With the devastating health and economic consequences of climate change growing here and elsewhere, Sonoma County must act urgently. Guided by science, and in concert with the state, national and international communities, we can provide a livable climate for today’s youth and future generations.
Since 2013, the County has experienced severe droughts, devastating fires, continued floods and hotter temperatures year over year. Each of these unprecedented events is a reminder of the immediate impact of climate change. It is only in working to prevent and mitigate climate change we will avert the worst impacts of the climate emergency and build a stronger, healthier, fairer, and resilient Sonoma community for everyone.
