Listen to a report about the Plan from KRCB News Director Bruce Robinson. The report includes excerpts of an interview with Technical Director, Dave Erickson, and Project Manager, Renata Brillinger.

We support the Sonoma County Community Climate Action Plan, and call for its speedy implementation. While there is a need for more investigation into some elements of the Plan, there are others that can be acted upon quickly. We call for moving forward with all possible solutions as soon as practicable.
