Trees are my hope for the future.

Sewing machine? Knowledge of Asian textile Import sources?
If you have a sewing machine, I wanna make some stuff tonight, tomorrow, all weekend to get to burning man.
If you are bringing a sewing machine out to the playa, that's great too.
If you are in import / export, biz, I would like your help.
FLUFFY scarves / Magic scarves / tube scarves are $8-11 in stores.  But $1 wholesale by the (1,000?)
from Korea, China, etc.  Hopefully soon these will be local organic cotton hempy things.
Ok so I wanna get a whole mess of these and sew them up real quick before and during burningman
Can you help me get a Ton?   Can you help me figure out how to get a ton?
They don't actually weigh a lot so there's not actually much petroleum industry in each one... sigh.
No time to order, therefore: tactics sought for getting a whole bunch from local retailer/ wholeslaler at near wholesale price.

Sat. 8/26 - Water Playshop - Connect to Your Urban Watershed
Saturday, August 26 10:00am-1:00pm

SOMA Creativity Center 81 Langton Street, Suite 13
(Folsom @ 7th/ 8th St.) San Francisco, CA 94103
(near folsom/7th across from Brainwash cafe)

The Urban Alliance for Sustainability (UAS), a project of Global Exchange, has launched a monthly playshop for the local green community. Each month we present a different theme which is tied into our newsletter, movie night and playshop.

We invite special guests from local organizations who provide inspiring solutions on the current subject.

An inspiring afternoon of insight and inspiration about our relationship to our water and our watershed.  Ben Jordan, local permaculture designer, civil engineer, biofuel guru and water wizard will bring his knowledge and solutions to share in a polylog playshop where we can all learn from each other.

What can I do to conserve water?
Where does my water come from?  What's in it? Where does it go?
What would the sustainable urban watershed look like?
What about composting toilets?  What about roof rainwater catchment?
What about greenroofs and impervious surfaces?  What about water filters?

Bring all these questions and more for an adventure into a visionary salon where we will leave with a set of tools, tips, tricks, technologies and a vivid mental tableau for a shared common, clean, healthy, vibrant watershed!

Burningman from space, DURING EVENT 2005:

Water trucks wet the streets with water sucked up from cow ponds. BEWARE.
Please tell the BLM you do not want cattle grazing on public land.

)'( WATER for Burningman! Save your engine, save your transmission, your car is working hard enough.
Travel light uphill, then fill your 5gallon and 1 gallon water bottles at
DONNER Summit REST STOP, 20 Miles West of the CA/NV border.
Donner Summit rest stop is just before Donner Lake, which is before Truckee.
Donner Summit is right after Boreal Ridge going towards Reno on Highway 80.
There are several campground type faucets that you can park right next to!  )'( 

How many of us will have engine or transmission failure on our way to bliss...
Hopefully now we will all make it complete.

If you are going to give your car a tune up, do it now.

For sure change your oil. Check your engine coolant.
For sure Properly inflate your tires.
Check your Automatic Transmission fluid (ATF)

I travel with a quart of ATF and a quart of oil in easy reach in my car.

I always check my fluid levels (Oil/ATF/radiator)
Before I go uphill towards Santa Cruz or Tahoe,
or whenever I notice any loss of power.

Water from Brian:
If you are driving a truck, another GREAT way to do this is to get a food-grade 55 gallon drum and a "space blanket" before you leave.  Optional but highly recommended are either a stand for the drum and a petcock or a siphon pump.  

Fill it at a location like this (we used to wait until we go to the high desert, but anyway), making sure the drum is in a location that it can be moved later, since it will weigh about 350 pounds when full!  

Once you get to the playa, put the petcock in, put it on the stand, and put the blanket over it.  You will be AMAZED that the water is still relatively cold by the time of the burn because of basic thermodynamics:  heat travels to cold.  In the day, the heat is from the sun, which is reflected by the blanket.  At night, the playa gets cold and whatever heat that was collected by the drum escapes into the atmosphere as the night breeze gently blows over the drum.  The drum basically acts as a heat battery, and the blanket acts like a one-way valve!

