Location: Online Zoom Webinar
If you’re wondering how to fight climate change, join climate experts and local policy leaders for a webinar Friday, January 14, 2022, noon -1:30 PM (PST). Panelists will address the implications of August’s “Code Red” warning from the IPCC, available technology to ‘electrify everything’ with clean energy, and the vital role that cities and counties play in implementing near-term actions. This is a must attend event for local elected officials, municipal staff and the public interested in working toward effective responses to the climate crisis.
Did you know?
About 90% of a typical Bay Area city’s greenhouse gas emissions come from burning natural gas in buildings and gasoline or diesel in cars and trucks.
There are clean zero-emission alternatives available today.
Most cities are not on track to meet emissions reduction targets in their own Climate Action Plans.
Please join us during your lunch hour to hear from a few of the best and brightest voices on climate as they discuss the following topics:
· The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) Sixth Assessment Report and why it was labeled a “code red for humanity” by UN Secretary-General António Guterres;
· A roadmap for what needs to be done to reduce the worst effects of climate change, which includes “electrifying (most) everything”;
· Strategies for local governments to enact necessary, yet sometimes resisted, policies and standards in order to meet this climate challenge;
· And a sprinkling of 1) the reality of the enormous effort that is needed, 2) hope, 3) inspiration, and 4) a glimpse of how good our future could be if we can find the courage and strength as individuals, communities, businesses, and governments to make the bold and transformational changes immediately.
We have a panel of experts and leaders who will get you thinking of new ways to support climate action in your city.
