The adage ‘think global, act local’ also refers to climate change. Us ‘little people’ have more power than assumed, as these sweeping climate change initiatives – future Paris climate treaty and the Clean Power Plan – are actually legislated and executed state-by-state. Maryland’s state senators and delegates, in concert with Governor Hogan, will legislate greenhouse gas reduction and renewable energy regulations. Did you know that Baltimore legislators are eco-power-brokers, and chair both the Senate and House environmental committees. Who knew you were so powerful and could impact climate change closer to home?
