Ventura County Supervisor Wants County To Take Position On Climate Change

Jun 12, 2017

A Ventura County supervisor wants the county to take a stand on climate change.

In the wake of President Trump’s declaration that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate accord, some cities and counties have taken stands saying they are still supportive of the agreement.

Ventura County Supervisor Steve Bennett wants Ventura County to join that list. Bennett has proposed a resolution which says the county is still supportive of the intent of the accord, which calls on countries to commit to substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

County Supervisors are expected to look at the proposal when they meet Tuesday.
