|Support a cap on refinery emissions|
Activists will comment on the Air District's draft Petroleum Refining Emissions Tracking Rule on July 31st. Our lobbying of the Board coupled with our presence at this important meeting will help ensure that this rule actually furthers the new climate goals: it needs to be sufficiently protective (no increase in pollution) and proactive (applies to projects currently under proposal). A cap on emissions is essential for meeting our greenhouse gas reduction goals and protecting the health and safety of Bay Area residents, in particular those folks living on the refinery fence lines. Let's pack the Board Room on the 31st!test
We are working with colleges, universities, public pension funds, cities, counties, and faith-based organizations. We ask that they immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies and divest completely within five years.
To be buzzed in, follow the prompts on the box.
The meeting will include reports on two important events in September: the Citizens' Climate March (9/20-21) and the University of California Regents' vote on divestment (9/16). We will also share updates on our current divestment campaigns: CalPERS and CalSTRS, UC students and alumni, faith-based organizations, and cities and counties.test
Will new California Public Utilities Commission policies promote rooftop solar?
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is developing a "successor tariff" to replace the current net-metering program, expiring in 2017.
Net metering is how homeowners with rooftop solar are credited for the energy they produce. The new program could be a big turning point for rooftop solar in California.
