A Climate Action Plan is a strategy document that outlines policies and measures that are taken to reduce the emissions of Greenhouse Gases. A CAP (Climate Action Plan) uses Greenhouse Gas emissions as its foundation and provides local goals that need to be met to reduce these emissions. A CAP gives the framework and guides needed in order to achieve these goals. A CAP can be a standalone document or it can be integrated into a pre-existing plan whether it be a comprehensive plan or sustainability plan. A CAP is important because it shows that the local government system recognizes that there is a climate issue and that they are willing to take steps to combat the issue by enforcing guidelines. A plan for climate protection is an essential tool for guiding our community to start taking action in climate change mitigation. It helps prioritize actions needed to successfully reduce the emission of Greenhouse Gases. CAP also helps local governments use it as a roadmap when implementing municipal and community-wide programs, projects, and policies. I promote that the implementation of a CAP is proposed to Pete Ricketts and his team. Nebraska has yet to implement any sort of plan for this pressing matter. 34 other states have a Climate Action Plan implemented in the government system. Climate Change is an issue that everyone involved should be concerned about. Help me call Pete Ricketts to share the concern.
