Climate Smart Saugerties
Climate Change is at a crisis stage. Urgent action is needed. Our planet is experiencing more intense heat, bigger storms, longer droughts, increased flooding, raging wildfires, melting glaciers, and rising sea levels. And yes, man-made greenhouse gases are causing our climate to change. That’s why the Saugerties Town Board took the Climate Smart Communities Pledge back in 2009, the first town in Ulster County to do so. The Town Board also created a Green Energy Task Force whose work successfully resulted in energy efficiencies and greenhouse gas reductions. In March 2018, the Town Board renewed its efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. It appointed the Saugerties Conservation Advisory Commission as a task force to help Saugerties continue to honor its pledge, and set new goals – further reduction of greenhouse gases and certification by New York State as a Climate Smart Community.
