Pass EV Ordinance

Dear Council Members,

It is of paramount importance that as community leaders, you take every
available action to mitigate climate disruption. That is why I'm strongly
urging you to pass the ordinance requiring more EV charging in new
residential developments.

Clearly we already beginning to feel the effects of changes to the climate.
They will get worse, but we decide how bad they will be through our
decisions. The only responsible decisions are those that leave a more
livable world for our children.

In addition, many working people would like to stop spending money on
gasoline, which they know is harming our environment, as well as car
maintenance and smog checks, but can't because they don't have access to EV
charging as they live in apartments. They would like to have the choice to
do better and save money, and we should provide that choice.

For a Cooler Climate Future

Policy makers must focus on making low carbon behaviors easy: "More often
than not, it is actually behavior that determines attitudes, not the other
way around. If our lifestyles are far from climate-friendly, then our
attitudes tend to follow." - Stoknes, 2015
