"Brown said she was looking forward to when staff "will drill down exact actions that can make the biggest impact" like what to do about gas powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers which are "very large contributors" to Tri-Valley emissions."When we drill down to those actual actionable items, it will be exciting to see that the small changes can make the biggest improvements," Brown said."

There is nothing "exciting" whatsoever about politicians telling the citizens what items they are going to ban/prohibit possession of next to supposedly "save the planet". We have already seen that renewables can't supply the energy needs of the state - no matter how many of these same people pretend/wish otherwise.

"Jill Buck, president of the local nonprofit Go Green Initiative, told the Weekly, "My first concern is people, so the things that would relieve any human suffering" are her top priority for the Pleasanton community, including proposed action items like adding fast EV-charging stations along transportation routes and promoting cooling centers during warmer weather months."The cooling centers, I think are a must -- even this past summer I think we needed them," Buck said. "I am very concerned about cooling centers because I know some of our homes don't have air conditioning, and the ones that do, not all citizens can run those. Heat-related illness and health impacts are very real, and it's very hard on our seniors, especially.""

The state not having enough electricity to run the air conditioners (because of reliance on renewable energy) is very "real" too. Exactly how does a fast EV-charging station "relieve human suffering"?
