Our City, Santa Cruz, CA, home to UCSC among other things, has 
produced their final draft Climate Action Plan.
Not many US cities have them.  They hope to adopt it by March 2012.

They are accepting feedback if you care to send it.

Here is the blurb from the website where you can get the PDF docs

"The final draft of the City of Santa Cruz Climate Action Plan (CAP) 
is complete. The CAP outlines the actions the City will take over the 
next ten years to reduce greenhouse gasses by 30%. Please read the 
Climate Action Plan, the Chart of Potential Implementation Actions, 
and the 2020 Milestones by clicking the links below. The CAP will be 
presented to several City Commissions in January and taken to City 
Council for adoption in March. You are welcome to give us additional 
feedback by submitting your comments directly to City Council for 

I gave feedback on earlier drafts and have not read this one yet 
except to verify the docs can be opened with a Linux PDF reader (so 
not real complicated and not requiring you get Adobe Acrobat Reader).

Thanks Gil, the city of Bloomington In, has a Peak Oil Task Force... how amazing!

Tompkins County is listed in the press release as another location that is directly addressing Peak Oil, does any know of any specific tasks that our county is doing or plans to do?
