Take Action: The Next Keystone XL?

On January 17th, 2014

FROM EARTHJUSTICE.ORG

Prediction for 2014: the next flash point in the global fight against the fossil fuel industry will take place on the quiet shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

A big part of this fight is up to you. TAKE ACTION TODAY!

Virginia-based Dominion Resources wants to build a massive export facility in Cove Point, MD that would pipe fracked gas from Pennsylvania, supercool and liquefy it, and ship it halfway across the globe to be burned. The dangerous consequences of this fossil fuel export scheme? Increased climate-disrupting pollution, a whole lot more fracking, and a big threat to one of our national treasures. Act now to stop this project!

That’s why Earthjustice is part of a coalition of state, regional and national environmental groups that have joined together with Maryland nurses, watermen, and local business owners to fight this project. Our coalition is turning out hundreds of people to town hall meetings and persuading elected officials to oppose and raise questions about the project.

But one voice has been missing from the conversation: Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

Gov. O’Malley is positioning himself as a national leader on climate change and environmental issues, and also has reported ambitions for higher office. He needs to know that people all over the country are watching how he handles the Cove Point export project.

Bill McKibben, cofounder of 350.org, has called this project “one of the most important fossil fuel fights in America today.”

Make your voice heard. Tell Gov. O’Malley to take a stand.

One response to “Take Action: The Next Keystone XL?”

  1. William Howell says:

    These last gasps of a national attitude based in fossil fuels and consumption at all costs are, nevertheless, still capable of leaving powerful scars on our lands and seas. The failure to look ahead, to see bigger pictures, to think of generations to come is the mark of immaturity in the offices of power. As we move into this new year, a great balance will move toward community and long-term awareness or to continued investment in those who think that they control capital. But they do not control anything. Nature is in control. And if we communally work to harmonize our individual and collective actions with that profound global and cosmic intelligence, we will be storing up wisely for a long winter, which is sure to come. If we laugh at such proposals, we will reap the whirlwind. The responsibility lies with each of us...and especially with those holding public office.
