South Bend community leaders are discussing possible local action on climate change.
City leaders say they are considering drafting an ordinance that would work to reduce emissions and get the city closer to being a more sustainable place.
On Monday night, Feb. 18, the council chambers were packed with people who wanted to see action against climate change, according to the South Bend Tribune.
City leaders said drastic changes, from longer summers to higher water levels in the St. Joe River, are possible if action isn’t taken.
A recent study suggests South Bend could see a warm up of as many as ten degrees by the end of the century.
Another meeting, set for Feb. 27, will discuss a reduction of carbon emissions.
