is being overrun with proposed dirty energy infrastructure and other projects that will endanger clean water and vulnerable communities while making climate change worse. 

Here’s the problem: every time a new fracked-gas pipeline or liquefied natural gas facility or dirty compressor station is proposed, progressive groups and vulnerable landowners are routinely caught off guard. Our side is then constantly playing defense from day one to stop these dangerous projects.

Enough is enough.  The science is clear. There can be no new fossil fuel development. No more pipelines. No more exploration of fossil fuels. We need a just transition to the clean energy economy now.

Sign the “No New Fossil Fuels” petition today.

Dear Maryland leaders, 

We want Maryland to be a leader on climate. Even though we banned fracking in Maryland, countless fracked-gas pipelines and other harmful fossil fuel projects are being proposed across the state. The proposed Eastern Shore pipeline could carry fracked gas through nearly 200 miles of rivers, farms, and forests on our coast; multiple toxin-spewing natural gas compressor stations will soon be built; and the Potomac Pipeline was recently approved, threatening the drinking water of millions. We know that with every new pipeline, compressor station or fossil fuel project, we are locking our state into an outdated energy source that could threaten the health and well-being of our communities for decades to come. 

That's why we are saying NO NEW FOSSIL FUELS. We must immediately invest in a just transition to a clean energy economy instead. We hope that you stand with us any opposing any new fossil fuel projects and lead the way to keep our state fossil fuel free.
