Albemarle is a Cool County

According to Charlottesville Tomorrow “the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors has adopted a resolution that commits the County to a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050. That would mean the County would have to achieve average annual reductions of 2 percent.”

“The resolution is part of the Cool Counties initiative sponsored by the Sierra Club. Fairfax County adopted the resolution earlier this year, joining other major metropolitan areas across the country.”

“Albemarle County is committed to doing its part to mitigate climate change. The resolution was passed unanimously. To comply, the County will now have to take an inventory of all the greenhouse gases it is responsible for.”

Good job Albemarle County! I hope that other cities and counties in the region and across the country will follow your lead and reduce their carbon emissions.
