  • Solar power is so much simpler than wind

    Solar power is so much simpler than wind
    I'm concerned about Gov. Martin O'Malley's continuing push for wind energy off of Maryland's coast ("O'Malley to push for wind yet again," Jan. 13). I'm not opposed to wind energy as such, but I am in favor of spending taxpayer's dollars efficiently....
  • County residents say no to O'Malley's gun-control legislation

    Howard County residents Thursday urged their state delegation to say no to Gov. Martin O'Malley's gun control legislation, arguing that it punishes lawful gun owners. Of the more than 100 residents who filled the Banneker Room inside the George Howard...
  • Solar and wind power are no panacea for climate change

    Solar and wind power are no panacea for climate change
    Your recent commentary on climate change continues the politically correct approach to the problem of global warming and its solutions without approaching the reality of what has been accomplished and what the underlying issues are ("Forecast calls for...
  • Don't let offshore wind fizzle

    Don't let offshore wind fizzle
    The sentiment of the commentary, "Nuclear blows away wind" (Feb. 1) worries me. As a District of Columbia resident, I see Maryland as a leader capable of bringing offshore wind to the entire region. First, offshore wind farms will not be developed if...
  • Offshore wind energy is right for Maryland

    I applaud Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller's courageous stand for the planet and for the creation of good construction jobs as shown by his willingness to change the composition of the Senate Finance Committee if necessary in order to get the...
  • O'Malley touts Maryland's fight against climate change

    O'Malley touts Maryland's fight against climate change
    Gov. Martin O'Malley has urged President Obama to look to Maryland as a model for how government can fight climate change, while also appealing for federal help in his own quest to get wind turbines built off Ocean City. In a letter released Thursday...
  • Forecast calls for pain

    Forecast calls for pain
    Not long after President Barack Obama promised to fight climate change in his inaugural address, temperatures soared to 70 last week in Baltimore — in late January. Our weather continues to be unrecognizable. Last summer was the hottest ever...
  • Maryland needs wind power

    Maryland needs wind power
    It is with great interest that I read The Sun's article, "O'Malley to push for wind yet again," (Jan. 13) but I don't understand the opposition. Some opponents say wind farms would "look bad." Funny, how windmills in Holland are considered beautiful. More...
  • Giant solar farm eyed for Howard County's Nixon Farm

    Giant solar farm eyed for Howard County's Nixon Farm
    Nixon's Farm in West Friendship will become the county's first farm to generate solar electricity sold directly to an electric company, but the project could grow even larger if the Howard County Council approves an amended zoning regulation. Bith...
  • Congress urged to extend wind energy tax break

    While politicians spar in Washington over how to keep the nation from going over a "fiscal cliff," environmental activists warn that the wind-energy industry faces its own cliff if Congress doesn't act soon to extend a federal tax break for turbine...
  • Legislation encourages wind farm, but hurdles remain

    Legislation encourages wind farm, but hurdles remain
    After three years of trying, Gov. Martin O'Malley has won approval of legislation that aims to spur construction of towering wind turbines off Maryland's Atlantic coast. Now comes the hard part. Daunting regulatory, political and financial hurdles...
  • Delegate opposes governor's wind plan [Letter]

    Editor: I know this story may be hard to believe, but the Governor wants to construct 40 wind turbines that are 80 stories high (think: Baltimore's tallest building) and 20 miles out in the ocean. This has never been done before. The cost of this...
