Liccardo loses supporter
over Russian sister metropolis

Having learn the article within the Mercury Information (“Zelenskyy calls out San Jose for conserving ties with Russian metropolis,” Web page A1, June 7) I’ve a response for Mayor Sam Liccardo and his place on Ukraine and the way it applies to San Jose.

Liccardo is incorrect, and historical past would be the proof. How unhappy and ironic this text falls on a day recognizing the final word sacrifices of so many on D-Day.

Having lived and labored for nearly 40 years in San Jose I vote and keep out of the trivial native politics. Right here comes my last level.

Liccardo now has zero help from me on any material he might supply.

Council, mayor ought to
rethink sister metropolis

Re. “Zelenskyy calls out San Jose for conserving ties with Russian metropolis,” Web page A1, June 7:

Disgrace on the San Jose Metropolis Council and Mayor Sam Liccardo for refusing to terminate the Sister Metropolis relationship with Ekaterinburg, Russia.

This relationship permits Vladimir Putin to say diplomatic ties with the west. One wonders if the council would have maintained a relationship with Nazi Germany throughout World Battle II.

Water restrictions ought to
apply to all in California

On Might 26, 2022, The Mercury Information and East Bay Occasions editorial boards’ editorial, “Will Gov. Newsom ever require necessary water cuts?” (Web page A6) says: “The issue with empty threats is, after some time, individuals simply cease listening.” Sure, individuals do cease listening to empty threats; metaphorically talking, additionally they take heed to halfway-told lies.

Rachel Becker’s Might 10, 2022, article states, “Whereas the information displays water utilized by residents and industries statewide, it doesn’t embrace agriculture, which accounts for roughly 40% of the full water used within the state.” The halfway-told lie is that nobody mentions agricultural producers. On April 8, 2015, Vauhini Vara’s article said “that farmers have two extra choices for buying water. They’ll purchase water rights from each other and pump as a lot groundwater as they like.”

New restrictions ought to implement for residents and native companies and agricultural producers.

Nuclear could also be boon
in transition from gasoline

Re. “Local weather change might drive giving up gasoline stoves,” Web page A1, Might 31:

Aw, the irony. Gasoline stoves are being phased out, and new developments usually don’t have any gasoline hookups. Although cooking with electrical energy is problematic in eating places, the actual drawback is assuming that electrical energy will all the time be there on the flip of the change.

Nonetheless, extra electrical hookups, scorching summer time air con, charging electrical vehicles and telephones, coupled with the drought that has lowered reservoir ranges which can be placing hydroelectric producing dangerously near not working – maybe someday quickly flipping the change will do nothing.

So, now what? Gasoline-powered producing crops? Every part is linked. Repair one drawback, create one other. Maybe nuclear energy may be the reply.
