The City of Ann Arbor – and virtually every other government and institution in the area – is now debating ways to rapidly phase out fossil fuels, and to protect their most vulnerable people from the ravages of climate change.
We want to make the community’s support for climate action visible to all.
Through the generosity of the Wolfpack Climate Action Team, we now have Climate Voter signs to help make that support apparent. You can order your own Climate Voter sign by filling out and submitting this form, after which a sign will be delivered to your address.
The Ann Arbor City Council will vote May 18 on a proposal to fund the first year of the City’s ambitious carbon neutrality plan, designed to reduce the community’s net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by the year 2030. The target date follows the directive of the world’s preeminent climate scientists, who’ve determined that countries need to dramatically eliminate climate emissions in the coming decade.
City Council members need to know that their constituents support funding carbon neutrality. Please sign this petition to let them know you support the budget proposal.
On November 4, 2019, the Ann Arbor City Council unanimously passed a resolution which formally declared a “climate emergency,” and set 2030 as an “ambitious and achievable” carbon neutrality target. To follow up, City staff developed a carbon neutrality plan with the assistance of dozens of technical advisors, the input from hundreds of community partners and the support of expert consultants.
Now it’s time for City leaders to back up the strong words with strong actions. To let them know you support strong action, please order your sign, and sign the petition, today!
