Declaring a Climate Emergency in Pasadena

Tell Pasadena City Council to declare a climate emergency

On January 14, Arroyo Seco Foundation held a mayoral candidate forum on the environment. At the forum, all four candidates said they would support declaring a climate emergency. Tell our current City Council they need to do that now so that the climate crisis is considered in every decision they make.

A Declaration of Climate Emergency is a piece of legislation passed by a governing body such as a city council, a county board of supervisors, a state legislature, or even a national government. It puts the government on record in support of taking emergency action to reverse global warming. Resolutions vary around the world, with many governments including local climate impacts and new climate targets in their resolution.
