Climate_9.21.2014_honk.jpgAbout This Group

350 San Francisco is an all-volunteer group formed in April 2013. We are activists committed to deep reductions in Greenhouse Gas emission in San Francisco, the Bay Area and beyond.  We work with 350 Bay Area and other groups to address the climate crisis and bring about environmental justice.

Get Involved

Join 350SF 

Support CleanPowerSF at Local Events   

Come to an All-Member Meeting

We have general meetings about 4 times a year, to get together, do some climate work and have some fun.  These meetings usually include:

  • A potluck
  • An orientation for new people (you!)
  • News from the campaigns and working groups 
  • Preparations for upcoming events (plans, banners, songs and costumes...)

Help Out of Town: fracking ban measure will be on the ballot in Monterey County this November. Join the campaign to help it win!

We also have Working Group Meetings on specific issues.

350SF Working Groups

 We currently have three working groups that meet regularly. To get involved, contact the working group leads.  

  • Outreach

    The goal of the 350SF Outreach Group is to educate people about climate change and encourage their involvement in the climate movement. Our efforts include spreading the word about and distributing fliers at climate events in SF and community outreach through special programs. Media and community relations, graphics and social networking skills are especially helpful.

  • SF Divestment

    We are part of a national movement that urges governments to withdraw their investments from fossil fuel corporations. In April 2013, we helped convince the SF Board of Supervisors to pass a unanimous resolution urging the city to purge its pension fund of investments in these corporations. After we presented our case before the Retirement System Board, they voted to take the first steps in the divestment process. More recently they took the second of the three steps in their process, and we are now working to keep public pressure on the Board, which we hope will lead to complete divestiture. They have divested from direct investments in coal companies. Not only do we desire to live in a city unbeholden to the fossil fuel industry, but we believe that SF can be an example to other cities throughout the nation and the world. For next meeting times visit our Facebook page at FossilFreeSF. Our google group is divestsf

  • Clean Energy

    350SF is working along with other organizations to support the launch of CleanPowerSF, a comprehensive renewable energy transformation plan for San Francisco. CleanPowerSF would see the city sell 50-100% renewable energy to customers (for roughly the same price as PG&E), while using that customer revenue to finance a robust build-out of renewable energy right here in the city.  With sufficient investment, up to half our energy load could be local, distributed, and renewable within 10 years.

  • We also have a Coordinating Committee that meets on the third Sunday of each month to handle the routine business and core functions of the group.  

Some Past Events 

Memorial

Remembering the Victims of Climate Change

Brown and Green: South Asian Americans for Climate Justice partnered with 350 SF in a march and candle-lighting ceremony to remember the thousands killed by the summer's extreme heat events due to climate change.  Photographs and memorial songs highlighted the human cost of climate change, especially to the most economically vulnerable people.  Supporters included Northern California Climate Mobilization, Citizens Climate Lobby, Sunflower Alliance, Flood the System, and Interfaith Power and Light.

I share many of your views, but may I ask you what alternative energy sources that you support. I have spent the last 7 years pounding the meme in support of new energy paradigms. See what I’m, talking about @pmaher_art. I’ve collected 61 contenders in the race to a 21st century energy paradigm. I favor LENR, Photoswitching, Thermophotovoltaics, and all of the scalable new energy producing devices that have risen out of Condensed Matter Physics, and especially what superconductors.org is doing with high temp superconductivity.

Do we want to remain attached to huge electrical grids? I certainly don’t. Here’s something that I hope you have heard about.

The interface between lanthanum aluminate (LaAlO3) and strontium titanate (SrTiO3) is a notable materials interface because it exhibits properties not found in its constituent materials. Individually, LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 are non-magnetic insulators, yet LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces exhibit electrical conductivity,1 superconductivity,2 ferromagnetism,3 large negative in-plane magnetoresistance,4 and giant persistent photoconductivity.5 The study of how these properties emerge at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface is a growing area of research in condensed matter physics.

and one more.

The Armed Services Committee has asked the DOD to brief them on the current state of LENR as it relates to the military. This is supposed to happen by the 22nd of September 2016
