According to the City’s Climate Change Survey, 68% of community members have been personally impacted by the effects of climate change. The Climate Action Plan is a community plan. There is emphasis on municipal and individual action to reach the goals set out in the Plan. Just as climate change is a global issue with local impacts; local action can have a global impact. There is a level of accountability at stake here as well. The United States is one of the top emitters of greenhouse gases in the world. There is a high level of responsibility for the United States and its residents to reduce their share of emissions and decrease the impacts of climate change at the local and global level.
