Why My City is Cool

The City of San Jose is cool because it signed and ratified the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement this past March, and in early June the City Council unanimously passed greenhouse gas reduction goals for city operations that are the most ambitious in the country beginning with 25% below 1990 levels by 2012 and ramping up to 80% below 1990 levels by 2045! (See 6/05/07 City Council Agenda Synopsis for Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goals).

The Sierra Club Cool Cities San Jose team is a coalition of organizations and citizens working together to support the City in its efforts to reduce municipal greenhouse gas emissions and to extend that effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions city-wide.

Cool Cities: Solving Global Warming One City at a Time

All over America, cities, counties and states are launching an exciting grassroots movement to help solve one of our country's most pressing problems: global warming. Frustrated by stalling on the federal level, local leaders are moving forward with innovative energy solutions that cut our dependence on oil, benefit public health and save taxpayer dollars. These mayors, county commissioners and governors are leading the way toward a safer and more secure future.

Each tour stop will feature a rally where "Cool City" mayors and local Sierra Club leaders will call for proven local energy solutions that will re-energize our cities and help curb heat-trapping global warming pollution.

To accompany the tour, the Sierra Club has released a new guide, "Cool Cities: Solving Global Warming One City at a Time." The guide explains the steps toward making cities "cool" and tells success stories from a broad range of cities. The Cool Cities guide is available online.
