Merchants of Doubt
Come see this award-winning film showing how a small group of "pundits for hire" have sown doubt about scientific findings -- starting with denial of the health effects of tobacco, toxic chemicals, and now, climate change. With a satiric touch, this documentary lifts the curtain on "spin" and the industries that pay for it.
Saturday, March 7 — 7:00 pm
Trinity Church - 330 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park
Free — registration not required, but seating limited to first 200 guests.
Sponsored by Acterra.
See the film trailer at http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony/merchantsofdoubt/
Please spread the word to others interested in the psychology and politics of climate change.============================================================

MAKE AN EVEN GREATER DIFFERENCE in 2015!
COOLCALIFORNIA CITY CHALLENGEBurlingame finished in 7th place with 373,000 points
Thanks! to Everyone Who Took the Challenge
We earned $2,851 for Green Projects in Burlingame!
The CoolCalifornia City Challenge is a statewide competition engaging thousands of households in cities across California to save energy, reduce their carbon footprints and help build more vibrant and sustainable communities.
The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) is a coalition of the nine San Francisco Bay Area Counties implementing large scale, cross-sector energy management strategies on a regional level. BayREN was approved as a pilot by the California Public Utilities Commission in November 2012.
Access the latest Dashboard here. Past reports will be archived at www.bayren.org/about. The dashboard will be updated on the website monthly.
Home Upgrade is experiencing rapidly increasing uptake as a result of recently reported program design changes, County local outreach efforts, and increased contractor recruitment. This 3-pronged approach of program improvements, local outreach and increased contractor participation had yielded record breaking uptake in the month of September, exceeding 100 Home Upgrade reservations in one month. BayREN currently has nearly $1.6 million in incentives reserved or paid for both Home Upgrade and Advanced Home Upgrade Assessment Incentive projects. Learn More.
Water Conservation - What You Can Do
In 2008, and for the first time in California since 1991, the Governor proclaimed a statewide drought and called for implementation of numerous measures to reduce water consumption. And, by most accounts, the Bay Area will continue to experience conditions that warrant a greater emphasis on water conservation. The following are some tools and information that can help you conserve water and save money. The City also provides this flyer with useful tips.

Honeybees are a vital link in our food chain
A petition is being circulated by The Beekeepers’ Guild of San Mateo County to show support for simplifying and standardizing codes and ordinances about beekeeping throughout San Mateo County. The Bay Area has a patchwork of uneven rules on beekeeping and some towns ban it outright.
Please support our efforts to convince our local governments to lead the way in providing solutions by reforming antiquated policies.
To sign our petition to make San Mateo a bee-friendly county, please copy and paste this link:
Or visit the website for the Beekeepers Guild of San Mateo County and click on "Help the Honeybees! Sign Our Petition."
Share this information with your community in San Mateo County and ask them to support our efforts.
