Support Local Clean Energy at Al. Cty BoS 8/2

Tuesday, August 02, 2016 at 09:30 AM

Alameda County is moving forward quickly with establishing a community choice energy (CCE) program. A community choice energy program would provide a public, not-for-profit alternative to PG&E to provide electricity services in the county. 

At their meeting on August 2nd, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors (BoS) will vote on whether or not to form a joint powers authority to establish a Community Choice energy program for Alameda County. They will also decide whether to approve the Joint Powers Authority agreement (the foundation document for the Community Choice program) which will be proposed to all participating cities.

If you live in Alameda County, send a message to the county Supervisors asking them to make the most of this window of opportunity when the program is being developed to shape a program that will create local jobs and cut greenhouse gas emissions by prioritizing the development of local renewable resources! You can send a letter to the Supervisors through this email action alert developed by the Sierra Club. 

There will be a press conference by Local Clean Energy Alliance at 8:30am before the meeting.

Soil Not Oil Conference 8/5

Friday, August 05, 2016 at 08:00 AM · 11 rsvps

Deforestation, erosion and industrial agriculture cause the decay of soils and in consequence, the release of carbon and other GHGs into the atmosphere. Non-sustainable management of soils through industrial agriculture causes over 30% of planetary carbon emissions. In fact, within industrialized nations up to 1/3 of the total global warming effects have been attributed to an unsustainable food production system. The 2016 Soil Not Oil International Conference links the fight to stop the extraction of fossil fuels while offering soil based solutions to decarbonize the atmosphere and mitigate climate change, exploring traditional, local, organic and sustainable practices of food production. We are committed to restore ecosystems, honoring nature and biodiversity.

The Soil Not Oil International Conference has been inspired in the work of Dr. Vandana Shiva and her book Soil Not Oil, Environmental Justice in an Age of Environmental Crisis

 

What can you expect?

Over 100 speakers, including, scientists, farmers, environmentalists, elected officials, grassroots organizers, food justice advocates and community members from all backgrounds. Last year 1000 people registered for this event, this year we are expecting more.
