Local group stresses action on climate change

Red River Valley Climate Action was founded after the September 2019 climate strikes took place

FARGO, N.D. — A recently-founded group in the metro wants local politicians to take action on climate change.

Red River Valley Climate Action hosted a meeting at the Red Raven Espresso Parlor in Fargo to discuss strategies on getting the group’s message heard.

An upcoming goal for the group is to campaign for a climate emergency declaration in Fargo-Moorhead.

One member says the issue of climate change is a bipartisan one.

“It seems that everybody realizes that the science of climate change, there’s a consensus that this is a real problem. This is real. That’s not really up for debate anymore, and everybody wants to have a healthy community and a livable future for our children,” says Neva Francis.

The next group meeting will be held February 2nd.
