2020 Wellfleet MA Annual Town Meeting, Article 25: “…The Town of Wellfleet recognizes that the climate emergency, driven by human activity including energy consumption and land use practices and leading to global warming, rising seas, deadly storms, dangerous heat waves, acidifying oceans, and melting ice sheets, poses an imminent threat to the health, safety and economic security of the residents of the Town. The Town of Wellfleet therefore adopts as its policy the objective of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions from human activity with and by the town to zero at the earliest technically and economically feasible time but no later than 2050, and directs the town that all officers, departments, committees, and representatives of the Town take such measures within the scope of their respective responsibilities and authority as may be necessary and prudent to facilitate such policy and objective.”

The motion carried.
