Decarbonization Action Team News
CRP: Silicon Valley Decarbonization
Action Campaign

Join and Be Part of Reducing Fossil Fuel Use
By Karen Nelson, Chapter Co-Chair and Decarbonization Action campaign Director

I believe that the engine of climate defense is the community.  And energizing the community to reduce and ultimately stop using fossil fuel is essential to a healthy climate.  We have it in our power to make this happen in Silicon Valley, for both our residents and our business community. 
 
And what is exciting is that we can track the progress of our work.  I don’t know about you, but I am seriously motivated by seeing my results.  And so is everyone we connect with.  I want to build a chapter program that uses this motivation to take action.  And many actions can be amazingly simple and yet incredibly effective.
 
The Decarbonization Action campaign focuses on dialing down fossil fuel use in Silicon Valley by actions that shift our energy use to electricity. The Decarb Action campaign is driven by action to accelerate implementation of adopted state and community legislation and policies and the climate goals of the community at large.
 
Consider signing up for one or more of these Decarb Action teams.  These actions and focus are first stage efforts.  Plus, your ideas will be important as we develop our experience and expertise to adjust and expand to our efforts. For more detail on the teams and volunteer opportunities, listed below, click here.
 
All-Electric Lifestyle team.  
  • Resident Education sub-team will develop tools to inform residents about the health, safety, cost and planet saving benefits of the shift from fossil fuel use to electricity. 
  • The Switch Is On sub-team.  Become a sub-committee member and we’ll work to encourage a shift to heat pump technology for our home and business HVAC and water heating, along with induction stove use.  
  • Tools and Resources sub-team to create documentation for instructions, guides and resource referrals to help residents make good choices as they switch to clean energy use. 
  • Community Choice Energy sub-team will work with our local Community Choice Aggregate agencies.
 
GoGreen team San Jose.  Work with San Jose Climate Smart to create small neighborhood, friend or family groups to learn about and take action to increase their green lifestyle. 
 
Business Climate Governance team.  Meet with local corporations and businesses to encourage actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Let’s get started Email me at Knelson@pacificmedia.com to learn more and to participate in our upcoming Campaign meeting.

New San José Clean Energy Wind Project
Now Powering More Than Half of San José Homes
In another win for the climate, SJCE has invested in 225 megawatts of New Mexico wind that will help San José meet its ambitious climate and renewable energy goals.

The New Mexico Wind Project augments its investments in solar and battery storage and diversifies its portfolio. Wind complements solar generation and typically delivers power around the clock. The project’s location in New Mexico generally delivers energy earlier each day than local California wind projects. 

Since launching service in February 2019, SJCE has invested $1 billion in nearly 500 MW of solar, wind, and battery storage.

Legislation & Public Policy Update
By Laurence Gathy, Director, Legislation & Public Policy Program

Interactive Legislative Training Session - March 12
Join us in learning about California's legislative process and how to work with your state Senators and Assembly members to pass important climate legislation.This is a much-requested repeat performance of last October's statewide training, updated to include information about remote attendance at legislative hearings, the state budget process, and how to participate in agency rule making.

Date: Saturday, March 12
Time: 1:00 - 5:00 pm PT
Where: Zoom - Use this link to RSVP

Agenda:
  1. Overview of the California legislative process
  2. Effective Citizen Lobbying
  3. How to research and track bills
  4. Role play practice for meetings with legislators

We Support Ukraine
We are all deeply saddened by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people in demanding peace. In collaboration with hundreds of organization, our chapter signed onto #StandWithUkraine calling on world governments to reject and ban the import of Russian oil and gas, and to rapidly phase out all fossil fuels. You can read the full Press Release and find the full list of signatories on the stand with Ukraine website

In addition, we will be supporting Senate Majority Leader McGuire and the legislative coalition to advance a bill that will call on all state agencies, including the Golden State’s massive pension funds, CalPERS and CalSTRS, to divest from any and all Russian assets immediately. 

