Proud that by a vote of 3-1, on December 16, 2020, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors approved by resolution a declaration of climate emergency in Sacramento County. The first step in tackling any challenge is to carefully identify the nature of it. With the Board’s affirmation of the declaration we are well on our way to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, but that won’t happen without your help. As has been said so many times, climate change is the greatest existential threat to our planet and her people, and we all have a responsibility to do our part to secure a healthy and safe future for our kids, their kids, and their kids’ kids, etc. Thanks again to my colleagues Supervisors Kennedy and Nottoli for their thoughtfulness and support for the resolution.