Four people in an RV, with a drum like this and a full load of water on the chassis will have indoor showers for a week and water to spare.  Plus you save incredible amounts of fuel and waste from empty containers.  The drums are sturdy and are easy to reuse year after year, but if you don't want to store it, you can spread the love on the playa by giving it to one of the permanently mobile.  THEY WILL ALWAYS APPRECIATE YOU FOR THE GIFT!

 )'( Lumber recycling. Tired of watching all that good wood go up in
smoke after the event? So are we. We're setting up a nail pulling
and lumber grading station at Camp Katrina ( approx 3pm and
Esplanade ), where we'll clean and sort all the lumber left over  )'( 

 )'( Materials recycling. Not a green project per se, but FYI we may
also be collecting usable tents/sleeping bags/camp stoves etc. @
Exodus for use in future deployments to disaster regions. TBD for
certain, but wanted to let you know  )'( 

 )'( Remember the Flower? The Flower returns to the playa with its fearful 
counterpart, a Venus Fly Trap. This year the two flowers will dance 
together, with special performances as follows:

Wednesday night at the Temple of Breaks,
Thursday night at the ARTery,
Friday night, a choreographed show near the Man,
Saturday night post burn choreographed show at Red Nose District. )'( 

 )'( GREENING THE BURN-- Taking the climate-changing heat out of the burning 
of the Man!  to figure out the climate change 
impact of burning The Man, and how to "offset" that impact, making the 
burn climate change neutral.

CoolingMan estimates that the burning of The Man will generate 
approximately 100 tons of greenhouse gases (GHG). To more than 
neutralize these emissions, CoolingMan is seeking 110 tons of GHG offsets.

Offsets come in variety of ways. You can plant a tree, which is good for 
one ton, or buy a ton's worth by investing in renewable energy projects, 
like wind and solar. Buying a ton is anywhere from $5 to $10, and we're 
estimating high so we can make sure we're able to meet our goal.

Cool it forward by going to to help us 
completely offset the impact of the burn before the start of Burning Man 
2006--there you can also figure out your theme camp's impact, and offset 
that as well. It's easy, cheap, and makes a huge difference. Be sure to 
report your participation to CoolingMan so they can track and then 
report on our progress.

We're off to a great start!  We've already received $180 in donations, 
enough to offset at least 18 tons!

 )'( LNT Tour of the City: Camps and now we got art
Hi there Greenies
This is a banner year for Leave No Trace and I am happy to share that many of the camps and art installations featured in the Earth Guardians LNT Tour will also reduce their impact on the earth.  This year our application asked camps if there was anything specially Green about them. There were a few openly Green ones and a Teal camp.  
After 5 years featuring model theme camps, we’re now excited to have a sister LNT Tour of art. Five art installations volunteered to be our first models.
These are beautiful and engaging pieces that also reflect the LNT principles. They are simple and complex, low tech and high tech, recycled, renewable and fossil. Some claim zero impact, others will purchase carbon offsets. They all share a commitment to Leave No Trace on the playa and in many ways reflect Green values.
If you know of other theme camps that shine LNT, please invite them enter our Camp of the Day contest, which awards recognition and rewards to the camps that best exemplify LNT.  
Here’s list of theme camps and art you can visit to see working examples of Leave No Trace practices. The Tour is self guided so you can choose the ones to
visit. There will be display maps and information at the Earth Guardians Pavilion.

