Wisconsin becomes 20th state to join climate alliance designed to uphold Paris accord

On Tuesday, February 12th, Wisconsin became the 21st state, when you include Puerto Rico, to join the United States Climate Alliance.  Members of the U.S. Climate Alliance are committed to taking real, on the ground action that urgently addresses the climate challenge.  For more information about the U.S. Climate Alliance go to their website.

Nearly 70 per cent of Americans, including the majority of people in every state, support the Paris Climate Agreement.  Not only have governors committed their states to the U.S. Climate Alliance in support of the Paris Climate Agreement, mayors of cities all across the U.S. have agreed to endorse this worldwide movement.  We would love to see the government officials of Josephine County throw their support behind the Paris Climate Agreement as well, and agree to adopt, honor, and uphold the goals of this agreement.

This should not be a partisan issue.  Protecting the health of our planet and saving it for our children, their children, and beyond should be the goal of every reasonable human being.  Please write to your majors, city councilmen and women, and county commissioners and ask them to pledge their support for this very important issue.  Ask them to sign our Citizens’ Environmental Pledge.

The Cave Junction City Council have already agreed to support these principles.  Thank them for that and urge the Grants Pass City Council and the Josephine County Commissioners to do the same.

If you haven’t signed the Citizens’ Environmental Pledge yet, we urge you to do so now.
