The Dubuque City Council met for a work session Monday and received an update on the city’s 50% by 2030 Community Climate Action and Resiliency Plan. Sustainable Communities Coordinator Gina Bell told the council that the issue has been on city’s radar for a long time. Bell says with the current pandemic going on and the economic downturn they can actually get worse if climate change is not addressed. The city’s plan includes mitigation of greenhouse emissions and better efficiency. A 2017 study by The University of California at Berkeley estimates the total annual economic impact of climate change for Dubuque by the year 2100 will be over 42-million dollars.
