For the health of our community and our children we are calling on Governor Martin O’Malley to stop the proposed trash burning incinerator from being built in Curtis Bay. If built the Energy Answers Incinerator would be the largest of its kind in the nation, producing more pollutants per hour of energy produced than the largest coal plants in Maryland. Worse still, the project is set to be built less than a mile from Benjamin Franklin High School and Curtis Bay Elementary School, in violation of Maryland state regulations. It is this kind of recklessness that has led Baltimore to be ranked number one in air pollution related deaths per capita.
Energy Answers was required to begin construction in August. While the Maryland Department of Environment investigates if they failed to do so, we are calling on Governor O’Malley to intervene and protect our children’s health and the health of our community.
Please sign our petition asking Governor O’Malley to stop the incinerator! Let him know that our community is not a dumping ground. Call the Governor now at 410.974.3901 / 1.800.811.8336.
Thank you for your support
Anthony Brown, Lt. Governor
Gov. Martin O'Malley, Maryland
Don't trash our community. Go green. Stop the incinerator!
Building the nations' largest trash burning incinerator less than a mile from our schools, recreation center, businesses, and homes is wrong.
There is a plan to build the nations' largest incinerator less than a mile away from our schools here in Baltimore. Our community already has the most air pollution in Maryland and our lives are cut short because of where we were born.
Robert Bullard, the father of environmental justice and Curtis Bay youth activist Destiny Watford talk about the high stakes fight against the country's largest incinerator under construction in Baltimore
