Harford County Climate Action is working with Neighborhood Sun to ensure ALL Harford County residents have access to clean energy! I have signed up, thereby guaranteeing that my energy bills will remain 5% below those charged by BG&E. Neighborhood Sun is looking for 20 more people to sign up before the end of September in order to build the local solar project that will be the source of this clean energy. Please consider becoming a part of this innovative method of getting solar energy to renters and even those who have a house but aren’t yet ready to put panels on it.

On April 17 2018, at the invitation of the Harford County Council, Harford County Climate Action represented by Tracey Waite, Fawn Palmer and Adilakshmi Tadepalli spoke about climate change, explaining the greenhouse effect, the role of human activity, the predicted impact of sea level rise in Harford County, the role of the fossil fuel industry in spreading doubt and denial, and the importance of renewable energy and local action to mitigate climate change.
Startled by Harford County Council president Richard Slutzky’s remarks at the Feb 13th meeting of the council, in which he dismissed climate change as fake news, and part of a plan by the UN to redistribute wealth by alarming the public, a number of residents came to speak to the council at its February 20th meeting.
Harford County Climate Action has continued discussing climate change with council members and has been invited to present on the issue at the April 17 meeting. The public is encouraged to attend.

A vocal group of 20 people including 5 middle and high school students braved the frigid winds Friday, January 2, to oppose the Trump administration’s move to open nearly the entire United States coastline to offshore drilling. They were met with approving honks and thumbs-up signs from passersby. Representative Andy Harris stated in a recent interview with WYPR that he would be open to offshore drilling in Maryland provided that it was out of sight and the communities agreed to it.
