Hi all,

I got this from Jessica Keating the St. Mary's College of Maryland Chesapeake Climate Action Network Intern, and I thought you might be interested. I am planning on going, and I am going to try to figure out transportation.

see you Monday,


On **Monday, March 3rd** students from all across Maryland will be gathering in Annapolis to lobby their representatives for the Global Warming Solutions Act. If passed, the Act will be the most progessive state legislation about global warming to date, with a mandate to cut emissions 25% below 2006 levels by 2020 and 90% by 2050. The legislation also requires the environmental department to have a timeline and figure out what programs to implement to meet these targets and would set up a cap and trade system of carbon credits within Maryland.

STUDENT LOBBY DAY will include a training session on how to lobby as well as time to talk with your school's representatives about the bill. Students are encouraged to come in groups of 5 or more, so bring your friends, classmates, or student group to Annapolis and get your voice heard!
