Reading part of Amanda Gorman’s poem, “Earthrise,” Commissioner Ozias shared his vision for our county by recognizing our common cause and emphatically explaining how the people’s government must be part of the solution.
Many changes are happening already to shrink our county’s carbon footprint and prepare for climate change, Ozias noted at the Earth Day gathering in Port Angeles. The largest-ever climate adaptation project in the county, the Dungeness Off Channel Reservoir, will provide a buffer when the Olympic snowpack becomes insufficient; Clallam Transit will be adding electric buses; and the new Emergency Operations Center will have solar power generation.
Ozias wrapped up his speech with a rousing call for all of us to take meaningful action, both as individuals and in the groups we associate with.