If you’re looking for ways to show our support and help Ukraine, Global Shapers Kyiv and Global Shapers Lviv hubs have compiled a list of resources you can look into.

Legislation Support Letters and Actions
The legislative session is in full swing and we’ve been busy reviewing, signing on and sending out support letters as well as opposition ones on a number of legislative and policy items.

Food and Water Watch. The chapter joined Food and Water Watch in partnership with Friends of the Earth in calling on the Senate Committee on Appropriations to support the mandatory reporting and regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from factory farms and manure management operations. The EPA identifies livestock as responsible for 25% of overall agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, while manure management operations contribute 12% of overall agricultural emissions. 

Bill AB-2026. In mid-February, we signed on to a support letter for assembly bill AB-2026 that calls for phasing unnecessary and unacceptable single-use plastics used to ship online purchases in California. 

Climate Education bill AB 1939. We signed on with Californians for Climate Literacy, Sierra Club Bay Chapter and 350 Bay Area to support climate change literacy for all California students and to implement environmental and climate literacy efforts across our schools.

USPS Vehicle Fleet. Our chapter joined many organization in writing to the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors urging the reversal of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy decision to replace the aging fleet of post office delivery vehicles with gas-powered trucks instead of battery electric vehicles as was recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the White House Council on Environmental Quality, the California Air Resources Board, and many others.

Transportation Actions
We continue to work with the Advanced Clean Cars II (ACC II) Coalition to advocate for strong CARB regulations. There are a few areas that we are specifically paying attention to and pushing for more stringent regulations. In particular we want to see more robust ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicles) sales targets by 2030 and make some of the equity provisions mandatory as opposed to voluntary. Some of the equity provisions include a Car-Share program, giving EJ (Environment Justice) credits to manufacturers of ZEVs with lower MSRP (<$25,000), promoting extended warranties as those vehicles transition to secondary owners and credit for free replacement of battery for used ZEVs. 

The coalition is keeping a close tab on the reinstatement of the EPA waiver. Under the Clean Air Act California must obtain an EPA waiver to establish stricter car pollution rules than the federal government. The Trump administration revoked California's waiver for the current ACC I rule and the Biden administration is currently working on reinstating it. 

The coalition now has a new Clean Cars Campaign website where you will find information on the ACC II campaign and the need for California to transition to all electric vehicles asap to avoid the most catastrophic impact of climate change. Exhaust from cars and trucks is the number one source of climate and air pollution in California. We have an opportunity to change this by making sure CARB adopts strong regulations, requiring 75% of EV sales by 2030 and 100% by 2035. The Clean Cars Campaign also includes an advertisement drive in the LA Times, Politico and the Sacramento Bee! 

Visit the website to learn more and to send a tweet directly to the governor and the Air Resource Board requesting stronger policy. Here’s a sample tweet:  

@GavinNewsom, @AirResources - cars and trucks are the #1 source of smog and climate pollution. The Advanced Clean Cars program doesn't go far enough. We need at least 75% #EV sales by 2030. Don't fail us on #climate! www.cleancarstates.org/75by2030 www.cleancarstates.org/75by2030 #EVsSaveLives 

The Truck Fleet coalition is also moving to action. It will circulate a letter to CARB for legislator sign-on regarding truck rules, and provide a webinar in the March timeframe. The coalition is advocating to make sure that the new rules will apply to smaller fleets (less than 50 trucks) which is not the case in the current proposal.

San Mateo Bicycle Lane Win: In February, the city of San Mateo city council voted 3-2 to approve the bicycle lanes and remove more than 200 street parking spaces, despite pushback from residents.

Public Transit Bills: We are supporting the following two public transit bills.

  • AB 1919 to provide equity transit to students, calling for free student transit passes. 
  • SB 917 will support the adoption of a universal fare system and the coordination of schedules across the Bay Area’s nine counties and the region’s 27 transit agencies to encourage the agencies to develop and adopt a coordinated network plan. 

