Thanks for posting these workshops here....I had just read:
San Jose Mercury News: "Brown to launch anti-warming effort". 02/19/2008
"Monday, Jerry Brown's aides told MediaNews he will announce he is
convening voluntary regional schools for California's more than 500
county supervisors and mayors to advocate tough actions such (as) new
transportation impact fees and costly energy-efficiency.
California must adopt the necessary changes that will encourage
economic growth while reducing greenhouse gases," Brown said. "This
difficult transition from our current escalating dependence on fossil
fuel demands that cities and counties encourage maximum building
efficiency and innovative land-use.
Brown's classes will center on complying with the state Environmental
Quality Act - a highly controversial law that requires cities and
developers to study various effects of proposed projects. Factors

"These workshops launch the first statewide movement to reduce the
negative impact of local planning decisions on global climate," Brown
said in a letter."
