Combating Climate Change
Act locally, lead globally
Global climate change is a major threat that requires immediate action. As a community, Arlington County has the opportunity and responsibility to lead the way in adopting innovative technologies and practices that address this crisis and serve as a model for other municipalities and local governments around the world.
Arlington County should transition its fleet vehicles, including buses, from gas to electric. Electric buses emit zero emissions and can significantly reduce our community's overall greenhouse gas emissions. By replacing our fossil fuel-powered buses with electric vehicles, we can demonstrate our commitment to addressing climate change and set an example for other local governments to follow.
Overall, it is crucial that Arlington County takes bold action to address the challenge of global climate change. By adopting technologies and practices that reduce our carbon footprint and set an example for others to follow, we can make a meaningful contribution to solving this global crisis.
