BART Renewables Petition

203 signatures

The BART Sustainability committee developed a draft sustainability policy bay-area-rapid-transit-2009.jpgthat called for 100% renewables. The draft policy was adopted by the committee, but never passed by the board.

BART staff's electricity procurement plan calls for 50% renewables by 2030 and 90% by 2045.

"We the undersigned petition BART's Board of Directors to adopt the draft Sustainability Committee's 100% Renewable Energy policy. We encourage the Board and staff to lead on fiscally sound clean local self-generation, climate action and environmental justice."

Tell Governor Brown to ban fracking in California!

1,423 signatures
Sign our petition asking Governor Brown to lead efforts to prevent the climate change catastrophe of expanded drilling for dirty oil in California.

Governor Jerry Brown:

We recognize your strong commitment to protecting our climate and call on you to ban fracking in California.  Fracking accelerates climate disruption.  Fracking and the use of fracked oil will produce a huge increase in greenhouse gas emissions, virtually wiping out progress made by California toward emissions reduction.  I want California to move forward to clean, renewable energy and leave dirty shale oil in the ground.  New York, New Jersey and Vermont have already enacted bans or moratoriums on fracking.  California has always been the leader in fighting climate disruption.  We call on you to provide that leadership now and ban fracking to ensure our children and theirs will have a habitable earth to live on.
