See Salmon Spawn in Marin (santa rosa)

Here is some information on how to view coho salmon spawning in Lagunitas Creek and its tributaries. Thursday's storm raised water levels enough to kick off the season, which lasts into early January. 

 Here is a picture taken Saturday, 12-03 at the Leo Cronin Salmon Viewing area: 

 In the center of the picture is a female, and just above her is a large male. Note the red color of the male. The blur at upper left is another smaller male, which is hovering in hopes of a shot at fertilizing the female's eggs. Note the light color of the gravel around the female. This is a redd or nest, which she has dug by thrashing on her side. At the bottom of the picture is a much smaller male, called a jack, which is also hoping to get some action. The larger salmon spend about 3 years in the ocean, while the jacks are males that return after only 6 months in the ocean. 

 The salmon move in pulses about a day after each storm, so timing is very important. Be sure to ask other people in the area if they have seen salmon, word of mouth is the easiest way to find them. 

 Check this site for updates, tours and detailed information: 

 Here is a brocure and map of viewing areas:

Bad News For UK Energy      Can you say " peak oil "

« ASPO USA: Denver World Oil Conference

Bad News For UK Energy
On the 27th October the DTI published the following information, thanks to Nick Rouse for bringing it to my attention:

  For the three months June 2005 to August 2005 compared to the same period a year earlier:
  - production of petroleum fell by 16.2%;
  - production of natural gas fell by 17.0%;
  - production of coal and other solid fuels fell by 24.9%;
  - electricity produced from nuclear sources rose by 11.8%;
  - electricity produced from wind and natural flow hydro fell by 4.4%.
  Energy Trends Table 1.1

What I find amazing is why this wasn’t news. Why wasn’t this the talking point of the day with John Humphrys quizzing Malcolm Wicks in the morning, John Snow presenting some scary graphs at 7pm and Jeremy Paxman giving over Newsnight to the emerging crisis, it certainly deserves the coverage.

The 17% fall in natural gas is the most concerning in my opinion since there isn’t the import or storage capacity to make up such a huge difference even if the gas was available on the market. We can probably discount the increase in nuclear as an anomaly since we know the fleet is being decommissioned over the next decade or so, I’ll put it down to there being one or more reactors down for maintenance in 2004 that are operating again now.

I quoted this graph a few weeks ago from the DTI Energy Trends publication, it can now be updated with the latest data.
That doesn’t look pretty does it? I had to extend the y-axis to fit August on the graph! The extraction rate for August 2005 was 54.7TWh compared to 73.3TWh, a decrease of 25% year on year.

Most of the attention (well what little attention is on resource depletion at all!) seems to be on oil. Oil depletion and the term peak oil is becoming known, a few dozen books have been written, peak oil is mentioned in the newspapers every week or so but gas hardly gets a mention.

Even amongst the peak oil advocates gas is usually dismissed by saying the global gas peak is a decade or more after the global oil peak. This misses the point though. I think gas depletion will cause acute and more immediate problems in certain parts of the world than global peak oil and long before the global peak gas extraction rate. Yes, by certain parts of the world I mean the UK. America are also likely to have difficulties with gas this winter with the hurricane damage only compounding what was already looking like a very tight situation. 

The difference is that oil can be easily transported, in 1970/71 when American oil production peaked it wasn’t (too much) of a problem since the rate of extraction decline was low and more oil could be imported from overseas. A local gas peak is different. Post peak decline rates are likely to be faster than oil and it is incredibly difficult to import from overseas. This is the problem the UK now faces and I don’t see how we can overcome it. I doubt we will be able to replace beach gas lost through depletion and even if we do find a willing vendor they’ll be able to name their price whilst offering us little or no security of supply. 

With oil, gas, coal and soon nuclear energy production crashing, the UK must face reality, we must either reduce demand in a controlled fashion in line with reduced energy production, import energy at immense cost (if even available) or face serious disruption. 

 Some Solutions to the Sheople Problem

I would support the idea of moving Congresscritters (AND their staffs) back to 
their home districts, both because it would reduce costs (Washington is NOT an 
inexpensive city to live in) and because it would tend to make them (AND their 
staffs) more responsive to the people they supposedly represent.

# *Marbled Murrelets “Fly In” to Sen. Feinstein’s Office in Protest** *

*Nanning Creek Grove Logging Threatens Endangered Bird*

WHEN:  Tuesday, December 6, 12 noon
WHERE:  Office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, One Post St., (at Market) San Francisco
WHAT:  Marbled Murrelets, sea birds that depend on old growth forests for nesting, will “fly in” to Sen. Feinstein’s office to protest destruction of their habitat in rare ancient redwood forest on California’s north coast. Besides the murrelets, activists will bring photo representations of the old growth grove.
WHY: Ancient redwoods, some over 15 feet in diameter, standing over 300 ft tall, likely to be thousands of years old. are being logged in prime marbled murrelet habitat on Maxxam/Pacific Lumber land.  This elimination of habitat of the murrelet, listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is allowed under a provision of the 1999 Headwaters Deal, negotiated by Sen. Feinstein as well as other federal officials and Maxxam CEO Charles Hurwitz.
In recent weeks, activists have locked to trucks, climbed and maintained vigils high in the branches of giant trees, and challenged US Fish & Wildlife Service’s permitting of this plan in the courts, but logging of massive trees on steep hillsides continues.

#  EMERGENCY RALLY for the Ancient Redwoods     CALL TO ACTION! 
    from the Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters 
Come out and Stand Up for the Ancient Redwoods! 

EMERGENCY RALLY !!  Tuesday Dec. 6 at noon 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office 
One Post St. @ Market, San Francisco 


On Veteren's day, Maxxam/Pacific Lumber (PL) started logging in the Nanning Creek Grove in Humboldt County, and have now moved into the ANCIENT REDWOOD GROVE that includes trees OVER 15 FEET IN DIAMETER and up to 2000 years old. 

Earth First! and Humboldt Forest Defense activists have erected tree-sits in the branches of some of the massive trees, and have held vigils at the logging road gate outside Scotia, including a lock-down action last Monday when four people were arrested. 


Nanning Creek Grove is east of the company town of Scotia and comprises the largest chunk of in-tact unprotected habitat for the federally listed Marbled Murrelet in California. 

Logging in this rare habitat, which should be protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is allowed under provisions of the 1999 Headwaters Deal, negotiated by Senator Feinstein and other government officials and the infamous corporate raider Charles Hurwitz, CEO of Maxxam Corp. 

The murrelet is listed as threatened under the ESA and as endangered under the California ESA. Permission granted by US Fish and Wildlife Service for ScoPac to log this critical habitat flies in the face of a 2004 report commissioned by that same agency that stated that current logging practices in Northern California threaten the small seabird with an 80% probability of extinction in the next 55 years, and a 100% probability of extinction in the next 95 years. The 250-acre plan was cynically named named "Bonanza" by PL.

The Bay Area Says Stop Global Warming NOW!!! 1pm, Wednesday, December 7, 2005, SF City Hall Steps (Polk & Grove). Bay Area environmental and social  justice groups, San Francisco Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi and Tom Ammiano, concerned residents, and a GROVE of GIANT CALIFORNIA REDWOOD TREES join in spirit 10,000 delegates from 189 countries, THOUSANDS of activists in the streets of Montreal, and hundreds of solidarity actions around the globe to say NO TO GLOBAL WARMING and what we can do about it!! As the first UN Climate Summit since KYOTO unfolds in Montreal (Nov 28--Dec 9), Global Exchange, Rainforest Action Network, and many others, invite you to a PRESS CONFERENCE and SHORT MARCH from San Francisco City Hall to the Federal Building to demonstrate broad support for immediate implementation of local, state, and federal policies that stop global warming, fast becoming the overarching issue facing the planet today!

Global Exchange action has been described as entailing "an

=v= I am concerned that this even *not* be yet another feel-good
eco-photo-op for Newsom & Co.  A few months back, Newsom signed
some sort of green cities pledge on World Environment Day, and
got excellent press for it nationwide.

=v= Shortly after that, he cut back Muni service AND raised its
fares AND devoted more money to extend police state tactics to
the Muni system.  I shouldn't have to spell this out, but that
is the opposite of a green cities approach, as it discourages
people from using public transit and encourages them to drive
cars, pollute the air, waste gas, and fund oil wars.

=v= No more feel-good "oh isn't this green" photo ops.

# Benefit for KJ @ Synchronize Wed Dec 7 10pm - 2am Il Pirata  2007 16th St. @ Potrero SF 
 Hello everyone. As some of you might or might not know, KJ is nearing what is most likely the turning point in his 3 year legal battle with Homeland Security. Tomorrow is a deciding court date for him, and may mean whether or not he is allowed to stay in the country. In order to make sure that he has a good defence, he has had to pay for some legal fees, which have amounted to quite a lot of money. Hopefully, tomorrow will allow KJ to breathe a sigh of relief at the outcome. 

We at Synchronize are proud to call ourselves friends of KJ, and have offered to use our weekly party to help him raise some cash for his legal fees. This Wednesday night, we'll have KJ spin, along with our resident, BARRATT. We'll also be asking for a minimum donation of $5.00 to help KJ in his time of need. He has given this community so much with his presence, his music and love, and dedication to this city of ours. We wish to give him something back through this fundraiser. Hopefully we will be celebrating a positive outcome in his case as well! 

Once more, SYNCHRONIZE is an open, unaffiliated party that always provides the friendly atmosphere that it is loved for. Music brought to you by our guest DJs, as well as by the resident Synchronauts: Zul, Sentient, Barratt and Random. 

Come get some tasty drinks, dance and chill out with the friends and family! We hope to see lots of your smiling faces there this week. :)  Cheers!

# Thursday December 8, 7-10pm: Completing Relationships
Suggested Donation or Trade: $30 - 10
Location: Berkeley (near Rockridge BART)
RSVP: fryday (at) (please let us know the date
and name of the evening)

Perhaps there is a relationship in your life that you
would like to  have closure around - or shift to a
place that serves your life goals more perfectly. It
could be that you want more space in your life for a
new future relationship or that you find a past
relationship is still  lingering
in a new relationship. This will be a welcoming,
supportive space to complete that relationship and put
it to rest with compassion and love.

We will engage in a variety of exercises including
meditation, sharing, writing, witnessing, and silent
contemplation to support you in the process of
completing a relationship as it currently is. In doing
so, you may 
find space to create a new relationship with the same
person, or continue the process of letting go of an
old relationship. 

It would be honor to have you with us as you continue
your journey of completion. Please let us know if you
are considering coming that  night, so that we may
expect you as well as keep the group small and
intimate.  Space
is limited, so a word with you would be great!

Do you have sacred objects, altar objects, art or
doodads you are done with and would like to offer to
other people in the community rather than throw them
away? Join us for an afternoon potluck gathering to
warm up Heartwood,
our beautiful fuzzy :palace, and exchange all those
objects so that they can continue their journey with
someone willing to love them as much as you did! :)

We will gather and share food and stories around the
offerings you bring, and most importantly we will
share beautiful moments of freedom together during
this time and era of commercial madness. And for us,
this will also be a time to have you to join us in
celebrating a new age of our
relationship, and age of living, creating and
visioning together in service of the community.

Ah, and for this one, we'll just invite ALL OF YOU and
see how many people we can fit in our new place. No
limitation, no restriction in numbers. We want you, we
want to welcome you, we want to give you our love and
appreciation until we drop! :)

# The Heydey of Natural History Thu Dec 8 7:30-9 pm Free.
Never has the status of science been held in higher esteem and the  
public taken a bigger interest in natural history than during the  
mid-19th century in America and Britain. This was a time of great  
voyages of discovery, when fabulous fossil beasts were first  
unearthed and put on public display. Most of today's renowned science  
museums, including the California Academy of Sciences, were  
established amid this enchantment with natural history. No middle- 
class home was thought complete without a display of butterfly  
collections or stuffed birds. John Dillon, Science Director at the  
Randall Museum and President of the San Francisco Amateur  
Astronomers, will explore the nature and extent of this fervor and  
how Charles Darwin's Origin of Species influenced it. San Francisco  
Naturalist Society general meeting. For more information, contact

