Electric vehicles have massive batteries which can not be easily disposed of, and are toxic to the environment. Electric buses are very expensive. And cannot be driven very far, especially driving to valley schools for sports events.

Because the Democrats have no plans to increase electrical infrastructure to accommodate increased demand while under false pretense (no such thing as global warming) eliminating abundant and reliable fossil fuel.

Cold weather can create problems, replacing batteries is very expensive and where do the old ones go...into landfiles. Humans probably contribute to enviromental problems but are not the main cause and nothing we do will stop climate change, the earth will do what it has been doing since time began.

EV batteries are NOT good for our environment not to mention the poor children digging for the minerals just so the green idiots can brag how well the USA is doing in the name of climate change rhetoric. If those were our children we would all be up on child abuse charges facing years in prison.

Just when I think you can't get any more ridiculous, you come out with the nonsense. Even your own church acknowledges climate change, A SCIENTIFIC FACT.

Don't listen to CB. An increasing number of scientists that agreed that climate change is a result of human activity are rethinking their position. Stating that CO2 may not be the cause of climate change. Science is not fact, science it theory. And Scientific theories have been debunked in the past

No, for a variety of reasons, we should not go the route of electric vehicles.

Its a super expensive way to virtue signal. Not to mention all the other failures of the creation of EV batteries, slave labor, all while using natural fuels to create the electricity.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
