Santa Barbara High School must commit to energy efficiency, 100% clean renewable energy sources and focus on environmental justice and equity by 2030.

We must transition off of fossil fuels to prevent catastrophic climate change all over the world. This threat endangers the livelihood of every community in California, particularly the futures of young generations and the generations to come. California is seeing decreased rainfall, increased forest fires, coastal erosion, and higher temperatures. 

Everything is at stake: our health, our infrastructure, our economy, and most importantly, our environment.

It is therefore urgent that Santa Barbara High School transition all 16 campuses from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. Renewable energy plus battery storage is essential to reducing indirect carbon emissions and fighting the climate crisis. 

As technology improves and renewable energy becomes cheaper and more readily available, traditional non-renewable energy is growing in cost. This means that 100% clean energy would allow Santa Barbara High School to save money that can be used in the classroom.
