Central Coast Voices: Carbon Neutral by 2035- San Luis Obispo Leading the Way with Ambitious Local

Apr 24, 2019

Climate change, also known as global warming, is the most important issue of our time. A warming climate affects every person in this county and every person on this planet. It will impact all aspects of our lives: from the way we work and the way we play to the food we eat and even the places we live. It is in all of our best interests to do everything we can while we still have time.

Carbon neutral by 2035 is the most ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction target in the nation, but it’s not just about emissions, it’s about health, equity, economy, community well-being, and sharing our lessons with the state, the nation, and the world.

Join Kris Kington Barker as she speaks with Chris Read, the Sustainability Manager for the City of San Luis Obispo, Bob Hill, Interim Deputy Director, Office of Sustainability, City of San Luis Obispo, Justin Bradshaw, Outreach Team Lead for the San Luis Obispo Climate Coalition and J.R. Killigrew, Director of Communications & Energy Programs, Monterey Bay Community Power as they discuss the collaboration between the City of San Luis Obispo and the San Luis Obispo Climate Coalition to turn the City’s “Carbon Neutral by 2035” initiative into reality. 

Broadcast date: 4/25/19
