This environmental campaign is just camouflage for Stanford. It covers itself with this environmental paperwork, which will satisfy government regulations while allowing itself to plan to develop and build on its lands. And while these plans aim to preserve and protect the salamanders and the frogs, Stanford (in its corporate landowner guise as the Stanford Land Management Company) has shown no willingness to assert leadership to reign in its leaseholder businesses in the Research Park and make them environmental leaders. Instead, over the years companies in the Research Park have dumped tons of pollutants at several dozen sites in the Research Park into the groundwaters, noxious liquids that will remain in the aquifers in Stanford lands and under private homes bordering the Research Park for decades. Stanford feigns inability to act on these matters, and it continues to allow these tenant companies to use unlimited amounts of extremely toxic materials that could be released and endanger the health and safety of a large number of homeowners and workers who might be caught in a cloud of poisonous gases.
