Pleasanton officials plan virtual workshop on climate action

Community members can weigh in on city's CAP 2.0

Pleasanton city officials are hosting an interactive virtual workshop on Thursday, so community members can share their concerns, comments and priorities for a "resilient, low-carbon future in Pleasanton."

"The decisions we make now will affect Pleasanton for years to come," officials said in a statement. "Our decisions will also define how we do our part to reduce climate-polluting greenhouse gas emissions."

Staff members will go over the city's climate change progress and proposed strategies for its Climate Action Plan 2.0 (CAP 2.0) in a presentation, followed by structured small group discussions with the city project team, which started work on the CAP 2.0 last year.

Officials said, "CAP 2.0 will be our updated roadmap to a resilient, low-carbon future," and expect to share the plan for the City Council's consideration by the end of the year.

All members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the workshop; organizers said "there is no need to have a background in climate issues or Pleasanton’s past climate efforts."

This is a very important community outreach event that will guide Pleasanton’s environmental policies for years to come. Opportunities for preserving and enhancing the things we love about Pleasanton abound. I’m hoping new residents will join in, as well as long time residents who have participated in past community planning events.

This is great idea, as long as it doesn't cost me one penny or one iota of inconvenience, I'll be fine with it. The US has made so many advances in reducing pollution the last 50 years that our climate is one of the cleanest in the world. What you need to do is travel to China or India or even Russia and hold your climate control workshop with them, as they are the true polluters of the world.

"This is great idea, as long as it doesn't cost me one penny or one iota of inconvenience, I'll be fine with it."


Not a great idea - and it's going to cost a lot more than a penny.

I suspect it will involve some kind of ban/restriction on anything that is natural gas and/or gasoline powered in the city. Never mind the increased costs and disruptions to the businesses and residents to supposedly "save the planet".

So stupid.

When global warning didn’t pan out they changed the name to “climate change”.

The climate changes, that’s what it does. And it’s not being impacted by man.

Btw, Michael Mann (he developed the infamous hockey stick curve that kicked it all off) just had his lawsuit tossed out of court against National Review.

His day of reckoning, and that of his hockey stick, is coming. Eventually he will have to show the data behind his curve. He has yet to do that.

And did you notice the climate WAS NOT a focus for the left when Trump was in office?

I did.

I wonder why? <— sarcasm
