County and Climate Change

islands-climate-resilience-logoIslands Cli­mate Resilience (ICR) is a group of islanders work­ing to improve our resilience to cli­mate change through a com­bi­na­tion of outreach/education and strate­gic plan­ning. We believe that cli­mate change is hap­pen­ing, and that it needs to be addressed both local­ly and globally.

To ensure that cli­mate change issues are addressed in the 2016 Coun­ty Coun­cil cam­paign, we asked each of the can­di­dates to pro­vide writ­ten respons­es to our  Coun­ty Coun­cil Can­di­dates’ questionnaire.

We have received respons­es from two can­di­dates: Bill Wat­son (Res­i­den­cy Dis­trict 1) and Rick Hugh­es (Res­i­den­cy Dis­trict 2). No respons­es were received from Bob Jar­man (Res­i­den­cy Dis­trict 1) or Michael Dur­land (Res­i­den­cy Dis­trict 2). The ques­tions and answers are post­ed on our web­site and Face­book page.

We encour­age all island vot­ers who are con­cerned about cli­mate change issues to con­sid­er the can­di­dates’ respons­es (and lack of respons­es). We thank Bill Wat­son and Rick Hugh­es for respond­ing to the Islands Cli­mate Resilience Coun­ty Coun­cil Can­di­dates’ questionnaire.
