SRJC to lead Climate Action Night Thursday, Apr. 29

On April 29th 350 Sonoma and SRJC Sustainability Committee presents Climate Action Night!

A Youth Presentation on Climate Legislation for 2021

Why is this so important for you?

Remember when Al Gore first introduced the dangers of Climate Change in his 2006 documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.” At the end of the documentary viewers are encouraged to take individual actions.

That was a good start, but in 2021 we need to do more. We need systemic infrastructure change from a fossil fuel based economy to one based on renewables. We need to sequester carbon where-ever possible, and we need accountability so we can reliably meet our carbon reduction goals. These type of changes only happen when government leaders at every level take up the cause and write good legislation that puts ideas and actions into law. This year a long list of climate bills are lined up to move through the Ca State Senate, Assembly and hopefully be signed into law by the Governor.

Your Representatives need to hear from you. They are already hearing from powerful lobbyists, and moneyed interests.

Register for this Webinar to support the work of these student leaders and to understand how you can help the state and nation transition to a Renewable and Equitable carbon neutral future.

On April 29 from 5:30-7:30 at a live Zoom event High School and College Student groups will present live on climate-related legislation and ordinances currently being considered at the national, state, and local level.

Includes presentations by students working with Recology and Sonoma Clean Power with information on local programs and efforts to reduce greenhouse gases.

Student slideshow presentations will also be available to view after April 29th on the Climate Action Night 2021 website.

California State Bills that address Climate Change include:

SB 596 - Cement and Concrete Production. Aims to reduce the carbon intensity of concrete used in the state by at least 40% from 2019 levels by 2030.

SB 27- Carbon sequestration: Aims to establish carbon sequestration goals for natural and working lands.

SB 260,-Climate Corporate Accountability Act

This bill would require reporting entities to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions in a manner that is easily understandable and accessible to residents of the state.
