Cool Hunter Mill District Initiative
The issue of climate change is no longer just a discussion of whether our climate is changing because of negative impact on the environment. The issue is what we will do to reduce our impact on the environment. We know there is much that can be done in our communities to protect the environment by reducing the impact of greenhouse emissions.
Fairfax County is helping to lead a national effort for counties to reduce global warming emissions 80 percent by 2050, an achievable average annual reduction of 2 percent. Although Fairfax County is committed in many ways to meet the greenhouse emission reduction goal, we realize that the problem is not just a problem for government. Each of us can and must do our part to protect the environment.
I am calling upon all Hunter Mill District residents, businesses and community organizations to join in the effort to be a Cool Hunter Mill District. Just small steps by each of us can translate to major impact on significant emissions reductions throughout the county.
We are not alone in this effort. Organizations in Hunter Mill District such as the National Wildlife Federation, Reston Association, Reston Environmental Action (REACT), Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, Town of Vienna, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, and many others are already making great strides.
I am asking you to join the Cool Hunter Mill District Initiative to help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. You can join the effort by completing this on-line survey. In addition, please sign up to receive additional information regarding environmental initiatives.
You can make a difference; thank you for helping to do your part to help cool our little corner of the planet.
