BREAKING: Heidi Cody, Washington Conservation Action’s SW Washington Community Organizer, along with Hector Hinojosa of Vancouver Metro LULAC 47026, Ann Foster of Friends of Clark County, and Don Steinke of Climate Action SW WA and Sierra Club Loo Wit just walked out of a Clark County Council meeting where they delivered signatures from more than 1,000 Clark County residents who signed our petition calling upon our county to take real and tangible climate action!
Our petition asks Clark County Council members to include climate resiliency and a greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal in the next 20-year County Comprehensive Plan.
Thank you to those of you who signed our petition. It shows Clark County Council that people care about this issue.
This countywide plan will have a broad impact: It will affect communities that are overburdened with threats from air pollution, flooding, and wildfire. It will determine whether our farmland and food systems are preserved. It will influence whether we continue to over-develop certain areas, whether we protect clean water, whether we develop a modern transportation system. Climate change affects all these things, and must be addressed.
