WISC EDITORIAL AGENDA 2013 - OUR CLIMATE - DANE COUNTY ACTION COUNCIL

03/14/13

We placed Our Climate atop our editorial agenda for this year to draw attention to two especially important pieces of the discussion – the first being the now irrefutable science of climate change as fact, and second, efforts to reverse it. Dane County executive Joe Parisi’s creation this week of a county Climate Change Action Council responds to both.


The mere existence of the council and its mission of making sure county government is prepared for inevitable weather extremes send a compelling message of the seriousness of the issue. But even more important is Parisi’s required analysis of how effective county-led efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions have been to date. That accountability is something we need at every level of government, business and consumer use. Acknowledgement and action: exactly what we had in mind.
