Michigan Climate Challenge
The issue of global climate change and its impact on our state and local communities cannot be addressed solely at the national or international level. Indeed, much can be accomplished through simple straightforward actions at the individual or local level.
Each and every local government official, small business owner and citizen plays an integral part in recognizing the causes of climate change, and then committing to specific actions to reverse those changes and minimize the risks associated with them. The Michigan Climate Challenge provides the opportunity and resources to make those commitments and move forward in a positive, proactive path to address climate change.
However, because climate change is vast and global, it is often hard for any of us as citizens to believe we can make a difference.
As citizens, we can embrace this moment as an opportunity to make a difference. We can find solutions that reverse our contributions to climate change and move us away from our dependence on out-of-state energy supplies and grow a clean energy economy which will attract new investments and jobs into our state.