# Fri Dec 9 How the CIA Manipulated the UN in Iraq - The Commonwealth Club 
  How the CIA manipulated the UN in Iraq 
  Friday, December 9, 2005 
  11:30 a.m., Check-in; 12:00 p.m., Program 
  Club Office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco 
 $8 for Members, $15 for Non-Members 
Phone: (415) 597-6700   Email: club commonwealthclub org 
 Former Chief weapons inspector for the United Nations Special Commission in Iraq, Scott Ritter, will share his first-hand account of how the CIA manipulated and sabotaged the work of UN departments to achieve the U.S.’s hidden foreign policy agenda in the Middle East. Labeled a hero by some, a maverick by others, and a spy by the Iraqi government, Ritter was the UN's top weapons inspector in Iraq between 1991 and 1998. Before working for the UN he served as an officer in the US marines and as a ballistic missile adviser to General Schwarzkopf in the first Gulf war. 

 In charge of searching out weapons of mass destruction within Iraq, Ritter was on the front lines of the ongoing battle against arms proliferation. His experience in enemy territory served as the basis for his book Endgame, which explored the shortcomings of American foreign policy in the Persian Gulf region and alternative approaches to handling the Iraqi crisis. Ritter went back to Iraq in 2000 to film his documentary, “In Shifting Sands: The Truth of UNSCOM and the Disarming of Iraq,” which focuses on the disarmament of Iraq and its implications for U.S. foreign policy. 

 In 1991, Ritter joined the United Nations weapons inspections team, or UNSCOM. He took part in 52 inspection missions, 14 of them as chief. His team in 1995 discovered missile guidance equipment that Iraq had bought from Russia through a Palestinian agent. He led the UN weapons inspection team into Iraq in January of 1998, only to be blocked from the weapons sites by Iraqi officials.

# FLOWERS FOR PAKISTAN Sat Dec 10 9:00 AM 25th and Harrison  Mission District SF
The Pakistan earthquake has killed thousands of people and promises to take more lives this winter. We in the United States can share our wealth and our compassion with those in need by donating to the relief effort. 

The Plant Compassion: Flowers for Pakistan Project is an act of civic participation to raise awareness of the devastating October 8 earthquake and to raise money for relief. Volunteers will plant hundreds of donated flower bulbs in a San Francisco public park, which will act as a conduit of our goodwill and support to those affected by tragedy. Additionally, the donations you make in honor of this project, will go directly to the relief fund Doctors without Borders, who are delivering urgent medical relief to severely wounded people. 

Our flowers will bloom in the spring, which will be evidence of our continued support to our brothers and sisters who will still be struggling to rebuild their lives. The act of planting a life in the earth is real as well as symbolic. Time of course is of the essence. 

Planting party is December 10th, 9am till noon, in Garfield Park. Meet at Harrison and 26th street in the Mission. Wear closed-toed shoes, long pants, and layers. Tools and snacks provided. 

Please visit for more information about the planting or to make a donation. email gavinsuz at hotmail com to volunteer. 

This project is supported by The Neighborhood Parks Council and SF Recreation and Park Department. Peace.

# To All Animal Artists ~
Animal Switchboard (AS) is looking for a logo for its various purposes (e.g., letterhead).  The general idea is a couple of telephone poles with a wire between them with a couple of birds perched on the wire, and a squirrel (or two) crawling up one of the poles.  If you want to elaborate on that, feel free - but remember to keep it simple as it's just a logo - not a huge picture - probably best to just to draw something with dark pencil or black ink.
If any artist out there would like to take a crack at it, you can e-mail your work to Virginia Handley, AS President, at virginia animalswitchboard org or snail mail it to Virginia at Animal Switchboard, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CA 94123 - or just bring artwork with you to upcoming "Animal People Party," hosted by AS at Fort Mason Center on December 11, Sunday, 2 PM to 4 PM. 
If your art is chosen to be the AS logo, there will be a prize - and, of course, some publicity for your artwork.

