Alameda County:

Alameda County Joins Nationwide "Cool Counties" Initiative

Alameda County has joined large counties from across the country, as well as the Sierra Club, in the Cool Counties Climate Stabilization Declaration, a major new initiative to combat global warming. Participating counties pledge to reduce global warming emissions 80 percent by 2050, an achievable average annual reduction of two percent. The Declaration also urges the federal government to adopt legislation requiring an 80 percent emissions reduction by 2050 and calls for fuel economy standards to be raised to 35 miles per gallon within a decade.


The counties that launched the Cool Counties Declaration earlier this month represent a diverse array of some of America's largest counties -- more than 17 million people across ten states live in the founding counties. In addition to Alameda County, the founding governments include King (WA), Fairfax and Arlington (VA), Nassau (NY), Montgomery and Queen Anne's (MD), Miami-Dade (FL), Cook (IL), Shelby (TN), Hennepin (MN) and Dane (WI).