Plastics Update
The Plastics Team continues to grow and is developing collaborations with the 350 Silicon Valley Plastics Team and the Beyond Plastics network. The team is ready to welcome new volunteers to work on developing strategies to spread awareness within our Silicon Valley Community of the degree to which plastic production and disposition contribute to national and global greenhouse grass production. 

Information on this topic can be found on these websites

Counter misinformation generated by petrochemical companies which are pivoting to plastic production in anticipation of decreased demand for fossil fuels: Plastic is the New Coal; Recycling is not the Solution.

Support local, state and federal legislation and international agreements that a) target reduction of virgin and single use plastic production, b) require plastic producers to take responsibility for the financial, climate and environmental costs of plastic production and disposition.

Current plastics developments to watch and support

California Bills
California lawmakers have introduced more than 12 bills to tackle plastic pollution and waste. These include the Senate Bill 54, The Plastic Pollution Responsibility Act, and the parallel Assembly Bill 1080, Solid Waste: Packaging and Products, which together are structured to cut packaging and plastic waste by 75% by 2030. SB 54, banning single use plastics on or after January 1, 2032 was passed by the January 31 deadline, and will have until the end of August to pass the assembly.

Stop Plastic Pollution is working on a CA ballot measure, The California Plastic Pollution Reduction and Recycling Act, to reduce single-use plastic packaging and food-ware by 2030, slightly more aggressive than the SB 54 proposal. The campaign is sponsored by The Nature Conservancy and Oceana. You can sign up to get more info here: https://www.stopplasticpollutionca.com/.

Federal Plastics Act
The Federal Break Free from Plastic Pollution Act, is currently in committee and is in need of more support from our elected representatives in Congress. More information on this bill is here https://www.beyondplastics.org/bffppa.

International Plastics Treaty in the Works
The United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) meeting in Nairobi on February 28th established a committee to draft a legally binding international treaty on plastics. Rwanda and Peru had proposed a resolution that would address the full life cycle of plastic, including oil and gas extraction, manufacture, transportation, consumption, and disposal. The Biden Administration has expressed its support of a comprehensive treaty. We will be working with partners to support an effective and legally binding global agreement. Please see UN Environment Assembly Press conference for information on global actions.

Building Decarbonization Legislation and Policy
Our team is in the process of reading and reviewing bills for our chapter to support. Most of the bills we’ve seen thus far in the building decarbonization sector are focused on building materials. AB 1369 adds certain building materials such as gypsum board, insulation, carpet and carpet tiles, ceiling tiles to the list of eligible materials under the Buy Clean California Act (BCCA). As such these materials will require specified greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions information moving forward. SB 1297 is looking at reducing the embodied carbon in building materials and sequester carbon in the built environment. Senator Becker’s SB 778 adds concrete to the Buy Clean program to leverage the state’s purchasing power in deploying low carbon technologies and best practices across the cement-concrete supply chain.

Supporting Climate Education
AB 1939. The bill supporting climate education AB 1939 by Assembly member Rivas and Senator Cortese has been pared down to mandate the teaching climate only in science classes. Although it is disappointing as we wanted this bill to include teaching climate crisis as an interdisciplinary subject and include climate justice, climate solutions and environmental racism, we still believe that adding Climate Change science to the curriculum is essential and will support it. 

Seeking Volunteer Assistance
We are always looking for passionate volunteers who want to participate in the legislative committee. We are in need of help to track bills, write letters, put pressure on state legislature committees and attend meetings with elected officials. We need strong voices to influence our elected officials into making the right decisions for a greener future and to advocate for bold climate action. If you’re interested in volunteering, email laurencegathy@me.com
Communications Update
Erin Zimmerman: Monthly San Jose Spotlight Column
San Jose Needs Your Help in Tackling Climate Change
In this month’s column, Erin Zimmerman, SV Chapter Trained Leader, addresses how San Jose residents can tackle climate change and be the engine behind San Jose meeting its 2030 carbon neutrality goals.
"San Jose recently announced that it is aiming for carbon neutrality in 2030, instead of a goal for 2050 as other cities are setting. This gives the city eight short years to change habits and policies that people have developed over many decades.

