Climate Change Executive Order & Town Hall with Governor Steve Bullock

July 1, 2019

We were so excited to host Governor Steve Bullock’s announcement about his Climate Change Executive Order. Not only does this Executive Order enjoin Montana in the U.S. Climate Alliance, but it creates a council of Montanans to build out Montana-made recommendations in the following areas: (1) climate resilience, (2) climate mitigation, (3) climate science, and (4) research and technology.

Check out the full announcement and town hall below:

Here are the rad young Montanans who talked with Governor Bullock after his announcement:

Valan Anthos (Missoula, MT) is an environmental and climate activist who plans to attend law school in 2020.
Avery S. Old Coyote (St. Ignatius, MT) is a member of the Crow Nation and is also affiliated with the Flathead Nation.
Sula Duncan (Livingston, MT) is a junior at Park High School, musician, and outdoors enthusiast.

 


Commit our Elected Leaders to Climate Action

Our generation will be the most impacted by climate change. We are already witnessing dire fire seasons, rising coastlines, and unpredictable, dangerous weather. Corporations are leaving our generation to cope with the consequences of their actions on our environment as we’re trying to build careers and families. Without action, young people face decades of climate chaos.

That’s why we’re dedicated to being on the front lines of climate action.

That’s why we’re asking elected officials of every level of government to take action on climate:

  • Our Congressional Delegation: to have in-person conversations with Montanans about the Green New Deal and how to incorporate Montana solutions

  • Governor Steve Bullock: to sign onto the US Climate Alliance and commit Montana to take real action against climate change (DONE!)

  • the Montana Public Service Commission: to hold our energy companies accountable for investing in clean energy infrastructure

  • our City & County Governments: to commit to a rapid transition plan to source 100% of our community’s energy from clean sources
