This includes both mitigation to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions and adaptation to protect from impacts like Sea Level Rise, including a less predictable water supply and rising temperatures. Mountain View has embraced both, but a tremendous amount remains to be done. I will champion building the protections our shoreline city needs against SLR. I am the Vice President of Carbon Free Mountain View which champions sustainability.
My water resources career centered on stream restoration and protection of San Francisco Bay. I serve on the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission as the State Senate appointee. BCDC is actively working to improve policies to protect San Francisco Bay from sea level rise and protect the habitat of the Bay.
