Our campaign is dedicated to energizing ourselves and our state and local government bodies about the possibilities expressed in this short video  from The Solutions Project          

Our campaign grew out the enthusiasm and great science of one of its well-known scientist Board Members, Mark Jacobson, who gave the keynote speech at our Climate Conference in March 2014, which the large crowd there gave him a rousing standing ovation for.  You can watch it Here.  And you can watch the panel discussion with him that followed his talk, moderated by Greg Dalton of the Commonwealth Club’s Climate One, with Miya Yoshitani of APEN, Dan Jacobson from Environment CA, and Greg Thomson from Clean Coalition  Here

Mark Jacobson, from nearby Stanford, has a plan for California that he talked about in the above video that is in this peer-reviewed article  http://web.stanford.edu/group/efmh/jacobson/Articles/I/CaliforniaWWS.pdf
