Environmental Action Team


To push our government to urgently enact the transformations we need to prevent the catastrophic consequences of climate change.

So Much to Do, but we can do this!!

For 90 days each year, starting in January, the Maryland General Assembly meets.  Each year we are urging our legislators to take bigger and bolder steps to fight climate change. 

If you want to become a member in the fight against climate change in the state of Maryland please email hoco-climate-action-facilitators@googlegroups.com.  We would love to have you by our side!

Climate Crisis – So Much to Do, So Little Time


  • In Maryland, rising sea levels are eroding 3000 miles of coastline and flooding over 265,000 acres of low-lying areas. Smith Island is being swallowed by water. Ellicott City was walloped by two historic floods over two years. The pounding surf is eroding the beach at Ocean City. “Sunny day” flooding is inundating downtown Annapolis and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. 
  • Maryland is uniquely situated as a state – particularly vulnerable to climate change and well-positioned to act. We could be a leader in clean energy solutions, reducing emissions from transportation, reducing single-use plastics, and much more, with a focus on climate justice.
