Join us Monday, March 3rd at 6:00 pm at the Redwood City Library for a very special viewing of the award winning film “Gasland II” about the increasingly widespread and disturbing practice of "Fracking".
If you own your own home, have you checked out your options for solar panels recently? Costs are way down. You can probably add solar power to your home and save money at the same time.
The Sierra Club advocates strongly for developing alternative energy, and particularly for energy generated close to where it is used. Rooftop solar is the perfect solution, so the Club has developed a program with Sungevity, a solar power provider, to provide rooftop solar power to our members (and to the public, no reason to discriminate)at a discounted rate.
When fluoride is put in water, it goes in everything. Even without fluoridated water, Americans are overdosed with hydrofluorosilicic acid, a toxic waste of fertilizer, in their food and bottled beverages. USDA says it is in most fruit juices, black teas and white wines as well as raisins, and cold cereals. Dry soy baby formula is also very high. Cryolite fertilizer is 4% fluoride and used on grapes and cereals.
The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) will put fluoride into the water for some 845,000 more people in Santa Clara County in the next three to five years. This is a cause for concern. It is unwanted and unneeded medication for the vast majority of us and our environment for a problem we don't have, weak teeth. Since the 1950s, organizations and local government have put fluoride in water, saying it will prevent cavities in children but recent studies prove otherwise.The FDA has never tested it as safe for humans.
DO IT YOURSELF PROJECT - Recycled newspaper waste can liner
A San Francisco Chronicle reader wrote to the newspaper: "I am a lazy and inconsistent recycler and worry about my carbon footprint only when I'm in the market for new shoes. I have the requisite green recycling bucket under my sink though am never quite sure how to line it. I know I can buy mass-produced biodegradable liner bags, but buying something simply to recycle it seems backwards."
