Officials requested cannabis analyzers to detect an unofficial profile and distinguish marijuana from hemp, but without county provided public information the public can hardly be expected to recognize a permitted versus an unpredicted grow. The dilemma is two-fold: the process is complaint driven where only the sheriff's department has jurisdiction over unpermitted growth, and the county has failed to create a growing ordinance to specify which chemicals pesticides and herbicides are allowed and which would be prohibited in order to protect watersheds plants and animals.
  • 01:20:00 The speaker discusses the benefits of rooftop solar and the importance of campaigning to educate and raise the alarm about the potential of implementing the Rods of Demeter.

  • 02:15:00 This video is about the health of children and adults suffering from asthma and COPD, and the community being educated and engaged if the information is spread by word of mouth and online. County officials must take urgent steps to transition all buildings to all-electricity, in order to future proof new structures and prevent the expansion of dead-end fossil fuel infrastructure. There are nearly 60 jurisdictions in California already having an all-electric reach code for new construction, and the county must also develop a sustainability action options report and establish a target date for when all methane gas must be decommissioned in existing buildings. Continued collaboration and engagement with labor leaders is critical to ensure fossil fuel workers have access to high road jobs as the region pursues decarbonization. Environmental justice communities are prioritized, and county officials must demonstrate a commitment to climate action equity by taking these steps.
  • 02:20:00 This video discusses how 8-31-2022 San Diego County Board of Supervisors Meeting aims to reduce emissions by transitioning county landscaping crews and contractors over to battery-powered lawn maintenance equipment, help secure funding for an equitable trade-in and buyback program to assist sole proprietors and small landscaping businesses make the transition to electric landscaping equipment, and enact a ban on gas powered leaf blowers once funds are available for number two above. The health hazards posed by gas powered lawn maintenance equipment are an environmental justice issue for workers, children, and our most vulnerable populations. We hope the county will join the 50-plus cities and jurisdictions across the state who have already passed electrification ordinances and have a plan to phase out natural gas systems from our buildings.
  • 02:25:00 Edawkin, a contributor to the crazy agenda, gives a talk on the circular economy. She wants us all to rent everything and own nothing, and also mentions converting all county electric accounts to renewable energy by 2030.

  • 02:45:00 The organic materials ordinance update was presented to the Board of Supervisors and requests that they adopt a recommendation to amend the zoning ordinance and regulatory code. This supports the department of public works' strategic plan to reduce waste and the county's regional decarbonization framework. There have been changes to organic material management in the last year due to changes in state laws and the update is specifically about making it easier to set up composting practices in the unincorporated area.
  • 02:50:00 This slide illustrates how the zoning ordinance in San Diego County shapes organic material processing. Farms, businesses, and homeowners are allowed to process their own organic materials, while community gardens are limited to processing materials from garden members. The proposed project would build on the progress the county has already made in organic material processing and make it easier for those who want to set up composting practices.
  • 02:55:00 The 8-31-2022 San Diego County Board of Supervisors Meeting provides an overview of the local planning permits that are relevant to this project. The project will expand composting options by reducing the required local planning permits, while taking public health and safety into consideration.

03:00:00 - 03:25:00

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is considering a new ordinance that would allow for the composting of food waste. Some members of the public are concerned that the ordinance is too voluntary and may lead to job losses, but others argue that it is a necessary step in transitioning the county to a more sustainable model of waste management.

  • 03:00:00 The proposed ordinance changes would allow community gardens to process organic materials from community members, as well as allow agricultural operators to process their own organic materials on site. Commercial composting would be allowed on any farm outside of villages and can be processed with lower level permits than the existing conditions.
  • 03:05:00 The speaker discusses the benefits of food waste being turned into compost, noting that this ordinance will allow local businesses to partner with farms to create a regional closed loop system. She also notes the importance of education in order to ensure that composting is done correctly.
  • 03:10:00 Local 230, a labor union representing waste management workers in San Diego County, is proud of its new ordinance aiming to transition the county's waste management system from a linear to a circular model. However, Audra Twist, one of the two members of the public speaking against the ordinance, argues that the proposed pilot programs are too voluntary and might lead to the destruction of thousands of jobs.
  • 03:15:00 The video discusses San Diego County's Board of Supervisors' decision to include bugs as part of their food system. The narrator, Nathan, expresses his concern that this proposal is not sustainable and will lead to a meat shortage. He also points out that the proposal is based on green gas and dubious claims about the benefits of renewable energy infrastructure. The video concludes by noting that the project will benefit residents, farmers, and gardeners, and that the use of organic material as part of regional decarbonization efforts is standard practice.
  • 03:20:00 This YouTube video is a transcript of a San Diego County Board of Supervisors meeting, in which public health educator Kelly McCormick asks the board to provide factual information about the health effects of marijuana. Unfortunately, due to industry pressure, the bill that would have required warning labels on marijuana products was gutted. This leaves it up to local jurisdictions to perform this basic public health duty, which people cannot make informed decisions if the only information they receive comes from the marijuana industry.
  • 03:25:00 This video features parents who have firsthand experience with marijuana use and how it has affected their children. They urge other parents to be aware of the dangers posed by high concentrations of marijuana products, and stress the importance of county investment in effective consumer education.
