Climate Change & Sustainability

As a life-long climate activist, I support efforts to address climate change at a local level. While it's true that most greenhouse emissions come from industry-wide practices which limit the impact of individual choices, changes at the city level can have wide-spread benefits including healthier air, improved adolescent development, and lower temperatures.

Let’s ensure it stays that way for future generations by increasing public transit access, encouraging cleaner transportation, and decreasing the number of private cars on the road. We need to build upon Walnut Creek’s efforts to transition to clean, renewable energy. According to the latest census, 47% of people who live in Walnut Creek live in multi-unit complexes and have limited access to make sustainable changes to their housing. We should incentivize new construction to add solar and wind installations, not simply switch to electrification.
