Climate Stabilization Initiative - California Region
In July 2007, 12 counties across the United States, along with the Sierra Club, launched the Cool Counties Initiative to mobilize county governments to catalyze bold regional and federal action to address climate change. We are committed to work with our communities to reduce countywide greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050, an achievable annual average of 2 percent.
Alameda County's Board of Supervisors has challenged California's 57 other counties to join us in signing the Cool Counties Declaration.
We can make California the nation's first 100% Cool Counties state. The State of California has already committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050, giving California counties a window of opportunity to give input on implementation measures. Find out more about benefits of joining by reading Alameda County Board President Scott Haggerty's letter to California counties:
