Good news for Chesapeake Bay
Staff quoted: Heath Kelsey
Article Link Permanent Link

Researchers from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) predict that the seasonal "dead zone" in Chesapeake Bay will be smaller than average this year. The dead zone's presence is created by a combination of rainfall amount and nutrient pollution. "Nutrients are a key driver in determining the size of dead zones in the Bay", explains hydrologist Michael Woodside (US Geological Survey, Nashville, TN). Heath Kelsey (Integration and Application Network, UMCES, Cambridge, MD) adds that "more nutrients entering the system mean more intense phytoplankton blooms. We're predicting a smaller than average [dead zone] this summer because spring nitrogen loads were lower than average."

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is advocating more than 150 programs and initiatives that support his state's ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25% by 2020, a plan that goes farther than any other state except Massachusetts.

Maryland's New Emissions Plan Shows Climate Action Is Cost-Effective
Article Link Permanent Link

As impacts from climate change become more visible and costly, leaders across the nation are responding. In the wake of projections from the University of Maryland's Center for Environmental Science showing that Maryland could face sea-level rise of more than six feet by the end of the century, Governor Martin O'Malley unveiled a state climate action plan this week. The initiative will reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also supporting job creation and economic growth.

It's not too late to act on climate change - Maryland has taken a leadership role with a comprehensive plan to address climate realities; now others must follow our example
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Climate change is real. The stakes are high and the time is short. In Maryland, we just have to think about last week's sweltering weather to get a look into our future. In 50 years, it could be a rare summer day when temperatures in Maryland do not reach well into the 90s, with high humidity and warm nights. Most days would have code orange air quality or worse as the heat raises ozone levels, even as we are reducing air pollution. While we typically experience only two or three days when temperatures exceed 100 degrees, this would likely grow to 30 or more days, with life-threatening heat waves punctuated by intense downpours and flash flooding. These are just the patterns that climate scientists anticipate.

Vulnerable Maryland weighs threat of sea-level rise

It was scary enough that a team of experts on sea-level rise projected that Maryland's coastal waters could rise to six feet in this century. But to hammer home the findings of a new report, they included a link to a Web tool that allows readers to make like a god, sliding a scale over pictures of state landmarks until a creeping tide washes them away.
