I support the Climate Emergency Resolution presented on Oct. 15 to the City Council. I thank the Flagstaff City Council for expediting a work session for the Resolution slated for Jan. 28 City Council meeting.
Flagstaff, along with the rest of the world, is experiencing a climate emergency. Floods, fire, heat and wind risks will increase in northern Arizona. Research shows we must act now in pursuit of a livable future, and that action must start at the level of local government. Flagstaff can join 1,100 municipalities globally to create local solutions and direct action. The urgency of the moment demands this. Flagstaff can be the first city in Arizona to declare a Climate Emergency Resolution, perpetuating the city’s long history of leadership around environmental issues.
I thank the coalitions of community leaders, especially the student leaders, and those 250 citizens who signed the petition for the City Council to act.
