Opportunities for Activism

In September 2017, the Montgomery County Council adopted Resolution 18-974, declaring a climate emergency and pledging to reduce the County’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2027, and by 100 percent by 2035. Meeting these goals will require radical changes in energy use, transportation, and consumption.