Unsurprisingly, when asked if I thought this goal was achievable, I answered “no. Reaching carbon neutrality is a huge ask and such an ambitious goal appeared, at least to me, to be based on hope rather than actual plans. But, as it turns out, there are plans. And good ones.

San Jose residents are the key to success

While Climate Smart San Jose is doing a lot, to succeed the city needs the support of residents. Right now, residents could do more. (Read the full article to find out how!)

Speakers Bureau Team News
By Campbell Scott, Speakers Bureau, Co-Director

We're all speakers - how is it going?
We invite you to tell us about conversations about climate that you have had with your friends and families.  What topics are uppermost in their minds?  What questions arise as you consider the issues?  Are people more, or less, optimistic as they learn about the effects of climate change and the solutions that are being rolled out?

Help us to find new audiences
Organizations rarely approach us about arranging a presentation.  They may not even know that CRP exists and has a slate of speakers versed in various topics relating to climate change.  So, if you know of a group that may want to learn more about climate change, what we can each do about it, and what technological solutions are proposed, please provide them with contact information to Silicon Valley Chapter’s speakers bureau.  Details and instructions can be found at https://conta.cc/2WMmjQQ

Talking points
Talking points are provided to assist you in preparing  your presentations and to aid discussion with your family, friends, and colleagues. Here's this month's talking point:

The answer lies in the sea.
The geological carbon cycle depends on the ability of shellfish to capture carbon dioxide from seawater as they create calcium carbonate to build their shells.  Marine biologists are increasingly aware of the role they can play to exploit and accelerate this process to counter carbon dioxide accumulation.  Restoration of historical overfished shellfish beds is key to the utilization of this natural process: clams in the sands of Pismo Beach, the oysters in temperate sea-lochs and estuaries, mussels on intertidal shorelines and in fresh water worldwide.

Unlike wood, some of which can decays, feeding microbes and fungi, aerobically to produce carbon dioxide, calcium carbonate is a stable mineral, and the ultimate geological carbon sink in the form of chalk, limestone and marble that last millions of years.  Shellfish have an added benefit:  they are filter-feeders and clean up the water as they extract nutrients from it.  Oysters can filter up to 200 liters per day, improving water quality for other species such as sea-grasses and fish.
Thus, not only should we plant trees to remove carbon-dioxide from the atmosphere over land, we should also encourage the growth of shellfish to remove it from seawater.
Do You Have a Booked Presentation?

If any of you are giving presentations that we don't know about, please let Campbell know, so we can track it for our chapter records and for The Climate Reality Project national team. Or, if you have led a climate discussion or given a talk recently, however informal, and regardless of the size of the audience, be sure to let Campbell know about it so he can post to the CRP HUB.

Silicon Valley Families Campaign
By Marn-Yee Lee, Chapter Co-Chair and Silicon Valley Families Program Director
The Silicon Valley Families campaign seeks to empower parents and grandparents to learn about the climate change crisis, so that they can intelligently guide their children and grandchildren and show our next generation that there are adults, including their own family members, who care about restoring the climate to a livable future.
Kids Voices on Climate Change
Check out our new climate campaign for kids
We’re launching a campaign to help kids 5-18 years old express what climate change means to them. 

We are asking kids to create and submit a climate change-themed drawing, photo, video, poem, quote, poster, or musical composition that expresses how they feel and think about climate change. With parent/guardian permission, their creation will be showcased online, in print and at in-person events.

