City of San Rafael Climate Change Action Plan

California's City of San Rafael has released its Climate Change Action Plan. At 15 pages, the document is a quick read. Nevertheless, it contains an extensive list of specific actions for both mitigation and adaptation that the city intends to pursue including a number of action items for adaptation (flood and coastal protection, climate vulnerability assessment, tree planting and revegetation). It even goes as far as to highlight how the various actions will be implemented and monitored and identifies what additional actions can be taken at other scales of governance, from state and federal government to private citizens. So as far as plans go, San Rafael appears to have accomplished more than many other cities without wasting energy in producing glossy documents of staggering length.
