I hope that the Healdsburg City Council will address the threat of climate change by passing a Climate Emergency Resolution and developing a strong plan for its implementation. Across Sonoma County, an online petition has been launched to encourage elected officials to declare a Climate Emergency. If you would like to add your name to the petition, please do so at change.org. Search for “Support Equitable Climate Emergency Action in Sonoma County” and join almost 2500 signatories as of September 22. According to the Climate Mobilization Project, 221 million people across the world are now represented by more than 1000 local governments that have declared a Climate Emergency. Over 7000 colleges and universities have also joined the struggle. You can also write the members of the City Council or better yet, attend the October 7 meeting and let them know why you think this is urgent.
