Thumbs-up to the Climate Citizen Advisory Committee, the Brendle Group, the Rocky Mountain Institute and Fort Collins City staff for developing the 2015 Climate Action Plan (CAP) Framework. Another thumbs up to City Council for unanimously approving the new CAP on March 3rd, which puts us on the path toward reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. That decision helped solidify the city’s position as a leader in the effort to address global climate change. Hopefully, the 2015 CAP will inspire other cities to adopt similarly ambitious climate goals.
