FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CAMPO KUMEYAAY NATION JOINS THIRTY STATE
The Climate Registry serves as the North American platform to track greenhouse gas emissions.
Campo Indian Reservation, Campo, CA– The Campo Kumeyaay Nation is proud to join with thirty states as charter members of The Climate Registry, marking the largest multistate effort to address climate change. The list of charter members includes the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming and the Campo Kumeyaay Nation. Two Canadian provinces, British Columbia and Manitoba, have also committed to participate.
The newly formed organization will assist in measuring, tracking, and verifying emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), the gases that cause climate change. It will also provide the measurement and reporting infrastructure to support voluntary, mandatory, market-based and emissions reduction programs that are consistent across borders and industry sectors. The Registry will accept reporting data in January 2008.
“Participating in The Climate Registry is a critical step forward in the Campo Band’s efforts to address climate change,” stated Chairman H. Paul Cuero, Jr. “We can only manage what we can effectively measure. Getting accurate data on GHG emissions is a vital step towards addressing the impacts of climate change on our reservation. It also makes sense for states to share resources and synchronize our programs.” By working together, Registry members are laying the foundation for climate actions that will benefit generations to come.
