Climate is in crisis.

In a 2-1 vote, the Board of County Commissioners on Sept. 15 agreed to acknowledge the global climate crisis and to move forward with a climate-action plan that will develop goals, policies and programs to reduce the county’s greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Now that the idea has been approved, a climate-action team will be developed to pursue grants and other funding sources and to determine the scope of the project and a cost estimate. The process is expected to continue until next summer when the plan would be drafted and published, and the team could continue with implementation and monitoring of the various goals and targets.
