Follow up action to Air District's passage of Resolution
The Air District Board adopted our goal on November 6, 2013. Staff have begun to develop an implementation plan. In play now:
- Air District Advisory Council to study the Bay Area's energy future. Kickoff is hearing from Mark Jacobson and Jim Williams, the authors of two studies about how California can cut GHGs emissions by 2050. Public presentation is Thursday February 13.
- Air District staff will hold a public workshop on Regional Climate Strategy on Friday February 28.
- The Air District Board is set to adopt a Rule enacting an employer mandate for commute benefits mandate to offer commute benefits on March 19
We'll discuss strategy for participating in these public meetings at this BayCAP meeting.
We are tracking progress and offering proposals. We're also organizing teams of constituents to reach out to their BAAQMD Board members and win their ongoing support for decisive action. Eventually it will be up to the Board to pass regulations requiring deep emission cuts.
Additional Ttopics for this meeting:
- Climate Flag Update
- Feed in Tariff Proposal Update
We're also considering work on local City and County Climate Action Plans not yet finalized.
Lots to do, new people always welcome.
