BayCAP in Redwood City 12/12


   Cut Bay Area carbon pollution here and now

   Lobby focus: Bay Area Air Quality Management District

BayCAP Vision

Transform the Bay Area's energy and economic infrastructure to get off fossil fuels and bring healthful air and a healthy environment to all.

Campaign summary

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is the lead agency responsible for controlling 50-60% of Bay Area greenhouse gas emissions. The Air District’s Mission is “to protect and improve public health, air quality and the global climate.” We petitioned the Air District to use its authority to:

  • Declare that catastrophic climate disruption is an escalating emergency
  • Act on its mission by adopting aggressive programs by July 2014 to reduce Bay Area greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

The Air District adopted a Resolution encompassing our goals on November 6, 2013 and staff have begun to develop programs to cut climate pollution. Eventually, emission reduction regulations must be adopted through BAAQMD Board votes. Sustained public input will be critical to success because large industries will oppose our aims.

We need to win the ongoing support of BAAQMD Board members.

We're looking for people who want to get to know their BAAQMD Board representatives, County Supervisor Carole Groom and Daly City Council Member Carol Klatt.

Please join us at the campaign's first meeting in San Mateo County to include:

  • BayCAP campaign presentation - Bay Area GHG emissions and avenues to reduce them
  • Discuss climate action work already happening in San Mateo County
  • BayCAP proposals for Air District action
  • Begin organizing constituents to contact BAAQMD Board members San Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom and Daly City Council Member Carol Klatt to win their support for our proposals.
