Letter: The future of California
January 31, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Assemblymen Phil Ting and Kevin Mullin hosted a coffee house meeting for people in South San Francisco to discuss their concerns about the future of our state.

I am not a resident of South San Francisco but do have serious concerns for our state due to global warming. We must stop burning fossil fuels and shut down our nuclear power plants. We must stop bringing in the dirty tar sands oil and stop the fracking for natural gas another fossil fuel. We don’t need more oil; we need less. Germany and Japan have committed to getting off fossil fuels by making regulations that all homes are equipped with two-way electric meters: measuring the intake of the electricity and measuring the output if the homeowners have solar panels. These governments are loaning the home owners the money to buy the panels and insisting that the power companies buy the power the home owners send out on the grid.

The best a home owner now can do with PG&E is to get to zero, but if paid for the power they put out on to the grid they would have enough to pay for the panels and some money in their pockets to spend. We need this kind of a system in California. Such a regulation would decrease our use of fossil fuel, which is good for the environment and put some spending money in the pockets of the home owners, which is good for our economy.

Absolutely, yes
I would think so
Maybe one more would make them a dynasty

Madison Bumgarner is a dynasty!
