Letter to the Editor: Maryland should turn to wind power

Dear Editor,
As world leaders gathered in Paris to forge an international agreement to cut carbon pollution (December 3, 2015; Turning to the Wind) a new report from Environment Maryland shows that they should turn to the wind for solutions.
The analysis uses federal government data to show that wind in Maryland could produce enough power to reduce pollution from 53,000 cars. Across the country, a moderate growth in wind power could avert more than 104 million tons of carbon pollution—the same amount produced by 4.3 million cars each year.

Wind power here in Maryland has the potential to grow steadily, reducing pollution and helping to solve the climate crisis. But we need government policies to provide steady support for wind power, so that we can build momentum in the fight against global warming. That’s why it’s so critical that Congress renews tax incentives for wind power and helps speed the transition we need to 100 percent clean energy.

Thanks,
Morgan DiGiorgio
Intern Environment Maryland