# Sep 6, 7pm San Rafael
Last year, the Bay Area responded with open arms to the devastation 
caused by Hurricane Katrina by taking into their homes the 
bewildered dogs and cats who had been abandoned and left to suffer 
the wrath of the storm alone. In observance of the one-year 
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Marin Humane Society and In 
Defense of Animals present a special one-time screening of Dark 
Water Rising: The Truth About Hurricane Katrina Animal Rescues, 
Wednesday, September 6, 7pm, at the Smith Rafael Film Center (1118 
4th St., San Rafael). Award-winning documentary film director Mike 
Shiley will make a personal appearance to introduce his new film and 
answer questions, and Captain Cindy Machado of the Marin Humane 
Society will present information about disaster preparedness for 
people with pets. A $10 suggested donation will benefit animals in 


More than 2,500 of the four-legged Katrina survivors were brought to 
the Bay Area for care prior to being reunited with their families or 
placed in new, loving homes. They were the lucky ones — more than 
35,000 companion animals perished in New Orleans due to disaster 
policies that didn't take pets into account. Dark Water Rising 
introduces us to the courageous people who traveled to New Orleans 
from around the country and risked their own lives to rescue trapped 
and starving animals. The film also begs the question: How can we 
protect our pets if something like this happens in the Bay Area? 

Haunted by his memories of the dead, frightened and emaciated 
animals he saw while filming in New Orleans, Shiley says, "It's my 
deepest hope that this film motivates people to put pressure on 
Congress to pass the PETS Act so that never again will anyone be 
forced to evacuate without their pets."

The roles MHS and IDA played in the aftermath of the hurricanes
The Marin Humane Society was centrally involved with pet rescue 
efforts in the aftermath of the hurricanes last fall. Leading the 
first-ever pet airlifts to transport animals out of the disaster 
region, 2,500 rescued dogs and cats were flown to the Bay Area as 
part of MHS' Operation Orphans of the Storm. Animal shelters and 
rescue organizations around the Bay cared for these animals until 
they could be reunited or rehomed.

"I will never forget the looks of relief and gratitude in the eyes 
of the dogs and cats as they emerged from their airplane crates into 
the arms of volunteers waiting to care for them," says Diane 
Allevato, executive director, Marin Humane Society. "We were happy 
to help these animals, but they deserved much better — they deserved 
to be evacuated with their families."

In Defense of Animals also played a key role in disaster relief 
efforts for animals, sending volunteers to the hurricane-stricken 
area to rescue animals and transport them to regional shelters with 
the ability to care for them. IDA's Project Hope volunteers are 
still involved in transporting animals out of the affected areas.

"This powerful film of bravery and compassion documents the courage 
and dedication of caring people to right the wrongs of others," says 
Elliot Katz, DVM, president, In Defense of Animals. "Viewing it made 
me more determined than ever to advocate for disaster relief and 
preparation. I hope that the harsh lessons we've learned from this 
disaster have not been in vain and that our national leaders will 
commit to animal evacuation plans being part of all future disaster 
planning around the country."

Tickets for the screening of Dark Water Rising will be sold at the 
door beginning at 6pm. Space is limited. For further information, 
please call In Defense of Animals at (415) 388-9641 or the Marin 
Humane Society at (415) 506-6256.

# September  8 - 21 Announcing Camp Democracy
Announcing Camp Democracy
Cindy Sheehan to Move Camp to National Mall
Cindy Sheehan and activists in the growing peace movement plan to 
move Camp Casey to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., September 
8 - 21. The camp on the Mall will carry the name Camp Democracy at 
Fort Fed Up. Organizers intend the camp to bring together peace 
activists with activists for social justice, united in demanding a 
shift of public resources from war to the needs of people. 
Participants will lobby Congress to end all funding of the 
occupation of Iraq, and will demand that Congress hold the Bush 
Administration accountable for the falsehoods that launched the war 
and the abuses of power here at home that have accompanied it. Camp 
Democracy is launching an outreach effort to include organizations 
in the planning of the camp's activities, which are all in the 
initial stages. Organizations already on board are listed on the 
Participating organizations and guest experts and celebrities will 
provide workshops and training sessions on a wide range of issues, 
as well as on communications, voter registration, nonviolent civil 
disobedience, lobbying, organizing, media production, and 
performance arts. Congress Members and congressional candidates will 
take part. Local elected officials will instruct attendees on 
participation in local government. Musicians will perform concerts. 
New films will be shown on a large screen. Participants will acquire 
useful skills while demanding fundamental change. 
Individuals can sign up and plan to come:
And volunteer to help:
Organizations, large and small, can sign up to participate:
Organizations, trainers, speakers, educators, and performers should 
propose activities that they believe would benefit thousands of 
citizens who want to work for change: 
Internet activists, and anyone with a blog or a website, can help by 
posting this information and link to the website using this link:

A camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration of the rule of law. 
Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas, to Washington, D.C., to 
create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on 
righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush 
Administration and Congress. Tents will provide activist activities, 
trainings, workshops, and entertainment on these themes: War/ Peace/ 
Nonviolence | The Constitution/ Accountability/ Censure/ Impeachment

# We are not going to work on 9-11. That might be good for some of us, but what if.....



maybe the message would hit home faster to the Bankers and Government. 
Does anyone want to run some figures to see how much the Corporations would lose in profits for our one day of standing? Would it take more than one day to express our choice?

# September 11-12th, 2006- 9/11 Film Festival

Premiere of new film of David Ray Griffin- "9/11 the Myth and the Reality"
September 11, 2006, 6:30 pm
Grand Lake Theater
3200 Grand Lake Avenue
Oakland, California

Doors open at 6:00 each night, trailers, previews and shorts start at
6:30, film premieres start at 7:00. Q & A / discussion with the
filmmakers follows each night.

This will be the world film premiere of David Ray Griffin's talk given
at the Grand Lake Theater March 30, 2006 to a sold out audience.
Griffin's presentation was videotaped with six cameras, and 9/11
filmmaker Ken Jenkins has illustrated the film with hundreds of
graphics and clips. This video will likely become not only the
definitive Griffin DVD, but will likely serve as the Loose Change for
the older generations. Griffin condensed the highlights of his first
two books on 9/11 into a dynamic presentation. A slightly shorter
version of the same talk was given April 3rd at the prestigious
Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, and much of the footage in the
film is from that location. The premiere will be followed by a
question and answer session with filmmaker and 9/11 activist Ken

This is from a founder of Veterans for 9/11 Truth
This Sept 11, 2006 a new era will dawn on America. On that day the 
people will convene and move through the legal recourse needed to 
redress the government. At no other time in our nations history has so 
important a moment drawn near. As the war of lies passes the $500 
Billion debt mark and 3000 US dead along with 100,000's in the nation 
we "saved", as freedom and liberty has been sold out to a federal 
police force, as all Americans have been affected by corporate and 
limited liability governments and municipal codes, time has come for 
the change

Doors open at 6:00 each night, trailers, previews and shorts start at

In August 2005 Jim Hoffman and Don Paul recorded presentations for the
second convening of the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on the Crimes
of September 11, 2001. Later they spent many hours with videographer

Together we are cultivating a culture of sustainability and social equity that honors our interdependence with all life. Green Festival unites green businesses, social and environmental groups, visionary thinkers and thousands of community members in a lively exchange of ideas, commerce and movement building fun.

Network: Connect with like-minded individuals and organizations who are committed to the possibility of a better world. See Network.Get Involved! Learn about organizations effecting positive and sustainable change in our region, our country, and the around the planet.

Socialize: Have fun interacting with others, for the sheer joy of it. Meet interesting people who share common interests. Spend some time at the food court and listen to local musicians. Parents, find a place to relax in the Family Rest Stop.

GE golf course super grass contaminates wilderness, no eco-terrorists arrested yet

An experimental variety of genetically engineered bentgrass has escaped from its test plot in Oregon and has been found growing in the wild as far as three miles away, according to scientists from the U.S. EPA. The biotech plant, designed for golf courses, has not been approved by the USDA, but has already been found dispersing among native grasses in six different locations. Scientists say they don't know how will behave in the wild but admit it may have a strong advantage over native grasses, and could therefore irreversibly damage the ecosystem as it spreads. According to Tom Stohlgren, an ecologist at the US Geological Survey's National Institute of Invasive Species Science, the experimental bentgrass "can tend to outcompete other species...It doesn't need to sexually reproduce - it's like The Blob. It could potentially hit rare species or national parks."
