California is the most populous state in the USA, and arguably the greenest, so it’s good news to hear from our friends in the Golden State that the Environmental Caucus of the California Democratic Party has officially endorsed the International Day of Climate Action and will be submitting this proposed language–endorsing the 350 ppm goal–next month for adoption by the California Democratic Party. Here’s the resolution draft:

WHEREAS, Global Climate Change endangers the foundation of human civilization, by specifically threatening: large scale farming, livestock production, fisheries and other wild animal food sources, traditional water supplies, and human habitable zones, due to radical changes in weather conditions and sea level; and

WHEREAS, Leading atmospheric scientists, such as James E. Hansen of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, believe we can prevent the worst effects of Global Climate Change, by reducing the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, to 350 parts per million (PPM); and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party recognizes the goal of reducing the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide to 350 PPM; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party is committed to reaching the goal of 350 PPM, and will forward this resolution to our California U.S. Senators, California Democratic Congressional Delegation, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, and President Barack Obama.
