For those of you poring over the ballot this weekend, the Science and Environment Team urges you to vote YES on HH: the Climate Equity Fund.
Measure HH would create a Climate Equity Action Fund to increase investment in environmental justice programs, energy efficiency, greener transportation, etc. A small increase in the utility tax on gas and electricity would enable this, while-lower income households would be exempted from the entire tax. Visit BerkeleyClimate.org for more information. Please e-mail our very own Mary Ann Furda to volunteer by texting voters (super easy and fun to do!) or to get a window sign!
Thanks for your support of climate equity in Berkeley! And please go vote!
