The changing climate has potentially severe economic, health, social and environmental consequences [in Berkeley], including:
In November 2006, Berkeley voters issued a call to action on the climate challenge by overwhelmingly endorsing ballot Measure G. The mandate was simple but bold: Reduce our entire community’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% by the year 2050.
This plan is the result of the campaign that Measure G set in motion. It is rooted in the vision for a sustainable Berkeley that emerged from the climate action planning process. The plan’s purpose is to serve as a guide for setting the community on a path to achieve that vision.

This plan focuses mostly on mitigation rather than adaptation. It clearly states the health risks associated with climate change. It is especially helpful because it includes methodology, legislative examples, and a structure of goals, policies and implementing actions. This plan is more comprehensive than average.
