MD Climate Action Plan

MD Climate Action Plan

On April 20, 2007, Governor Martin O’Malley established the Maryland Climate Change Commission charged with collectively developing an action plan to address the causes of climate change, prepare for the likely consequences and impacts of climate change to Maryland, and establish firm benchmarks and timetables for implementing the Commission’s recommendations. IAN staff were contracted with work with UMCES President Don Boesch and MD DNR staff to produce two specific chapters in The Climate Action Plan Final Report which was released on August 27, 2008. The newsletter and poster were additional science communication products produced by IAN.
