These days, just about everyone knows there's a problem with the climate, and most are increasingly concerned.*
The question we all ask is, "What can I do? I'm just one person - how can anything I do make a difference?"
None of us can do everything, but we can all do something, and if everyone did something, imagine what 7.7 million people living in the Bay Area can accomplish if we work together, because...
everyone has a part to play
The challenge is real: in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 80% no later than 2030. That's less than ten years away!
We all need a place to start, and we're designing this website for everyone:
individuals, community groups, businesses, and government.
The good news is that the solutions already exist. Some solutions are easy and you can do them right now. Others are going to take all of us working together. They'll not only help the planet, but they'll help all of us: improving our health by improving the air we breathe, improving our economy by creating jobs and supporting businesses, and making all of our communities more resilient. It's about equity, the economy, AND the environment, because they're all connected.
And we need to get started! - we only have about ten years to dramatically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions -here in the Bay Area, throughout California, and around the world, in order to do our part to slow global warming.
So what part will you play?
