Unneeded gas station: Letter to the Editor

Unneeded gas station

EDITOR: I would like to call attention to the proposal for a new gas station to be built on the corner of Highway 12 and Llano Road, west of Santa Rosa. I would also like to call attention to the climate crisis we are experiencing and the need to respond.

Investing in a new gas station is investing in infrastructure that we must move away from if we are to quickly make this transition away from fossil fuels. Also, there is no need for a gas station here. There already are seven within a 5-mile radius. Why not put in an electric car charging station?

There are many reasons to be against this gas station. Mostly, it just makes no sense to add gas stations that will only hasten the demise of a livable planet.
