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.

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
