KyotoUSA volunteers live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area and have come together to urge the cities we live in, and the institutions and people who make up our local communities, to take real, substantive action to address the causes of global warming and the climate disruption that it causes.
KyotoUSA believes that the time has come for a concerted effort by local residents to address the issue of global warming where we live. It is our hope that these efforts will encourage similar responses from citizens throughout the United States, and that they will encourage our government leaders at the federal level to join the industrialized nations of the world in ratifying and implementing an international climate change treaty that goes beyond the empty rhetoric that has for so long hampered any significant effort to reduce global carbon emissions.
Our current focus is on getting renewable energy systems up on our public schools (either at no cost to their General Fund or systems that generate revenue) and helping them find ways to reduce their overall energy consumption.

Please join KyotoUSA in engaging in actions, both personal and civic, to reduce carbon emissions, and together, we will bring the planet's climate back into balance!
