James Island Climate Action

The first step towards solving a problem is acknowledging you have one -- and the climate crisis is going to be a big problem for James Island for decades to come. We think James Island, like every municipality in the Lowcountry, should officially recognize the reality of our heating planet and begin working on lowering their own contributions to the climate crisis. Luckily, some councilmembers in the Town of J.I. agree, and so the RESOLUTION REGARDING THE TOWN OF JAMES ISLAND’S BEST PRACTICES TO ADDRESS SEA LEVEL RISE AND CLIMATE CHANGE will be up for a vote on December 17th.
