The feds are pitching in to help the Port of Baltimore cut down on its emissions with a $2.45 million grant to replace trucks and conventional diesel cargo-hauling equipment with clean diesel technology.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reversed course on a decision to rescind years’ worth of future funding for a nonprofit publication that’s covered the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort for nearly three decades.
After a year of federal inaction on states’ damaging coal-fired power plant emissions, Maryland’s attorney general, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and others are taking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to court.
A nearly three-decade-old newspaper devoted to covering the Chesapeake Bay’s restoration is about to lose a major chunk of its revenue, thanks to an abrupt decision by Trump administration.
Federal lawmakers have blocked an attempt by President Donald Trump to cancel Obama-era methane rules — at least on federal lands.

This unlikely block is actually a big deal for citizens who live near fracking sites, the tax coffers of certain states and all citizens who live on Planet Earth.
The U.S. Environmental Protection is writing a $40,000 check to the City of Baltimore to help it harness the power of crowdsourced data and local partnerships to monitor air pollution.
