Do not allow Diesel back up power for Data Centers

If the health and well being of the people who the government is supposed to serve mean anything at all, please do not approve diesel generators as “back up” (or any other) power for data centers.  I always thought the Democrats were concerned about “climate change” and fossil fuel pollution, but it seems most members of our County Board are ignoring these and other concerns of the people they were elected to serve.  Please treat others the way you would wish to be treated yourself.  The people deserve to be respected. Health should never be compromised for profit.  We have inalienable rights to life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but if diesel generators are approved then these rights will be basically meaningless.  I honestly cannot believe that the sound, air and water pollution diesel generators would produce would even be legal.
