Hopefully somebody will livestream again on Ventura County Climate Hub Facebook page.
Millions are upset about Trump’s choice to make America a rogue nation regarding climate action. Governors and Mayors are mobilizing to honor the Paris to reduce total emissions from 2005 levels by at least 26% by 2025.
Local action can mobilize OUR state, county and cities to protect the climate by stopping new fossil fuel projects and moving to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible.
· Unless and until we get Community Choice Energy, our county and cities’ renewable energy goals will be hard to achieve. A technical study that will inform the county and all ten cities what kind of new utility we will have. Linda Hillman will report.
· Unless and until we strengthen the state Cap and Trade program, state emissions reduction goals will be hard to achieve. Jan Dietrick and Todd Shuman will describe how SB775 addresses weaknesses of the current plan and how individuals can support Senators who are more determined than Governor Brown for emissions reductions with environmental justice.
· Unless and until Ventura County and it s cities create Climate Action Plans that are ambitious and well-funded to meet measurable, technically feasible goals, we will not be ABLE to do our part to uphold the Paris Accord.
