“Climate change is the paramount challenge of our generation,” said County Council member Larry Phillips. “It poses immediate threats to our resources and security and is an existential threat to our children and grandchildren. King County has a decade of increasing leadership in addressing climate change, and now our updated Strategic Climate Action Plan puts us once again at the forefront of climate action. I am proud to share our work on climate change with other Local Climate Leader's Circle delegates at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris in December.”
