Climate change is a big issue. A reeeaally big issue. Recently we've been feeling the drastic affects of it with severe flooding, intense heat waves, extreme storms, persistent wildfires and the recent polar vortex. But just because it's a big issue  doesn't mean that only our federal government can take action on it. Instead, local governments will have to deal with the varying affects of climate change. This is why I am calling on my local government to endorse the Green New Deal. 

The Green New Deal is a proposed economic stimulus program that addresses not only climate change but economic equality as well. While that sounds complicated and political, the reality is that our government largely looks the other way on climate change, an enormous issue that will fall on my generation--gen z, to solve as we face most of the affects.

That's why I joined iMatter, a youth led climate action organization that has helped me write a resolution for my city council, to bring climate action to a local level. If adopted, my petition would affect Stillwater and larger politics by leading my city to formally endorse the GND and to create a goal of zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The resolution would also create a committee to implement solutions and help reach this goal.

By signing this petition you are helping achieve local climate action and endorsing the GND. Without this resolution my city will not take steps to mitigate climate change or become more involved in our state and national politics. Please help by signing the petition!
