  • 3. What is a Climate Action Plan? A Climate Action Plan (CAP) outlines steps a city can take to reduce its contribution to climate change.
  • 4. What is a Climate Action Plan? Unique characteristics of a city’s economy, resource base, and political structure provide different opportunities for dealing with climate change.
  • 5. What is a Climate Action Plan? The best CAPs are designed with input from many different people who live, work and play in the area.
  • 6. What is in a Climate Action Plan? Cost effective strategies to reduce emissions and benefit the local economy and community well being.
  • 7. Antioch Lighting Retrofit Annual cost savings for taxpayers = $500,000 Annual GHG emission savings = 1,800 tons CO2 eq Payback Rate = 10 years
  • 8. Which local cities are creating Climate Action Plans? Richmond Pittsburg Walnut Creek Pleasanton Benicia Martinez San Rafael San Francisco Berkeley Rohnert Park Hayward
  • 9. Why Does Antioch Need a CAP? • There are economic and social benefits to creating and implementing a climate action plan • State legislation requires greenhouse gas reductions
  • 10. Why Does Antioch Need a CAP?
  • 11. Potential Benefits for Antioch • Keep money in the local economy • Green jobs • Reduced energy costs • Expanded access to locally grown food • More sustainable transportation options • Thriving local communities
  • 12. Global Warming Solutions Act California Legislation: AB32 Assembly Bill 32 requires we reduce emissions to: • 1990 levels by 2020 • 80% below 1990 levels by 2050

  • 14. What are Greenhouse Gases? The major human-produced GHGs that contribute to global warming.
  • 15. Why Worry About GHGs? 3. Earth’s surface is 2. Some heated by the sun and energy is radiates the heat back out reflected towards space back out to space 4. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere trap some of the heat 1. Solar energy from the sun passes through the atmosphere The Greenhouse Effect
  • 16. How do we create Antioch’s CAP? Greenhouse gas reduction strategies are developed based on the emission footprint of a city.
  • 17. Antioch GHG Reductions The City of Antioch has committed to reducing community- wide greenhouse gas emissions by 25% below its baseline by the year 2020 and 80% by 2050. Total Reduction Needed by 2020 = 75,295 Metric Tons of CO2 e
