Most important, maybe, for us in Marin is the upcoming Zero Carbon Retreat, free to all, and sign up HERE.
Second, a new study published today in the Scientific Journal Nature Climate Science. The article details which policies available for decarbonization have the least negative impacts for small businesses and average households These are obvious concerns we are thinking about as we try to design solutions for Fairfax. You can access a SUMMARY of this report HERE (unfortunately, they do charge for this report, but the summary is free).
Finally, on the eve of the Biden inauguration, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected the Trump administration so called "Affordable Clean Energy Plan" which essentially rolled back the Obama regulations pushing to decarbonize the electricity generation in this country. (Learn more HERE). The effect of this decision is going to be to continue greening the electricity sector, which will help make it easier for normal people to green their lives without extensive changes OTHER than moving slowly and steadily towards electrification of our homes and transportation.
With a new administration will come new opportunities, no doubt, for accelerating needed change, the the Town's Climate Action Committee is watching closely to see how we, HERE, in our Town, can take advantage.
Thank you all for being part of this Town and part of the solution. Please go HERE (for MCE Deep Green) or HERE (for PG&E 100% Solar) to make the biggest difference you can now, AND save money.
