Communities must combat climate change
I applaud the efforts being made by municipalities in British columbia to forge a united front to confront the threat of climate change by demanding accountability from the oil and gas companies for their contribution to climate change.
no one can really blame these municipalities for taking an activist stance on climate change. after all, municipalities are at the forefront when it comes being impacted by climate change, such as flooding, forest fires and destruction caused by increasingly severe weather changes. The key for these municipalities is to ensure that they absolutely understand the scientific facts behind climate change and being able to articulate and educate companies as well as their constituents on the negative impacts of climate change and to develop strategies to mitigate them. other communities across canada should follow in their footsteps and take up the challenge of confronting climate change intelligently within their communities.
