The Palo Alto ban on using natural gas is now illegal based on the Ninth District Court ruling. It is also illogical and naive. Palo Alto needs to stop telling others how to live.

If they really want to save the Global environment, Palo Alto's zealots would ban the sale or use in Palo Alto of any product made in China. Between their coal power plants, lack of any real pollution controls & the pollution caused by shipping the products to the USA, China is the real environmental problem. No Chinese imports to Palo Alto would have MUCH more environment benefit!
