Climate Education & Action Update
The CEA Committee’s main focus is to support the City of Morgan Hill in accomplishing their Climate Action Plan (CAP) in the area of converting homes fueled by natural gas to all electric. These gases not only add to the methane emissions in our environment, they also put our families’ health at risk. In homes that use gas powered appliances, children are 42 percent more at risk for developing asthma compared to homes with electric stoves.
