National Parks Conservation Association Says Global Warming Threatens National Parks in Chesapeake Bay Region
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National Parks Conservation Association, global warming
Contributed By: Joy Oakes, Mid-Atlantic Senior Regional Director, National Parks Conservation Association

“The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee today offers an important opportunity to bring attention to the increasing threat of global warming impacts on our national parks.  As discussed in the National Parks Conservation Association's new report, Unnatural Disaster, warmer water in the Chesapeake Bay is likely to increase outbreaks of two dangerous oyster diseases.”

“More than 50 national parks lie within the watershed of the Chesapeake Bay, and we must act now to slow the affects of global warming on these special places. Global warming may be the most far-reaching and serious threat that the National Park System has ever faced. For example, warming in the Bay has caused periodic spikes in salinity, which could increase the outbreaks of dangerous oyster diseases, threatening important commercial fishing and cultural resources.”

“Like many states, Maryland is taking the necessary steps to reduce in-state carbon dioxide emissions. Federal leadership remains central to addressing this serious problem. If we take meaningful steps now, future generations of Americans should be able to fully experience the shared history and natural wonders protected by our national parks. If we wait too long, much will be lost.”
