Marin County Launches Climate Change Campaign to Drastically Reduce Greenhouse Gases

Oct 2, 2017

In the climate change world, the term "drawdown" refers to the point in time when greenhouse gases start to decline yearly. It’s been a huge goal for environmental scientists trying to reverse global warming. Now, Marin County is launching Drawdown: Marin. It’s a campaign that looks to drastically reduce greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, in the county. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi spoke with Marin County Supervisors Kate Sears (Southern Marin) and Damon Connolly (San Rafael) about the project and its goals.

A free kickoff event for the Drawdown: Marin campaign will take place Tuesday, October 3rd at 6 p.m. at Marin Civic Center's Showcase Theater.
