    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
    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...
  • Eastern Shore wind farm an environmental 'wolf in sheep's clothing'

    Eastern Shore wind farm an environmental 'wolf in sheep's clothing'
    Like the proverbial "wolf in sheep's clothing," a Texas energy company is promoting a massive Eastern Shore wind farm as an environmentally friendly "green" project ("Eastern Shore wind project confronts eagles, Navy," April 29). In reality, this...

    A wind-win for Maryland and a beacon for the bay
    After protesting at a nearby coal plant in 2008 and becoming discouraged with his own dependence on unsustainable energy, Charles County Commissioner Ken Robinson decided to build a wind generator on his coastal property and get off the grid. He became...
