The Redwood Chapter's Energy and Climate Committee 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 is open to all members of the Redwood Chapter, with approval of the Chapter ExCom The contact person is: Woody Hastings, email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Energy and Climate Committee is interested in such areas as:
- Energy polices: "Cool Cities", solar energy, community choice aggregation
- Deforestation and carbon sequestration:
- GHG emissions and alternative fuels
Information on broad Sierra Club climate change policies can be found here. Information on the Chapter's own active Energy and Climate campaigns can be found here.
How are we effective? The Climate Change Committee is backed by 11,000 Redwood Chapter Sierra Club members. We are a political force.
The new Sonoma County Environmental Center is located at 55A Ridgway Avenue in Santa Rosa (West of the 101 Freeway, two blocks North of College and 1 1/2 blocks West off of Cleveland Ave, South of Coddingtown).
