Mayors Climate Protection Agreement

The Climate Protection Agreement which was adopted at the June 2005 Conference of US Mayors, commits participating cities to take the following actions:

Strive to meet or beat the Kyoto Protocol targets in their own communities, through actions ranging from anti-sprawl land-use policies to urban forest restoration projects to public information campaigns;

Urge their state governments, and the federal government, to enact policies and programs to meet or beat the greenhouse gas emission reduction target suggested for the United States in the Kyoto Protocol — 7% reduction from 1990 levels by 2012; and

Urge the U.S. Congress to pass the bipartisan greenhouse gas reduction legislation, which would establish a national emission trading system

Over 514 cities have signed on, but Alameda is not on the list 😦 Anybody know what’s stopping us?

    Disappointing! What’s the point in the city having a climate protection task force if we lack the very basic committment to protect the climate?
