What is your top environmental concern and how would you address it?

Jessica Cohen

City Council, District 3

There are several environmental concerns for Austin that I think should be addressed immediately. 1, The COA should purchase and shut down the coal using Sam Seymour Power Plant. 2, The COA should focus on all the additional drivers on the road due to increased population/ride shares and work to limit their CO2 output. 3, The COA should consider water cooled solar power banks on Lady Bird Lake or Lake Travis. These could be easily implemented without being obtrusive. 4, City Council should pass a resolution to move away from buying our green energy credit to producing it ourselves.
