I am not at all worried about any ill effects from "Climate Change".

What worries me is the looming economic crisis: Debt, deficits, the pension crisis, unfunded liabilities, and the bankruptcies of Social Security and Medicare. These will really hurt the unborn, young people and the less fortunate.

How important to you are the following community benefits provided by the implementation of climate solutions?



What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures within your home or neighborhood?
Frequently ride electric bicycle to work - it uses lot less energy than electric car and helps reduce traffic congestion.


What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures within your school, workplace, place of worship, or other location outside your home in which you spend significant time?
Workplace can retrofit to low-e windows. Also add more car chargers, which are now in over demand. One cannot always charge at work because there are no open charging spots.


What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures at the community-scale? What would you like the City to do?
Work to find a transit solution, means to develop alternatives to solo driving in a car, especially cars using gasoline. This will be your biggest issue in the near future for being carbon neutral. There is now no way to reduce carbon from transportation other than electric cars because there are no significant alternatives to driving.


Please use this space to provide any other thoughts or feedback you may have about the City’s work to update Fremont’s Climate Action Plan.
I would not put much effort into retrofitting common appliances. Cooking does not use much power, using a gas stove don't cause much harm and cost to retrofit can be high. Concentrate on HVAC and transportation. By the way, almost no one installs energy efficient hot water heaters. You should check the payback and ability to regulate use of hot water heater efficiency. Here I mean installing energy-star gas hot water heater when a new hot water heater is installed as a replacement. I can state from experience that few people install energy-star gas hot water heaters when a hot water heater needs replacement.
