On February 25th, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors will be voting on a proposed Yolo County Climate Emergency Declaration & Mobilization.

The proposal calls for:

  • a countywide mobilization to reverse contributions to climate change and the ecological crisis
  • creation of a Yolo County Climate Action Emergency Mobilization Task Force to develop a 10 year “Climate Action Mobilization Plan,”

  • transitioning the County’s energy infrastructure to 100% renewable-energy generation, and achieve a countywide carbon-negative (climate-positive) footprint by 2030;
  • identifying and advancing farming and ranching practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve water, increase groundwater storage, and enhance soil quality;
