History of the Climate Action Committee (CAC)

The joint Climate Action Committee (CAC) held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, May 28, 2008, at 3:30 p.m.

The CAC next met on Thursday, June 12, 2008.  The agenda featured representatives from the City of Tacoma who described their year-long experience implementing a local Climate Action Plan.

The CAC next met in a special meeting held on Wednesday, July 2, 2008.  The agenda included a review of the community-wide draft carbon emissions inventory, and a discussion of the Work Plan leading to the Climate Action Plan (which is anticipated to be complete in late 2009).

On July 30, 2008, the CAC met in a special meeting. The agenda included adoption of the July 30, 2008, local baseline Carbon Emissions Inventory, and also the adoption of a framework for the CAC's Work Plan, which will lead ultimately to the CAC's Climate Action Plan.

On August 27, 2008, the CAC held a regular meeting, and began "brainstorming" a list of potential measures that might be taken to reduce local carbon emissions. 

The CAC held a regular meeting on Wednesday, September 24, 2008, during which back- and forecasting tools were discussed, and “brainstorming" continued on potential emissions reduction measures.
