We’ll make it easy for you to comment on climate issues being discussed by our local and state electeds.  You’ll be given talking points for the issue and we’ll let you know how to send your comments in.  Remember, our electeds want—and NEED—to hear from us.   Contact  Chris Benz at christinabbenz@gmail.com to be put on the list of Community Commenters.

Volunteers for Top Priorities-All-Electric Reach Codes

Our Built Environment Committee needs volunteers for research, writing and networking with the community regarding our drive to have governments in Napa County establish all-electric codes.  Be part of this important effort to curb methane emissions from natural gas and push forward the switch to sustainable electric energy. Contact Karl Johnson at karl.johnson3@gmail.com

Forest Preservation Committee

Profrestation – growing existing forests intact to their ecological potential – is a scalable near-term climate stabilization solution available now to begin drawdown of greenhouse gases over the decade ahead.  Currently, the Forest Protection Committee is urging local governments to adopt a resolution (“Time Out For Trees”) ordering a temporary moratorium on approving forest and woodland removal until mitigation measures for conversion are strengthened and we need new members for our committee. To join, contact Jim Wilson at jplaudatosi@gmail.com
