We've Got a Goal
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.
Let's Make Some Plans
At this meeting, we will discuss some more specific goals we can set for ourselves to help get transportation out of fossil-fuel vehicles and make healthy sustainable transportation available to all.

I was happy to hear one of the San Francisco speakers, member of the Board of Supervisors, John Avalos, not only support the demand to say no to the Keystone XL pipeline, but also call for San Francisco to divest from oil, coal, and gas company stocks.
I was also impressed by a comment from Washington DC where Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr. declared, "This is as important as when Dr. King marched in 1963,” he said, except more so. “It’s not just about equality. It’s about existence.”

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.
