Reach Codes and Climate Change

Menlo Park Council Members -

At your next council meeting on Tuesday, you will be asked to approve a
priority for a staff analysis of Reach Codes.

While I don't live in Menlo Park, but in Cupertino, I share the
consequences of Reach Codes and other policies to mitigate climate change.
Actually, I won't share the consequences, but my children and grandchildren
will. At the age of 74, mankind has foolishly and unnecessarily put
trillions of tons of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Most of these have
been added since the early 1990s when the first international reports were
released and Climate Scientist James Hansen reported on this topic in 1984.
Had governments acted then, we would not be in this desperate situation
today. Today, the best we can do is reduce the accumulation of more damage
for the next generation.

It is our responsibility to modify our ways so our children and
grandchildren will not suffer any more than is necessary.

Please be leaders as Palo Alto has and, at least at this stage in the
process, direct your staff to examine the issue.

Thanks, Gary

Fight for Renewable Energies! Save the global ecology; create jobs;
eliminate dependence on foreign oil; reduce military requirements
