BayCAP Meeting 12/15

BAYCAPLogo_TransparentBGcropped150x136.png  Advocate for a cap on Bay Area GHG emissions, and faster, stronger action to reduce GHGs. Focus: Regional Boards.

Ending reliance on combustion for heat and power is how we reduce GHGs, toxics and particulate matter (responsible for about 1,700 premature deaths per year in the Bay Area).

The Air District's Climate Action Work Program needs to clarify that the first step in reducing Bay Area GHGs is to cap local emissions. The next step is to adopt regulations requiring clean technologies to replace combustion technologies.

Now that we have the Air District's attention, the BayCAP campaign will begin advocacy to get the Metropolitan Transportation Commission to also commit to deep reductions in carbon pollution.

New people always welcome.
