Preparing for Climate Change

 

Because of the massive changes that Climate Change predicts for our area  (List of possible changes to our Rochester-area environment because of Climate Change (Keep checking back, this list is being constantly updated)) it is critical that our local representatives and authorities not only accept this change, but actually know how to adapt to it. 

Our public officials will be held accountable for taking action to protect the public from Climate Change

So, how do our public officials do that?  How does a community prepare for Climate Change?  Check here: 

Climate Adaptation — ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability USA "ICLEI is an international membership association of local governments dedicated to climate protection and sustainable development. The organization was established in 1990 when more than 200 local governments from 43 countries convened at the World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future, at the United Nations in New York. Established as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, the official name is now ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability.  " Local Action Moves the World — ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability USA
