My first brief comments asked them to consider themselves — in every action they take — part of the solution rather than just bystanders in this challenge, truly an all-hands-on-deck situation. They meet twice a month, and I plan to address them at least once a month. I believe either by their rules of procedure or just tradition, they do not immediately respond. If they are motivated to act, there are things a county commission can do vis-a-vis climate change.If you think this is a good idea to do in other counties, even if you do not have an in-county organization that can do this, you can probably find in most (many?) counties (and cities?) an individual who is as concerned as I am, willing to do a little research (you could probably help there), and willing to stick his/her neck out slightly. All they (we) need to be is informative, reasonably articulate, and persistent. By the way, it looks like our local newspaper (The Antrim Review) is going to publish my comments as letters-to-the-editor. What do you think?