 FAQ from living foods website: (or )

 What do raw/living foodists eat?
 Raw and Living Foodist eat all fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sea vegetables, and other organic/natural foods that have not been processed. In some instances, there are special ways to prepare the foods (example: most raw and living foodists soak/sprout nuts, seeds and grains before consuming them). For some delicious recipes, see our recipe section!

 Other websites:

 PLEASE, no meat or other flesh products or derivatives, dairy, eggs, sugar, or processed food over 105F). If possible, avoid soy products, corn, wheat, honey, and peanuts or clearly mark their presence in your recipe, to help those who are sensitive to these common allergens or those who wish to avoid exposure to foods that may be genetically engineered (or GMO-contaminated).

# Panel Discussion:  Int'l Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers
 Dec 17 10AM-2PM $5 donation
Dec 17th, Third Annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex  

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers is meant to  
call attention to hate crimes and violence against sex workers all  
over the globe. Originally thought of by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and  
started by the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA as a memorial and  
vigil for the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle  
Washington, it has grown to be a day for strategizing to end these  
acts as well as remember the victims. Over thirty cities around the  
world have participated in this event.

This year Sex Workers Outreach Project is expanding events to cover  
the entire week of December 17th so that we may diversify the forums  
for discussion around violence against sex workers.

The Panel Discussion portion of these events on Dec. 17th from  
10AM-2PM will focus on both identifying forms of violence against sex  
workers, including structural violence and stigmatization, as well as  
thinking of solutions.  Panelists will include sex workers' rights  
activists, sex workers, prison abolitionists, law enforcement, and more!

Our tentative schedule for this entire week is as follows:
Thursday, December 15th: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Memorial and Community Discussion
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar x Bonita

Saturday, December 17th: 10 AM-2 PM
Ending Violence, Discrimination and Stigma Around Sex Work
1515 Webster St.
Panel discussion in the morning followed by lunch and afternoon  
strategizing. $5 donation requested.

One of the ways to contribute to this event is to submit original  
artwork and or written word to be displayed at the candle light vigil

# Unsilent Night Wed Dec 21 6:45 PM Free

"Unsilent Night," composer Phil Kline's free, all-volunteer outdoor  
boombox holiday concert, returns to San Francisco for its third  
annual performance on Wednesday, December 21, 2005, at 6:45 PM.

A moving piece of ambient public art, Unsilent Night can be compared  
to a holiday caroling party, except that participants don't sing.  
Instead, each carries a boombox playing a separate cassette, CD, or  
MP3 that becomes part of the piece. In effect, Kline and his co- 
performers become single elements in a huge, mobile sound system.

Performed within the confines of the city streets, Unsilent Night  
reverberates off the cars and buildings, resulting in a magnificent,  
drifting cloud of shimmering, echoing sound. The 43-minute piece  
includes chiming bells, choral voices, and various electronic  
effects. (Kline cites Brian Eno and Charles Ives among his influences.)

Kline has performed Unsilent Night in Manhattan every year city since  
1992. In San Francisco last year, some 500 people took part. This  
year marks the first chance for iPod users to participate, as Kline  
will make MP3 files of the piece available on his website.

Participants are invited to bring a boombox to Mission Dolores Park  
at 18th and Dolores Streets, gathering at 6:45 PM. After Kline  
distributes tapes and CDs among the players, the group will begin the  
piece, strolling a mile-long, predetermined route though the Mission,  
Noe, and Castro districts. The event will be held rain or shine.

Unless you are in favor of invading and occupying innocent countries for
their oil, Killing and torturing innocent people and turning the whole
World against the United Stated and bankrupting the US Citizens and
driving the US into a depression that will make the depression of 1929
look like a Sunday picnic* during  which we will probably be invaded and
taken over during our weakness caused by it.
During the1929 Depression the US population was much smaller and
people lived on farms or in houses that had a yard where they could grow
vegetables to get by during the depression and people helped their

# FYI the US runs a school of torture at Ft. Benning, GA
Previously called School Of the Americas (SOA),
now called Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
Congress demanded SOA be closed down. So they simply renamed it.
SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (a year before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

The Great Owl Invasion
obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.
