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.
Saving the Planet for Future Generations
Harford County Climate Action is a group of citizens concerned with the devastating effects of climate change on our planet. Climate change refers to the recent and ongoing rise in global average temperature near the Earth’s surface. It is caused mostly by human activity which increases concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Global warming is causing climate patterns to change. we seek to educate the public, explore green energy solutions and take action to lessen the human impact affecting our planet and lives.
If you are worried about climate disruption and want to do something about it locally, please come to our meetings. We need your input because each of us has a role to play in saving the planet.
