Re: “Cemetery and Enviros Reach Deal on Oaks

What should also be considered is the deplorable custom of American burials. Embalmed bodies put into heavy caskets which are placed into cement squares put into the ground. It's a terrible waste of resources. Cremation is a little better but releases a lot of green house gases and uses a lot of energy for the burning. It would be wonderful if Mountain View Cemetery could have a section for burying people in shrouds into the ground so that their nutrients could be returned to the earth. These ecological burials are already being done in some states.

Re: “Oakland Marathon Changes Course

Why do these huge events continue to be run by out-of-state owners? The Oakland Marathon causes bus detours and many Oakland businesses like Fairyland lose a lot of revenue. The Art & Soul Festival is another example of an event that could be placed in a better location that wouldn't interrupt transportation.

Who decides that Oakland residents suffer from the noise and inconvenience of such events? It certainly doesn't seem to be the residents.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and Councilmember Abel Guillen Lukewarm to A's Laney Ballpark Plan

Development in Oakland, especially near the estuary needs to consider climate change, and the environmental impacts on the migratory birds that use the estuary and Lake Merritt. There also needs to be a consideration of the impact on neighborhoods with more traffic. Lakeshore and Grand Avenues are already so impacted with special events such as marathons and the Warriors Parades that it is impossible to enjoy our neighborhoods from the added noise and crowding where we are sometimes boxed in.

Re: “New Oakland Park to be a Giant Wooden Deck

This project is horrible on so many levels: access to schools, stores, hospitals because this huge development is on the other side of the freeway and railroad tracks. There is no bus service there so people will depend on cars. Imagine the backup when trains block the roads. The impact on the 5th Ave. businesses has not been considered, the impact on wildlife habitat and the fact that the 9th St. Terminal brought in $7 million a year to Oakland for the port business there. No thought to global warming and water rise not to mention the horrendous financing and gifts to the developers again at taxpayer expense. Yet, this was a project that Jean Quan was proud of.

The worst part is, this project is typical of the sloppiness under which Oakland is and has been run. Citizens need financial accountability and respect for our lives and the land and the law. If Oakland refuses to handle the basics we will just find ourselves in a greater mess with a bigger population and even less open space and amenities.

Re: “Banking on Coal in Oakland

Where is my Councilmember, Abel Guillen on this? If we don't protect the environment, we have nothing to sustain life. I can guess where Assemblymember Bonta is since he supports nuclear power until we can switch to green supplies and never answered about the Bakken Crude trains that are also expected to go through Oakland, Richmond and Berkeley.

Re: “Records Indicate that Gibson McElhaney Used Her Council Office for Personal Gain

How interesting that around the same time McElheney voted to give 53 more acres of Knowland Park to the Oakland Zoo developers which were required by Fish and Wildlife as mitigation for the Zoo's environmentally damaging expansion project. This expansion passed in spite of no financial accountability and transparency. Neighbors will certainly have their privacy taken away by the added lights, roads, and noise. The public will lose open space and the rare plants and animals that live there will be seriously impacted by a project that is supposed to honor native CA animals that have been extirpated by development.
