Declare A Climate Emergency in Buffalo, NY!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Help us move Buffalo to address climate change! We need your signatures to encourage the Buffalo Common Council to declare a Climate Emergency! This will lay the groundwork for Buffalo to dramatically accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy through the creation of green jobs and avoiding legislative and bureaucratic impediments to this goal.

Last year the International Panel on Climate Change released its 5th report which details that we have roughly 11 years to enact serious political and social change to avoid a devastating climate catastrophe. This year alone there have been unprecedented floods throughout the midwest, massive wildfires ravaging the west coast, and the hottest month on record. If that's any indication of what's to come, then we have to maximize our limited window to act!
