Climate Action 2050: What’s Really Needed to Achieve Local and State Goals–Wed., Nov. 7

Come to an event co-sponsored by the Sierra Club Bay Chapter: a presentation by the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, a group of local non-profits, educational institutions, businesses, faith-based organizations, public health organizations, neighborhood groups, government agencies and committed individuals, all working together to implement the Berkeley Climate Action Plan.

As a community and as a state, we have ambitious targets for reducing the emissions that cause global warming. Local Climate Action Plans and California’s landmark legislation, AB 32, offer bold models for the rest of the nation. But what will it actually take to achieve those targets? What strategies and actions will make the biggest differences? What role must our community play? How do local and state efforts intersect?

What: climate-change leaders Timothy Burroughs (city of Berkeley climate-action coordinator) and Wade Crowfoot (deputy director, Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, and former director of climate-change initiatives to Gavin Newsom) provide the latest analysis of the path to 2050.

When: Wednesday, November 7, 7 – 9 pm

Where: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave., near Dwight Way, Berkeley (across the hall from the Sierra Club Bay Chapter’s offices, map). Wheelchair-accessible.
