The Pleasanton city council recently approved installing video cameras on all the waste collection vehicles. City attorney assured it is to monitor what is being thrown away. They not interested in who is disposing of colostomy bags, related very private medical matters. Spinning it will not prevent harm. It is invasion of privacy. More government intrusion into citizen privacy.

"If I compost, will it really help the climate crisis?"

No, because the "climate crisis" is a manufactured one by the political left to increase their power over the citizens/promote government dependency. Regardless of anyone's efforts, current emissions targets will never be met. Or they will changed to be made more strict later on by the one party rule in the state.

It will be just a question of time until yet another round of intrusive, micromanaging set of policies (like cameras taking pictures of people's garbage) are introduced to further restrict how people live, work, get from place to place, etc. We'll have "climate lock downs" where cars can't driven on certain days/times, gasoline can't be purchased when people want it, homeowners will given an emission "allowance" per residence and monitored for compliance, etc. Or you'll be eventually forced to get rid of anything and everything that uses fossil fuels - or be fined/punished if you refuse to do so. Politicians, as usual, will not have to follow the same rules.
