ACTION Lobby the Climate Committee

Get Out the Vote for BayCAP Resolution Thursday September 12

The BayCAP Resolution must be passed by the Climate Protection Committee in order to go to the full Air District Board for a vote, possibly as soon as September 18.

We have a slim majority but not enough to feel secure.

ACTION - If you live in Alameda or Contra Costa County please contact the "Unknown" Committee members who represent you (they represent the whole county, not just their own town or district) and ask them to support the BayCAP Resolution.

If you live in Marin, San Francisco Sonoma or Santa Clara County, call or email your representatives' offices and leave a message of thanks!

TALKING POINTS for UNDECIDEDS

It's not enough for Air District staff to just do research, education and provide assistance to cities and counties developing local Climate Action Plans.

We want a Bay Area Climate Action Plan that will:

  • Update the Air District's Climate Protection program to take strong, regional action on climate.
  • Establish a Performance Standard to reduce Bay Area greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.
  • Develop a Regional Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan to achieve these reductions.

Current Tally:

YES: 6  NO: 0     UNKNOWN: 3
