On global warming: Work together, move quickly

Original post made on Feb 1, 2008

I was disappointed by the forum. Having the lead speaker discuss a state bond issue for high speed rail when, in answer to a question from moderator Supervisor Liz Kniss, only one person had taken public transit to the forum (located on El Camino Real adjacent to the San Antonio Transit Center), made as much sense as discussing getting a PhD when you dropped out of high school.

The coming disaster will be when people realize that the crisis was made in Washington to justify more control over the economy than communism attempted. Clinton admitted the other day that the cure was a lowering of our standard of living.

Hmmm...spike of natural gas use in Los Altos Hills?? How big of a spike?

Isn't that spike offset by the fact that those folks pays millions to keep their housing density low, and maintain, at their own personal expense, multitudes of trees that would otherwise be ripped out to build high density housing?

Sounds like it was nothing more than a meeting to convince people to pay more taxes for yet more services nobody uses...
