Climate Change Resolution
Passed Unanimously by the Curry County Democratic Central Committee
At their regular meeting on January 16, 2016
We, the Curry County Democratic Central Committee (of Oregon), recognize that
Global climate change is a worldwide emergency and a matter of national security,
Human activities are a significant factor in climate change, and
Policies and actions to reduce the impacts of climate change are critical to the survival of our civilization.
We support science-based strategies on the local, state, national, and international level to reduce and reverse the degradation of the atmosphere, global food supplies, and ocean and fresh water resources. We recognize that sustainable energy technologies are imperative for long-term economic stability.
We urge our local, state and federal representatives to institute all necessary measures to reduce releases of greenhouse gases and mitigate their impact.
