Climate action is happening right now--it’s coming from the ground up. Our science has shown us that nature is an essential solution to climate change, trapping carbon to slow future warming and defending us from the effects of warming already happening. Nature can trap 37% of the emissions needed to stabilize warming below 2°C through 2030. By nature we mean, better management of our forests, grasslands, agricultural lands and wetlands. Thirty-seven percent is 11.3 billion tons of greenhouse gas.

What comes to mind when you think of the City of Dixon? For one woman — a Dixon native and artist — she thinks of farming and agriculture.
So much so that she created a 20-foot mural of a Solano County farmer and his dog, which can be seen from hundreds of feet away.
The San Luis Obispo-based artist Colleen Gnos wanted to pay homage to the town she calls home.
Gnos is the daughter of Dixon farmer and says the small farming community inspired her art.
She said she hopes the mural will create more appreciation for farmers who spend long hours working to bring fresh food to the public.
The art can be seen by drivers near Dixon heading East on Interstate 80.

Coral reefs are home to 25% of all marine species. All that biological diversity translates into chemical diversity which can be used in life-saving medicines that treat cancer. Our own survival depends on their survival. Together, we can and must save them.
