Updated Alert: Greenhouse Gas Emission Threshold In Santa Barbara County

Original Alert:

Let the County Board of Supervisors know that you support the lowest threshold possible for regulating greenhouse gas emissions.

This Tuesday the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors will consider options for setting greenhouse gas (GHG) emission thresholds from stationary sources. Their decisions will impact Santa Barbara’s ability to regulate GHG emissions for generations to come.

CEC has been working on this issue for several years, and we need your help as a final ruling is fast approaching. The thresholds being considered differ drastically in their ability to reduce harmful GHG emissions from large sources such as new oil drilling projects. Please take a moment to request that the County make protecting our climate a top priority by setting the lowest threshold possible for GHG emissions from stationary sources.

Speak Up:

  1. Speak at the County Supervisors Hearing:
    Tuesday, May 19 1:00 p.m.
    County Administration Building, Fourth Floor
    105 East Anapamu Street Santa Barbara, CA 93101

          NOTE: While the meeting begins at 9:00 a.m., GHG emissions is #6 on the agenda, which means this issue will be addressed at about 1:00 p.m.

If you can’t make the meeting, send an email with the subject “Item #6 – May 19, 2015 BOS Agenda – GHG Thresholds” to the Board of Supervisors:
