We the undersigned support the motion before The Town of The Blue Mountains Council at the upcoming October 21st meeting to declare a climate emergency. The acknowledgement of a genuine crisis on the part of the municipality demonstrates environmental leadership at a time when leadership is desperately needed. It is our sincere hope that this motion is adopted by the town, creating the necessary sense of urgency to enact policies that support our climate and ecosystem. The severity and inevitability of global climate change will be acknowledged by incorporating climate risk, mitigation, and resilience into all areas of local planning and decision-making.
