Issaquah is poised to join a regional effort to address climate change.

Mayor Ava Frisinger is due to sign the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration pledge Tuesday. The pledge binds local governments to address climate and sustainability efforts.

Frisinger — plus Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride and Shoreline Mayor Keith McGlashan — plan to sign the pledge to open the Green Tools Government Confluence at Pickering Barn.

King County Executive Dow Constantine launched the partnership in June to enhance the effectiveness of local governments’ climate change and sustainability projects and programs.

The collaboration is focused in outreach, coordination, solutions, and funding and resources.

The outreach effort is meant to develop, refine, and utilize messaging and tools for climate change outreach to engage decision makers, other cities and the public. The collaboration component is set up to adopt consistent standards, benchmarks, strategies and overall goals related to responding to climate change.

The effort is also designed to help local governments to secure grant funding and other resources to support climate related projects and programs.

    Very funny, this is the same administration that just cut down an acre of mature evergreen trees on public property because they wanted to market it.

    So much for climate change…walk the talk people!
