    Given the recent temperature induced failure of electric infrastructure in Texas, is the entire grid, generation and distribution system up to the challenge?

    This question has been answered live

    Adam Wiechman 04:08 PM  

    I appreciate the urgency for significant local action (i.e. transitioning built infrastructure) conveyed so far! How can we channel this urgency towards the “soft infrastructure” (institutions) that governs our cities?


    Climate change was not just a result of failed energy systems/other built infrastructure, but also a result of non-responsive or slow-to-respond institutions largely due to the way they’re structured (i.e., role of science and marginalized populations)

    Jana Segal 04:13 PM  

    Water is huge issue for Arizona. Mines use as much water as they want and their tailings pollute our waterways.


    The 1872 Mining Law that defines hardrock mineral extraction as the “highest and best” use of most public lands, tying the hands of federal and local governments when U.S. or foreign mining interests want to mine our public lands. 

    The federal government treats mining as a right on public lands - one that trumps other uses. That means they allow mining even if it threatens special places such as Grand Canyon or pollutes important water sources such as the Colorado River. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency hardrock mining is the number one polluter in the country and has contaminated the headwaters of 40 percent of our western watersheds. It allows mining interests to take hardrock minerals such as copper, gold, silver and uranium from our public lands without paying any royalties to the American taxpayer.  


    We need to repeal The 1872 Mining Act.  Do you support repealing it?

    A.S.U. was experimenting with cool road surfaces, is that research  still ongoing?

    This question has been answered live

    Jana Segal 04:18 PM  

    We need water to run air conditioners and to irrigate those trees that cool neighborhoods to combat urban heat island affects.  Tucson is an example in Green Infrastructure and rainwater harvesting. Phoenix does much less rainwater harvesting. What can you do to expand rainwater harvesting and GI in Phoenix?

    I might have missed this but will this recording be shared?

    Jason Franz 04:20 PM 

    Yes, it will be posted to Youtube and shared.

    Alex Mangelsdorf 04:19 PM  

    Could planting more trees in the city increase the strain on the water supply, and are there any steps we could take to avoid this strain?

    Question for Elgie:  Is anyone doing a pilot related to the electric school buses and using them to send electricity back to the grid during peak hours?
