Group offers to help with council conflict

On behalf of Los Altos Community Voices, the statements of the Los Altos City Council members at the April 27 meeting convince us that it is past time for the council to accept responsibility and act with a sense of urgency to take concrete steps to resolve the divisive and untenable situation between Councilmember Lynette Lee Eng and activist Kenan Moos.

We are ready and able to assist you, as needed and desired, in developing a solution.

Accelerate transition to renewable energy

Following is a response to the article “Flying cars? New Los Altos business looking to make it a reality” (Town Crier, April 28).

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” said Eleanor Roosevelt.

I believe the future will belong to Los Altos company ASKA for manifesting their beautiful dream of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles. As a diehard fan of the movie “Back to the Future,” I know that flying cars were supposed to be here in the year 2015. We seem to be at least a decade behind where we should be in transportation and energy innovation due in part to our addiction to fossil fuels.

To usher in this better future we dream of, we need to break our addiction and accelerate the transition to renewable energy. The very best way to do this is to support Carbon Fee and Dividend climate legislation, as proposed in H.R.2307. Economists estimate H.R.2307 will cut carbon emissions by 30% in the first five years, help us achieve net-zero carbon emission by 2050 and create clean energy jobs in the process.

Reduced carbon emissions, a healthier planet and flying cars – what’s not to love?!
