Rebuild Maryland Coalition
The disastrous effects of climate change in Maryland are already being felt by our most vulnerable communities. Rising sea levels, increasing intensity of storms, and pollution-inflicted health disparities have become a reality in our state and nationwide. Top scientists around the country have been warning us about the harmful effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on our health and environment for decades. Fossil fuel companies have ignored these warnings and continued to put profits over people. Our current statewide emissions goals do not do enough to stop the accelerating impact of climate change.
We need to take serious action and use every tactic to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and hold polluters accountable. Putting a price on carbon offers a market-based solution to incentivize the reduction of emissions while also providing essential funding and protections to education and low-income households.
The COVID-19 crisis has revealed that now more than ever we need real solutions that address existing inequalities and hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for the damage they inflict. The Rebuild Maryland Coalition recognizes the sensitivity of this issue and is committed to fighting for a carbon price that protects everyday Marylanders from further bearing the cost of climate change.
