Re: “Borrowing Bay Water in Alameda

Seawater is living water; it's habitat. You shouldn't use it for cooling machinery. Use groundwater instead. Alameda has a lot of aquifer space. Yes it was ruined a century ago by pollution and overpumping, but maybe a cooling system could be combined with a remediation project. It would be real good to have more storage for fresh water, not just in the Great Valley but here.

Re: “Tie Points

potential for violence and slut shaming seems like a reactionary and alarmist take on hetero sexual dynamics. isn't getting pregnant or an std a bigger consideration with women?

Re: “California's Massive Pot Bust

Thom, this paragraph is right there in the story. It's fairly long and hard to miss. Is your issue that I should have measured it by county, or....?

And thanks to the fact that local governments get to decide whether cannabis can be sold within their borders, about 80 percent of the state's cities and towns are not served by a cannabis shop. As a result, only 600 or so retail shops are operating in California. In Colorado, which has about one-sixth of California's population, there are about 560 shops up and running.

Re: “Updated: Dark Money Group Paid for Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's Inauguration Festivities

The problem is not that this dark money group exists, it is that silent political campaign financing is not against the law. In addition, this particular group of characters who provide support for Mayor Schaaf are the same folks who had favored access to City Hall during the Brown administration as Mayor. Apparently, in almost 20 years, nothing has really changed. This has always been my primary concern with Libby Schaaf. She owes her political existence to her historic ties to Brown and her former boss, ex city council member and Port Commissioner Ignacio De La Fuente. It should be no surprise that the folks behind those two are also propping her up. Oakland will never move forward unless there is change in the back rooms of City Hall. 20 years of the same group of people influencing policy in the Mayors office is enough.

Re: “Updated: Dark Money Group Paid for Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's Inauguration Festivities

I am appalled by the huge number of really tall buildings going up downtown.
Today, I could barely get through on Webster St. because new building on both sides of the street. Downtown is losing its character in addition to the wonderful residents that make this town diverse....

Re: “Borrowing Bay Water in Alameda

I wish the degree warmer was expanded on . Is it Celsius or Fahrenheit? Will it remain low during winter when bay is 40 and in summer when it gets almost 60 ? The plan to warm the oceans for data seems like another free lunch for the tech industry.

Re: “Why Is There a Housing Crisis?

Dudes. Get real. Many property taxes are low. RE evaluation does not happen here. People stay in homes forever. Ranches take up tons of space. No room for people to spread out like in connecticut. Let builders build high rises. Build a burj in california. Build 20. Solve the housing shortage.

Re: “The Problem With Recycling

It would be great if this comment list could become a much needed logical and scientific investigation of the basics of recycling. No such thing has ever publicly existed because recycling is simply accepted and urged on a tired and uncaring public by zealots and taken for granted by the public because some minimal reuse can be seen.
It's simple: if you design products for discard, and provide the social institutions for discard, they will be discarded. If you design for reuse, and provide the social institutions for reuse, they will be reused. HOWEVER, if you design for discard and then attempt reuse, you will fail. As we have failed.
Aluminum cans (the favorite model of the recyclers): These have a reported three month cycle from creation to disposal. One-half of all cans end up in dumps every three months. Run the math for four three-month cycles per year and 15/16ths of all the cans created in January are in the dump by December. Some model!
Glass bottles: the highest reuse modality for all products is the function that they were laboriously created for, not their simple, cheap materials. Glass materials are just silica, or sand, the cheapest of all earth's bounty. The way to use containers is to REFILL them, not smash them. Smashing into cullet means carrying heavy silica around in large trucks to a distant factory, then expending all the same fuel to melt it as would have been needed for raw material silica. It's an insane idea, with no environmental benefit. But refilling containers that never need to be trucked around and melted, saves all of the fuel that made them initially. It's a HUGE benefit. Deposits are a bad idea because it breaks the train of history. If a consumer empties a wine bottle and rinses it, he KNOWS it is clean and can refill it. If a distributor gets in a deposit bottle HE DOES NOT KNOW its history so must treat it like it's severely contaminated and clean it with harsh chemicals (sodium hydroxide is the cleaner of choice) which then end up as unnecessary chemical pollution. Refilling by the original user requires no such harsh treatment. Let's have a discussion about how to effect such easy refilling.
Join me in weighing the pluses and minuses of various ways to reuse all of society's goods, but let's not stick to personal consumption. We also need to discuss buildings, cars, airplanes, streets and industrial equipment some day.

Re: “How the California Environmental Quality Act Fails the Environment

In addition I would like to add (can't seem to edit my comment).
Regulators walk a thin line. although they strive to protect the environment, if they push polluters too hard, the industry, such as developers and the chemical industries, pushes back very hard.
Regulators are not well paid. They join the various agencies out of desire to do good for human health and the environment. They are a most committed and dedicated bunch of good folks.

Re: “Borrowing Bay Water in Alameda

I was at Alameda Beach with my granddaughter the other day and the water was warmer than I can ever remember (been going for over 40 years) ... its also mid June ... I was sorry I did not have my thermometer with me ..

Then I remembered the Pacific off Golden Gate is warmer this year resulting in less food for whales .. and that there has been a die off of many more whales this year along the West Coast than in many years .. connection ... ??

And isn't there a whale in Alameda Point area (still there??) .. was it looking for food as it came into the bay ...

So 10,000 gallons of water per minute = 600,000 gallons per hour =
14,400,000 per 24 hour period .. Thats a LOT of water .. i don't care if its cooling your servers .. I care about what happens when you are dumping 14 million gallons daily of slightly warmer (really just 1/2 degree ??) every day for many years into our bay ...

Here's a suggestion Put on SOLAR panels ... buy lots of battery backup .. talk to Elon .. cover your parking lot .. or all the parking lots in Alameda with solar panels .. but leave the Bay alone .. there are a lot of animals that live and depend on that ..
