Climate Action & Environment

Be part of the movement to live sustainably.

The San Francisco Bay Area takes a strong stand for climate action & the environment.

Do we still?

The Bay Area’s average temperature increased by 1.7°F from 1950-2005

Future increases in temperature will likely cause longer and deeper California droughts, posing major problems for water supplies, natural ecosystems, and agriculture. (photo credit: T. Kelley)

Our awesome features
Several studies suggest that coastal fog along the California coast is less frequent than before.

Our awesome features
Sea level in the Bay Area has risen over 8 inches in the last 100 years.

Much of the Bay Area’s transportation system — airports, roads, and railways — is concentrated along the bay where flooding from sea level rise and storm surge is a major vulnerability. Wastewater treatment plants, historically located along bay shorelines where effluent discharge was convenient, are now highly vulnerable to future sea level rise. (photo credit: M. Hammoutene)
