Please join us as we collect petitions to keep coal out of the old Oakland Army Base. We will go out at 12noon on Saturday, May 23, Sunday, May 24, & Monday, May 25th.
Phil Tagami, the developer of the base, is in talks with four counties in Utah to sign contracts which would allow them to export 5-6 million tons of coal/year through Oakland. They have a deadline of the end of June to sign, so the heat is on! Currently no coal is going through Oakland. It is much easier to keep coal out than to try to get it removed if it gets in. So join us to keep Oakland coal-free!test
Phil Tagami, developer of the old Oakland Army Base, is in talks to sign contracts with four counties in Utah to export 5-6 million tons of coal through Oakland/year. This would have devastating effects on already disproportionately impacted West Oakland, and would be devastating for climate. Please pack the house at this informational forum to show Tagami that Oakland won't take coal!test

Please join us to:
1. Ask the Stationary Source Committee, chaired by Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia, to require that the Refinery Rules include GHG emission reductions and enforceable emission caps.
2. Ask the Stationary Source Committee to endorse a 100% clean energy proposal for the Wood Smoke rule. The Air District is contemplating $1-2 million in subsidies to help people change out dirty equipment. No subsidies should be given to any wood burning or natural gas devices.
3. Ask the Stationary Source Committee to direct staff to amend the Permit Rules this year to remove the GHG exclusion, cap, and begin reducing climate destroying pollution from Bay Area industry.
Please add to the chorus of voices demanding that our regional Air District, take bold action on climate. Hiding behind state climate law is no excuse to not take local & regional action. In fact local & regional action is leading the way!
We need big turnout for this one. Support those speaking during public comments or make you own. Organizers will provide with talking points.
Time is running out for global climate action. Join us to plan and network among Climate Justice groups for actions leading up to the Paris COP21* UN climate talks. This is the kick-off planning meeting aimed to coordinate various actions leading up to the scheduled Paris UN COP21 climate meeting (Nov 30 – Dec 11) and promote a collective ownership of proposed mass actions. We are activists from various groups who organized the Northern California People's Climate Rally in Oakland on September 21, 2014, in solidarity with the People's Climate March in New York on the same date. Please invite other groups as you see fit.
*COP21 is the 21st "Conference of the Parties" held by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.test

On Friday, June 12, the Investment Committee of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) meets in West Sacramento. We will rally at CalSTRS headquarters to urge that the committee begin the process of divestment from fossil fuels.
It’s time for CalSTRS to fulfill its stated “Investment Policy for Mitigating Environmental, Social, and Governance Risks." That policy calls for the fund, before investing in a company, to examine how that company "is dealing with the impact of climate change, including whether the government [of the company] is taking steps to reduce its impact, exacerbating the problem, or oblivious to the risk."
Clearly, companies that traffic in oil, coal, and gas are exacerbating the problem of climate change, and they are oblivious to the risk. Therefore, CalSTRS should not invest in such companies. For the sake of our teachers and for the sake of our children, we urge the Investment Committee and the board to purge its investments of fossil fuels. It is safer for the CalSTRS portfolio—it is safer for the Earth—to divest.

The Alameda County Planning Commission is holding a second Public Hearing on a proposed fracking ban. They postponed the date once again. The hearing was moved from March 2nd to April 6th, then to May 4th, & now it is scheduled for September 8th. Word is, opposition to the proposed ban is mounting. We need high turnout.
E&B Natural Resources, the only active well operator in Alameda County, has objected to any limitation on its operations despite declaring it has no plans to practice fracking on its current wells in the County. Under the proposal, E&B would not be allowed to drill new wells, though it would continue to possess a valid permit allowing the company to extract oil from its existing wells. Also coming out against the proposed changes were the California Cattlemen’s Association and Californians for Energy Independence.It is important for the public to be there every step of the way.
Please join us to speak during public comment or to support those who are speaking.
