The Redwood Chapter's Climate Change Committee (CCC) meets to discuss and to work to mitigate the impacts of global warming and human-induced climate change on our environment - from the San Francisco Bay to the Oregon border.
Global warming has the power to affect everyone on the planet. Rising sea levels, more powerful storms and the spread of terrible diseases are just some of the problems we are likely to face while energy prices continue to rise and supply shocks wreak hardship on our families and communities. We are all at risk unless we learn to curb our greenhouse gas emissions and end our addiction to fossil fuels.
The Sierra Club believes that we can save our planet while preserving our way of life, that instead of falling into despair, we should look to this challenge as an opportunity.
We have the technology today to implement real energy solutions that will move our country forward into a brighter energy future. These solutions can curb global warming, while at the same time building a clean, sustainable economy that lowers energy bills and creates thousands of new jobs.
Membership on the CCC is open to all members of the Redwood Chapter, with approval of the Chapter ExCom The contact person is: Margaret Pennington, 707-823-7434 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CCC is interested in such areas as:
- Energy polices: "Cool Cities", solar energy, community choice aggregation
- Deforestation and carbon sequestration:
- GHG emissions and alternative fuels
