LWVNC Climate Change Action Policy
The League of Women Voters of Napa (LWVNC) supports actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change in order to protect our county and state from the negative physical, economic, and public health effects. Our local league engages at a local and regional level. Our actions are to:
Promote energy conservation and efficiency in transportation, buildings, and infrastructure, including energy efficiency standards and land use policies that reduce vehicle miles travelled.
Promote carbon pricing by market mechanisms such as cap and trade systems and carbon taxes.
Promote a clean, low-carbon energy economy that is sustainable, including all forms of renewable energy and transportation infrastructure.
Promote policies that mitigate impacts of climate change by adaptation in urban, rural, agricultural, and natural settings.
