Tian Harter for Senate answer to the Alameda County questionaire:
I am a grassroots activist who has been beating my drum about the
climate change issue for many years. I see walking the campaign trail
as my way of exercising the First Amendment "right to petition the
government for redress of grievences." The grievence I have is that
our current way of life is unsustainable. The problem is the way we
use energy, and the sollution is going to have to be changing our
habits. This is why I tell everybody I can "DON'T BE FUELISH!" We
need to stop voting for oil companies at the gas pump. My goal is to
visit every Green group in California during this campaign to share
my ideas with them. To find out more please visit tianharter.org.
Before I became an activist I was an electical and software engineer
for about twenty years. I saw the technology change dramatically,
and I saw many jobs get exported. It was only near the end of that
time I learned about the toxic waste plumes we had left behind in
developing the industry. The basic problem was that the whole
management structure felt that there were "more important things"
than the environment and future. I still think a paradighm shift
that changes this is key to a sustainable future. If elected I will not
rest until we have a more sustainable society. A vote for Tian is
a vote for that change!
