"We are in a climate emergency with impacts already killing people and destroying ecosystems," said Amelia Southern Uribe, president of Zero Hour Arkansas. "There are 900-plus local councils globally that have declared a climate emergency and are developing climate emergency action plans for their community. These plans are providing the first ray of hope in an otherwise frightening time. It's time for Fayetteville to set a trend in Arkansas and declare a climate emergency."
