Climate Change

We need to respond to climate change with the urgency it demands. 

We know that climate change is going to get worse and cause problems all over the country and the world.  We need to reduce our contribution to climate change by cutting greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the inevitable by developing adequate local food production and distribution systems that use the open land we have without cutting down forests. This would make Vermont communities more resilient and reduce emissions  of methane and nitrous oxide emissions, as both are more  potent greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide and methane dissipates much more quickly. We can seek guidance from groups who have fully researched the climate change problem and are ready to propose solutions that don’t include nuclear power or building more biomass systems.
