Problem
The City of Vista's Climate Action plan is being updated and will soon be released. We desperately need the Vista City Council to prioritize hiring a full time Climate Action Plan Director to oversee and implement the recommendations to the plan to meet those recommendations just released by the Trump Administration. See web-link for the government report findings. https://nca2018.globalchange.gov "Climate change creates new risks and exacerbates existing vulnerabilities in communities across the United States, presenting growing challenges to human health and safety, quality of life, and the rate of economic growth."  Currently, the City of Vista does not have anyone assigned to effectively implement the recommendations of the soon to be released updated Climate Action Plan. What is the point of revising and updating a CAP to match the dire threat of the climate crisis if there is no-one to take the action steps? 

Solution
The City Council of Vista, CA needs to immediately:
*Vote to appropriate funds for a full time Climate Action Plan Director
*Recruit and hire a full time Climate Action Plan Director

Personal story
The White House just released its multi-agency report on the urgent and dire findings on the status of the global climate crisis. The US government confirms climate change is real and the many scientific agencies instructed by Congress to research the current status of climate change and its short term and long term effects on the planet have been reported; the findings are much worse than previously predicted. https://nca2018.globalchange.gov  Every single municipality on planet Earth must take immediate action steps to reduce carbon emissions and to implement the boldest of climate action plans. This requires a full time Climate Action Plan Director and the City of Vista does NOT have one. Currently, the Community Development Director has been tasked with updating the Climate Action plan, but there will be no-one to implement the recommendations if the City of Vista does not hire someone to oversee the Climate Action Plan implementation. We must have a full time Climate Action Plan Director and we need one now!
