Climate Solutions NOW!
Legislators, environmental organizations, and communities across Maryland are joining together to pass the most sweeping, and necessary, statewide legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reverse the damaging impacts of climate change, and transition away from polluting fossil fuels.
The time to act is NOW!
The Climate Solutions NOW Act will help reverse climate change by:
Committing the state to aggressive, but necessary, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that trap heat and pollutants in our cities and towns,
Mandating that a percentage of all future climate spending go to communities already overburdened by the impacts of climate change, like urban heat and flooding, and
Prioritizing climate mitigation efforts including the planting of 5 million trees, with a minimum target for trees in our most impacted urban neighborhoods.
As part of the Climate Solutions NOW Coalition, Blue Water Baltimore is joining the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), the Maryland League of Conservation Voters (MD LCV), the Legislative Black Caucus, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and countless other Marylanders to rally support for SB 414 and HB 583 in February.
