Declaring a Climate Emergency

In October 2019, 11,000 scientists from around the world declared clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency, we join them in their plea to secure a sustainable future.  In order to accomplish this, we must change how we live, and this entails major transformation in the ways our municipality functions and interacts with natural ecosystems. These scientists warn that the climate crisis has arrived and is accelerating faster than most scientists expected.  It is more severe than anticipated, threatening natural ecosystems and the fate of humanity.

We also hear and want to respond to the cries of youth around the world that demand action on the part of adults NOW before its too late.

We urge the town of Riverview to declare a Climate Emergency and join the more than 1,200 local governments in 25 countries, including the Cities of Edmundston and Moncton, NB who have declared a climate emergency and committed to action to drive down emissions at emergency speed.

A true solution to the Climate Emergency must account for all sources of greenhouse gases and the capacity of our ecosystems to regenerate the resources we consume and absorb the waste we produce.  The imbalance of our ecosystems is reaching a critical point.  We need to change course while we still have time.

Declaring a Climate Emergency would force us to work together and find concrete solutions for the problems we have created. We, citizens of the Town of Riverview are ready to step up and do our part to protect our environment.
