Dave Cortese addresses UN Forum

Yesterday, I spoke at the United Nations in New York City at the inaugural Global Climate Restoration Forum because climate change is an issue that affects us all. Without immediate action, it will continue to affect every generation that inhabits our Earth. It’s time to demand action on global climate change.
Sea levels are rising. Ice caps are melting. Global temperatures are increasing. Forest fires blaze in our state and across the globe. Humanity itself is threatened.
These are all effects of global climate change. 

Last month, I introduced a resolution to declare a Climate Restoration Emergency in Santa Clara County that passed through the Board of Supervisors unanimously. Yesterday, I spoke at the United Nations in New York City, delivering a call to action to local governments around the world: we must band together and do all we can to address the climate crisis immediately.
