NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PEOPLE'S CLIMATE RALLY

All Out for Sunday, September 21
Oakland's Lake Merritt Park!

(amphitheater at the Lake Merritt BART end of the Lake)

 

 

This historic NYC protest will lead up to the UN Climate Summit of world leaders. Tragically, more inaction or inadequate action can be expected. We want to show the world that the climate crisis can no longer be ignored, that the planet earth is burning, that massive and unprecedented measures must be undertaken now if humanity’s future is to be assured.

The People’s Climate March is shaping up to be one of the largest climate justice mobilizations in history, with organizers of the march setting a goal of getting a half million people to demonstrate in NYC.

While people all over the country are mobilizing for New York, a multitude of activists will undoubtedly be available to join us in Oakland. Let's make the  Northern California Solidarity action a great success.

 

Bay Area September 21 Coalition: Co-sponsors (Very initial list! Add your organization now!): 350 Bay Area; System Change Not Climate Change; United National Antiwar Coalition; Democratic Socialists East Bay;

BAAQMD Climate Protection Committee Meeting 9/29

Monday, September 29, 2014 at 09:30 AM · 4 rsvps
baaqmdlogosq128px.jpg

UPDATE: Presentation on UC Berkeley's Climate Readiness Institute

 

NEW: Come hear what UC Berkeley's new Climate Readiness Institute is doing. Is the main focus adaptation? What's the strategy to reduce emissions? Is the Institute engaged in advocating for UC Divestment? How does it coordinate with other climate focused work at UCB?

NEW: Will the Air District divest from fossil fuels?

ONGOING: In July Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) staff presented a Program update to the BAAQMD Climate Protection Committee.

We want the Air District to develop a Regional Climate Action Plan at least equal to its 2005 Ozone Strategy and to its 2012 report "Understanding Particulate Matter: Protecting Public Health in the San Francisco Bay Area."

In fact, achieving the GHG emission reduction goal is a primary path to reducing particulate matter emissions (responsible for about 1,700 premature deaths per year in the Bay Area) since they are both largely caused by combustion.

The "Regional Climate Action Strategy" laid out in the Climate Work Program appears to fall short of a true commitment to develop a plan to achieve all the emission reductions.

Show up September 29 at Climate Protection Committee meeting to press for faster, stronger action on GHGs in concert with action on particulate matter, for the sake of protecting both the climate and public health.
