We need real solutions, not just talking points. Whether we like it or not, oil is not a long-term solution. It's a short-term, limited resource that will run out soon and destroy our health and our environment in the process.
If the federal government is too crippled, it's time for us to start locally. What is Pleasanton doing to stop climate change and end America's dependence on foreign oil? There are many steps that we can take at a local level to do our part. For example, why don't we pledge to make all city vehicles hybrids or run on bio-fuels? Why not put solar panels on all city and school buildings to reduce energy costs?
It's time to take our destiny into our own hands and do our part to save our city's budget and our planet, and stop waiting for others to solve our problems.
