  Advocate for a cap on Bay Area GHG emissions, and faster, stronger action to reduce GHGs.

  Focus: Regional Boards.

Agenda

1. Updates

  • California CleanCARE proposal to fund and create distributed generation in low income communities.

    • Caps must be enforceable.
    • GHG reductions must be included.
    • Set up air monitoring at known hot spots.
  • Air District Wood Smoke Rule- proposed amendments and collaboration with health orgs
    • Wood burning emits CO2 and black carbon, a strong driver of global warming, as well as particulates and toxics. Most serious Bay Area air pollution in winter months.
    • BAAQMD Board members are concerned about wood smoke pollution from homes without access to natural gas or propane for space heat.
    • Collaborative Action:
      • 100% clean alternatives in the Wood Smoke Rule amendments (mini=split heat pumps for homes with wood burning as sole source of heat).
      • Insist on access to maps of wood smoke pollution exposure.
      • Restrict subsidies to 100% clean energy solutions.
      • Set up air monitoring at known hot spots.
      • Create a dedicated enforcement Wood Smoke Rule enforcement program.
