UPDATE: Bar Harbor Town Council declares "climate emergency"

BAR HARBOR, Maine (WABI) - Bar Harbor Town Council declared a climate emergency.

Florida is facing a climate crisis and Governor DeSantis recognized it from the moment he took office, announcing he’d appoint the state’s first-ever Chief Resilience Officer just two days into his term. (MGN)

This means working towards town-wide decarburization by 2030.

People from MDI High School, College of The Atlantic, and community members spoke out about this matter at a town council meeting on Tuesday night.

The Council will look at steps on how to proceed with the Climate Emergency Action Plan.

Portland recently just passed a similar proposal. Bar Harbor is second in the state to do so.
