Current Issues

  • Is green hydrogen the way to move forward to clean, renewable energy?
  • 100% Renewable EnergyThe city is moving toward 100% clean electricity...but is it moving fast enough?
  • Oil Drilling—Hundreds of oil wells sit near residential neighborhoods. We want folks to have some breathing room!
  • LAX Rental EVs—LAX is spending a billion dollars on a new rental car facility.  Let's make sure it can handle EVs!
  • Building DecarbonizationZero-emission homes can actually be cheaper to build and own - and healthier.
  • Methane LobbyingTroubling lobbying by the fossil fuel industry is occurring in our neighborhood councils.
  • Divesting from fossil fuels—Did you know that the City continues to invest in fossil fuels in numerous ways?
  • Valley Generating Station—The NCSA board signed onto a letter saying that we think the methane leaks should be stopped as soon as possible. We don't have a copy of the signed letter, but we do have the content here
    And we support 
    CF 20-1150 (Koretz/Ryu), asking LADWP to tell us about leaks at power plants. See the motion and our fact sheet.
