The Village of Schuylerville is joining a number of communities across the state in a pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate.

In a resolution passed on Jan. 9, the Village Board said it "believes that climate change poses a real and increasing threat to our local and global environments and is primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels."

As a result, it adopted the New York State Climate Smart Communities pledge, which includes 10 elements:

• Build a climate-smart community

• Inventory emissions, set goals, a plan for climate action

• Decrease energy use

• Shift to clean, renewable energy

• Use climate-smart materials management

• Implement climate-smart land use

• Enhance community resilience to climate change

• Support a green innovation economy

• Inform and inspire the public

• Engage in an evolving process of climate action
