December Meeting to Focus on San Diego’s Climate Action Plan

In September, 2014 San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer released his draft of the San Diego Climate Action Plan (CAP). The CAP aims to benefit both San Diego’s environment and its economy by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, creating new jobs and improving San Diego’s quality of life.
