Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Patrick McDonnell announced that 12 participants, representing 121 municipalities, have completed the 2021-2022 DEP Local Climate Action Program, conducting inventories of local greenhouse gas emissions and developing plans to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change risk in their communities. "Climate change is often discussed in terms of global temperature increase, sea level rise, and hundreds of millions of tons of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere," said Secretary McDonnell. "But the way people experience climate change is at the local level, and along with actions at the state, national, and international levels, actions in our communities are needed to reduce risk. DEP is committed to equipping municipalities in Pennsylvania to plan climate action and strengthen the sustainability of their communities." Since it began in 2019, the DEP Local Climate Action Program has provided training to 53 entities, representing approximately 380 municipalities across Pennsylvania.
