Montclair Climate Action

About Us

Here at Montclair Climate Action, we know that there are many challenges ahead of us. Still, we believe that it’s not too late to act to save the climate. We formed MCA to encourage our government and our neighbors to take action so that, together, we can do our part to address the climate crisis. Every step we take, small or large, does a little bit more to reduce the damage we are inflicting on the world and to leave a better world for our children and grandchildren. MCA was formed out of concern over the climate crisis, but also a faith that Montclair can become a leader in its response to the climate crisis.

We work with the township government to promote policies that will drive the transition to renewable energy, such as adoption of town-wide renewable energy, town-wide composting, and purchasing of electric vehicles. We also work with the public to increase support for these policies and to encourage residents to do what they can for themselves, whether that is reducing waste, buying renewable energy, or taking public transportation. Through systemic change, we hope to create a town and a world where we can all live in a way that leaves a better world for our children and grandchildren.

"We've waited too long to deal with the climate crisis, and we can't wait any longer. We see it with our own eyes, we feel it, we know it in our bones. It's time to act."
Joe Biden
