350 East Bay New Volunteer Orientation 1/22

Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 02:00 PM · 4 rsvps
Ecology Center in Berkeley , CA

We will be holding a special 350 East Bay orientation for new volunteers.  We invite you to join us if you are interested in working with us but want to know more about the work we are doing, how you can get involved and what’s coming up the next couple of months.

We have spots for 20 people in the room we are using, so please RSVP on this page or by sending Kathy an email  (dervin.kathy@gmail.com ).  At the orientation we will share information about fighting fossil fuel infrastructure, divestment, promoting clean energy, pushing for strong climate action at the local, regional and state level, educating and speaking with groups around the East Bay, film screenings, social media, fundraising, organizing rallies, working with many partner groups and allies and more. And we’ll also want to hear about your ideas and interests. This will allow more time for exploring what is going on in 350 East Bay/ 350 Bay Area and how you can get involved. If there is sufficient interest, we will hold another orientation in February. 

Note that the Ecology Center is located in the same building as the Sierra Club SF Bay Chapter office, across the hall.

Protect Alameda County's Water from Fracking Now-1/25

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 04:00 PM · 1 rsvp
Your computer

An oil company has proposed to inject oilfield wastewater into an aquifer near Livermore (the Greenville Sands), through a loophole in Alameda County's fracking ban, If state regulators and the US EPA let them proceed, this could poison a future source of drinking water, and put the Bay Area at increased earthquake risk.  Many Livermore and Bay Area residents spoke out against this proposal at a Department of Conservation Hearing on January 11th. Submit a written comment before January 25th to demand that state regulators STOP this dangerous proposal! 

The oil company uses a technique related to fracking known as "water flooding," for which it fought for (and won) an exception to the Alameda County fracking ban. The state Water Resources board must issue a recommendation to US EPA, who will then decide on whether or not to grant the exemption to the Safe Drinking Water Act to allow wastewater injection. Thanks to all those who attended a public hearing in Livermore on Jan 11th! You can submit written comments to the state Department of Conservation through email to: comments@conservation.ca.gov, or through postal mail to the following address: 

Department of Conservation 801 K Street, MS 18-05
Sacramento, CA 95814 ATTN: Aquifer Exemption. 

The comment period closes Wed, Jan 25th, 2017 at 5pm. Here are talking points for written comments, or writing letters to the editor of Bay Area newspapers. Here is a comment letter submitted by 350 Bay Area, as an example. 

UPDATE: You can send a letter to your legislator here, through the Center for Biological Diversity's action alert, asking them to advocate for protection of the Livermore Aquifer.

Transportation Campaign kick-off 1/28

Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 10:00 AM · 23 rsvps

In general the goal of the new Transportation Campaign is to achieve the State's goal of 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (per SB32 passed this year), with a focus on the transportation sector of the economy and on the Bay Area.

Meeting: Sat. January 28, 2017, 10 AM - 12:30 PM
              South Berkeley library/Tarea Hall Pittman branch
              1901 Russell Street, at Martin Luther King, Jr. Way (one block from Ashby BART station)

We have not worked out a detailed agenda, but we are considering presentations on three key areas, all of which are needed to achieve the 40% reduction goal:

  1. Cleaner Vehicles--achieving both the now-threatened EPA goal of 54.5 mpg for all new cars by 2025, and State efforts to support electric vehicles.  Cleaner trucks are also part of this.
  2. Reducing vehicle miles traveled by supporting public transit, walking, and biking, also known as Active Transportation.  This is closely tied to plans to build virtually all new housing in the Bay Area in transit oriented Priority Development Area.
  3. Climate Initiatives--parking policies, carpool encouragement, new technology, clean vehicle rebates, and more.

The Active Transportation efforts and the Climate Initiatives efforts are under the jurisdiction of the Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), although the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) is also playing an important supporting role (MTC and BAAQMD are located together at 375 Beale Street in San Francisco.  Cleaner vehicle regulations are under the control of the California Air Resources Board (CARB). 

We will try to accommodate people who want to phone in to the meeting (seeking tech support!)

Details on the agenda to follow.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
