No Time to Waste



With only 12 years to prevent climate catastrophe, local governments around the country are committing themselves to a rapid transition to 100 percent clean energy ("Huffman Appointed to New Congressional Climate Crisis Committee," posted Feb. 7). We can be proud that Arcata, Eureka, the McKinleyville Community Service District and the county of Humboldt are among them.

But our local clean energy commitments are only meaningful if they are adhered to by the agency that decides how the millions of dollars we pay in electric bills are spent. RCEA has not yet committed to a 100 percent clean energy goal or created a plan to get us there. Their own Community Advisory Committee has asked them to do so. If you agree with the Community Advisory Committee, please send a letter to the RCEA board members.
