If cars are the main source of pollution, then the easiest solution is to make alternative transportation easier. There used to be 5 times as many bus routes in Palo Alto. What happened to them?

Caltrain is overcrowded and falling apart. When are they ever going to electrify it and increase capacity?

We are spending millions of dollars on highway projects like the new Oregon Expressway project that puts more cars on the road and makes it more dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists. We should spend part of that money on new sidewalks and bike lanes.

The earth is not a virgin.
