The following is a news release from the County of Marin: 

By popular demand, a second meeting about Marin County’s Climate Action Plan has been added by the County Community Development Agency (CDA) staff.


In addition to the meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, April 14, at the Marin Center Exhibit Hall, staff has added a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, in the Board of Supervisors chambers at the Marin County Civic Center.


In its original Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan, drafted in 2006, the County set an emissions reduction target of 15 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. Now, residents are being invited to learn more about the plan and contribute their input. Staff plans to provide details about the progress made in reducing emissions and give the residents a chance to provide input about what other strategies the County should consider to reduce emissions.


As part of the update effort, the County is completing an inventory of the greenhouse gas emissions from the unincorporated portions of the countyin 2012 to compare with historic 1990 emissions levels to determine if the County is on track with original goals. The updated plan will review and revise the emissions reductions strategies to reflect current opportunities and constraints.


Funding for the updated Climate Action Plan is provided by the Marin Energy Watch Partnership between the County and Pacific Gas and Electric Company as part of the partnership’s work toward achieving long-term energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reductions.


Marin Center Exhibit Hall is at 10 Avenue of the Flags in San Rafael, behind the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium. The Board of Supervisors chambers are at 3501 Civic Center Drive, Suite 330.

But the county officials need to feel green and important...

The only reason our legislators push this feel-good legislation is for re-election. There is most definitely a concerted effort from the top down to coerce us into givingup our liberties. The only folks who believe this garbage are the one that refuse to think for themselves. 3per makes an excellent point in regard to the county's methods to estimate green house gases. Can we analyze some non-biased data before this is crammed down our throats? Maybe the Golden Gate bridge district should stop extorting vehicle commuters to pay for a failing and polluting ferry system. But alas, the push to get us out of cars...

Out of our cars.?..They can have my car when they pry the wheel out of my cold dead hands. I will always call BS when I smell it.

3per, we are supposed to give up our cars when we move into all the housing by the train stations and bus depots. We don't need cars to go to work, or visit our friends who also live in housing by a train station or bus depot, and we can just take a shuttle to Grant Ave for shopping excursions.