Click here to see (and download) the full poster that was created by Sophie, age 11, of Mountain View. Share it with friends, family, teachers and classmates. Post it to your social media. We want as many kids as possible to raise their voices about the challenges of climate change to their lives and their futures.

The Earth on Your Plate: Why Changing Our Diet is Essential to Saving the Planet

An event with Mohan Gurunathan, food systems sustainability expert.
Date: Mar 23, 2022 
Time: 07:00 PM Pacific Time 
Explore why we need to swiftly adopt more plant-based diets to save the Earth and her ecosystems. In this session we will dive deep into understanding the fundamental costs and consequences of our daily food choices, and learn how simple dietary changes offer a tremendous opportunity to solve a wide range of serious global problems.
Meet the speaker: Mohan Gurunathan
Mohan Gurunathan is an engineer, entrepreneur and activist who has lived and worked in Silicon Valley for over 20 years. He is an expert on food systems sustainability and speaks to public audiences about the environmental and social impacts of individual diet choices. Mohan played a leading role in convincing the City of Mountain View to include "plant-based diet promotion" as a part of their 2019 Environmental Sustainability Plan. He also serves as an advisor and/or board member for numerous environmental and animal advocacy non-profits. 
Supporting Children in the Face of Climate Change Watch This Informative Video
by Marn-Yee Lee, Chapter Co-Chair and SV Families Director
Climate change is a heavy, anxiety laden topic, for both adults and children alike. This video presentation does a good job laying out how to approach this fraught topic with children at different ages. More importantly, it emphasizes the importance of respecting children's development stages, securing consent and not forcing participation. It also addresses the need for adults to support children who want to take action.
This video is 1.5 hours long. Although it is well worth watching in its entirety, I have summarized the content into sections and provided time codes so you can easily watch specific segments of interest.

The speaker is Jo McAndrews. Her work is built on sound, up to date and immediately usable research and practice from the fields of neurobiology, attachment, trauma and resilience. Her approach is deeply relational and imbued with creativity, mindfulness and compassion.

The key message is that parents need to take care of themselves, first and foremost, when digesting the heavy news of climate change and working as activists. Parents need to be a role model of calm, and they need to support healthy social-emotional development of children -- who will unfortunately grow up in an uncertain world. We can help them become grounded adults who will be effective changemakers, by first focusing on helping babies and young children feel secure in their interpersonal connections, their body, their space. 

SV Family campaign volunteers
We continue to look for volunteers -- especially youth, parents and grandparents, to help us develop presentations suitable for kids of different ages, and to work on activities that we can do online or in-person, at libraries and schools.  If you're interested in joining up with our team, contact Marn-Yee Lee.

Climate Change Book Review
The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where We Go From Here
Author: Hope Jahren
Publication year: 2020
Publisher: Vintage
Length: 224 pages
Review by Nancy Truher

My key take-aways:

On every inhabitable continent, people are migrating from rural areas into cities  More people in more cities requires more MORE in general.  The assumption that increasing consumption is truly the only way to build a civilization may represent the greatest threat of all.  The Story of Enough (remaining one-car families, shopping locally, and flying sparingly) was the road not taken.  When given the choice we recommitted ourselves to the Story of More.
 
The American conversation about oil, gas, and coal is never about how much we use, only about where we can get MORE.  Today 20% of the grain grown on Earth is converted to biofuel.  Like most energy innovations of the last 100 years, development of corn-ethanol biofuel has simply been used to facilitate INCREASED fuel consumption.
 
Our labor-saving machines were successfully engineered to produce more work from less fuel.  We have aggressively offset what could have led to a global decrease in energy consumption by vastly increasing the level of energy use within almost every sphere of our daily lives.  Globally the total amount of electricity that people use each day has more than quadrupled over the last 50 years.
 
The world places great symbolic value on the appearance of loyalty to the Paris Agreement.  The problem is that there's no way to enforce a cultural aspiration posing as an international agreement. There is no industrial profit to be made in pushing a Story of Less.
