Make reducing greenhouse gases a priority for Haverford Township

Attention Haverford Township residents! Our commissioners need to know that we want reducing greenhouse gases to be a top priority across all levels of government. In the wake of President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord, we must do more than we are already doing to protect the climate. In the absence of national leadership, local leadership has suddenly become even more critical to the welfare of our community. 

This petition asks the township to make a statement and to take action.

First, make a statement: We request that the commission pass a simple but powerful resolution that states, “Climate change is real. People caused it. The United States Congress and the Pennsylvania State Assembly must act now.” Local leaders can only do so much, so calling upon on our state and federal government to step up is essential.

Second, take action: We are lucky to live in a township that has already demonstrated its commitment to the environment; Haverford Township adopted a detailed Climate Change Action Plan eight years ago. But that plan now must be updated, and our progress toward the township’s own emissions-reduction goals need to be assessed, so we know what’s working and where we still need to improve.

As a community, we need to tell our Board of Commissioners to act. We must all work together to ensure that the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing emissions. Together, we can remain engaged with the international community to hold global warming in check and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.

Important note: Please sign this petition ONLY if you are a resident of the Haverford Township. Be sure to include your name and address, and check to see if your address information is accurate in the Change.org database; it might be outdated if you have moved in the last few years.
