One year after the fracking ban in Maryland, fracking still threatens the health and safety of Marylanders and our neighbors.
Although Big Gas cannot frack in Maryland, Maryland still drives fracking in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Without markets, companies won’t frack. The opening of Dominion Energy’s fracking refinery and export terminal in Cove Point, the first export terminal to be allowed on the East coast, means fracking companies can now sell gas all over the world. And that means more fracking, more pipelines and more compressor stations that poison communities and worsen the climate crisis.
We must take action to stop fracking in our region.
Last week the Charles County Appeals Board DENIED a zoning permit to Dominion Energy to build a compressor station there. BUT the Maryland Department of Energy, MDE says they must comply with current federal law which allows for the permit and the project is going forward! TTheTTT
