MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SONOMA COUNTY!350 Sonoma, an all-volunteer non-profit, is working to slow climate change and promote climate justice in the county. We're part of 350 Bay Area and inspired by 350.org, the international climate action organization founded by Bill McKibbon. We meet the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County, 467 Sebastopol Ave., Santa Rosa. Join us!

The California Legislature just reconvened for the 2018 session and environmentalists from across the state are focusing on Senate Bill 100. If passed, SB 100 would establish a target of generating 100 percent of California’s retail sales of electricity from renewable energy resources by 2045. (The bill cleared the Senate last fall and is now in committee in the Assembly.) If the planet is to avoid catastrophic levels of warming, people must work for the passage of ambitious bills like SB 100. Please contact your assembly member and urge him/her to support SB 100. (Not sure who your CA Assembly Member is? Use this link to find out.)
We call on CalSTRS and CalPERS to divest by 2020 from all oil and gas companies, beginning with ExxonMobil, Chevron, and Shell. These companies have known for decades that their products increase the dangers of climate change, but they have not joined the international effort to minimize global warming. Since they refuse to modify their business plans or activities, and since their reserves are at risk of becoming worthless stranded assets, CalSTRS and CalPERS should refuse to own any of their shares.
