David Schonbrunn of Transdef (link below) will tell us about their efforts to push regional planning agencies such as MTC to achieve their GHG reduction goals.
The State's goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% reduction by 2030, according to SB32 passed this year. About a third of the emissions come from the transportation sector. Our goal is to make the GHG reductions in transportation happen.
Emissions standards and public transportation are under attack by the Trump administration. The state of California must be prepared to defend them.
At this meeting, we will discuss bills in the State Senate now that will keep us moving toward climate sanity, and how we can support them.

Thanks for RSVP'ing for Summer Heat Richmond.
Please indicate the groups that you would like to receive information on:
Tar Sands are a bad idea. We can make sure that the Bay Area is not part of this problem. and ensure that area refineries don't process any materials from tar sands mining operations. Help us convince the cities of Richmond and Martinez to prohibit the dirty, destructive and climate-disruptive tar sands within their city limits.
We request that the city councils of Richmond, Hercules, Benicia and Martinez pass city ordinances to prohibit the transport, processing and refining within city limits of any materials obtained or derived from tar sands of any source. We request that all other city councils in the Bay Area pass resolutions in support of these ordinances.
Put global warming warning labels on gas pumps! The warning can include a link to the local Climate Action website. This is an awareness-raising action. Cigarettes have warning labels, why not gas pumps? Ask Bay Area City Councils to pass a City Ordinance to put warning labels on Bay Area gas pumps. For example:
To the Bay Area Local Governments:
We urge our city council to require warning labels on gas pumps to:
- Warn consumers that burning gasoline is causing global warming,
- Inform people that our city has a Climate Action Plan to reduce CO2 in general and gasoline use in particular.
