Legislators Urged to Maintain Strong Action to Reduce Emissions and Combat Climate Change

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

More than 50 people crowded Legislature Chambers and nearly half of them spoke, speaking out in the wake of the Paris Climate Conference to urge the County to keep up and step up local efforts to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. In comments that lasted more than an hour, speakers, many of them wearing red to communicate a sense of emergency, said the Paris Climate Conference has provided some hope, but that local action now will be necessary to make the Paris Climate Accord’s 1.5-degree standard a working local benchmark. Many legislators thanked those who turned out for their input, their compassion, and their commitment.
