Maryland filled two new climate change jobs. The goal is to reduce emissions and handle disasters

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore announced two new positions on Wednesday aimed at addressing the causes and effects of climate change and other environmental threats. Moore, a Democrat, appointed Meghan Conklin as the state’s first chief sustainability officer, who will focus on meeting the state’s environmental goals, including reducing emissions.
He also appointed Michael Hinson to be Maryland’s first chief resilience officer, the governor’s office said in a news release. That role will oversee existing work to prepare for, adapt to, mitigate, and recover from all hazards and emergencies. That includes disasters that have increased in frequency and intensity due to climate change.

        Maryland's decision to fill two new climate change jobs reflects a proactive and forward-thinking approach towards addressing the challenges of reducing emissions and handling climate disasters. As climate change continues to impact communities and ecosystems, dedicated roles focused on these issues are essential in developing effective strategies and implementing necessary actions. By investing in these positions, Maryland is demonstrating its commitment to combatting climate change, mitigating emissions, and strengthening resilience in the face of climate-related disasters. This initiative sets an example for other regions to prioritize climate action and build a more sustainable and resilient future.
