The St. Paul City Council is poised to declare a climate emergency and join hundreds of communities across the country that have pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and raise awareness about global climate change.

All seven council members indicated they will vote Wednesday to support the measure, which calls on the state and federal governments to help cities develop climate action plans and build more sustainable infrastructure.

In the last year, Minnesota's capital city faced a heat wave, experienced dangerous air quality from forest fires and had water restrictions caused by a drought.
