IMAGINE THE FUTURE.
SEE WHAT'S POSSIBLE...
No, really...see "What's Possible" ~
The question we all ask is,
What can I do?
I'm just one person -
how can anything I do
make a difference?"
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

Climate-Safe California campaign to achieve net-negative greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT?
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.
This website is designed for everyone: individuals, community groups, businesses, and government. At DRAWDOWN Bay Area you will find your first step, and then your next, and the step after that, connecting the power of people throughout the Bay Area.

We have to stop using fossil fuels and we have to draw down the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere that are warming our planet. That's all.
We need to get started!
We have less than ten years to dramatically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions & slow global warming, avoiding the worst impacts to our communities, our economy, and everything we love about the Bay Area. Sounds serious, doesn't it? and it is - but we believe that we can also have fun. We know we can do this, together, joining efforts throughout California, the nation, and the world, starting right here in the Bay Area.
If ever time was of the essence, it is now.
If ever a region could meet the challenge, it is the Bay Area.
