From dangerous heatwaves combined with exceeding smog pollution, to destructive flash flooding events and toxic algae blooms closing our largest freshwater lakes, New Jersey is feeling the impacts of our climate and ecological emergency.
The increasing urgency of our climate crisis is why Governor Murphy campaigned on a plan to move New Jersey quickly onto 100% clean energy. Yet his draft Energy Master Plan (EMP) released last month fails to meet the urgency with which we must act, and in many cases makes the problems we face even worse.
From E. coli and PFAS in our water to dark money in our politics, there are lots of opportunities and issues to engage in in Oakland County. Come to our monthly meetings to learn about some of these issues and how you can take action. You will learn how to participate in our democracy and protect our water, as well as meeting other awesome people in your county!
Join us in Community Room A in the Waterford Twp Public Library.
In the next few decades, how and where Frederick County grows will have enormous impacts on improvement or decline in air and water quality, how much County residents contribute to climate change, and how the County adapts to the changing climate around us. Frederick County is in the process of writing the Livable Frederick Master Plan, a document to envision what the County will look like in 2040 and the steps we should take to get there. Download the document and read more about that process here.
