Environment

When I was a child, my mother signed me up as a member of Greenpeace, leading to one of my earliest memories — the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior. She also added my name as a donor to the World Wildlife Fund. Suffice to say, I have been environmentally conscious for my whole life, in an almost literal sense. I do not consider it opinion to say Global Climate Change is the greatest challenge facing the human experience. I see the economy as a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment, recognizing that without an environment we can thrive in, there is no economy.

Our City, therefore, must continue our forward-thinking endeavors, acting as a laboratory for our state, our nation, and our world. The more our City can do in moving toward green energy, such as solar or wind-powered facilities, businesses, and homes, the better. To this goal I support denser housing developments while simultaneously ensuring they are environmentally sustainable. Though an idealized principal, I feel public services should be free, and in this I include Muni. The more we motivate our residents toward walking, biking, and public transportation, the better. The fewer cars, or at least green-powered cars replacing polluters, the better. As your Supervisor, I will promote clean energy and affordable rates, and will earnestly consider the environmental impact of any relevant proposal.
