RESOLUTION 6-E-17 A Resolution Declaring Support For And Commitment To The Club’s Climate Action Plan And The Overall Goals Of The Paris Agreement – That the club voted for on 7-20-17
WHEREAS, we all have a moral, economic, public health, and security imperative to act to protect our planet, fellow human beings, and future generations;
WHEREAS, we must act, and act together at every level, as individuals, as cities and towns, and as a global community; WHEREAS, climate action taken by cities in the United States and around the world can result in 40% of the pollution reduction needed globally to limit warming to only 1.5 degrees Celsius;
WHEREAS, the many benefits of climate action by cities and towns also address issues of inequality including the expanding wealth gap, the lack of housing, the accessibility of public transit, aging infrastructure, and other major urban challenges; and
WHEREAS, President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement puts millions of Americans at risk and communities and clubs like Reeva must step up to stop climate change.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by Reeva will work to achieve the goals in our Climate Action Plan and continue to support the overall goals of the Paris Agreement.
