Suggested Call to Action... how to email your county commissioners to BAN THE FREAKING FRACKING!
Email address: (or your local county)
Sample Email: Dear Boulder County Commissioners,
Today's Denver Post online article (shown below) should be carefully investigated by you, our elected officials, so that this doesn't happen to our Boulder County soil, air, water, aquifers, natural systems, children, families, workers, health, schools, homes, farms, animals, and property values. This predictable failure is completely unacceptable and the damage done is irreparable. This must be prevented from ever happening to our community and our county, along with the unintended consequences of this toxic industrial extraction process to our childrens' future. A permanent Ban on Fracking is the only solution to assure our health and safety in the future. Sincerely, Jane Q. Citizen

Dear friends and colleagues,

The Solar Thermal Alliance of Colorado is honored to invite you to the formal release of the Colorado Solar Thermal Roadmap  Tuesday January 24th!

The roadmap identifies a formidable economic opportunity, which will lead to tens of thousands of good, new local jobs, billions of dollars of new economic activity, and similar additional economic impacts in reduction of health and environmental costs of displaced fossil fuels.

150 stakeholders across academia, research, industry, non-profit groups and elected officials have endorsed the vision of STAC: to make Colorado a global leader in solar thermal adoption, installation, manufacturing and R&D, to boost Colorado's economy, generate jobs, and build a sustainable energy future. A core taskforce under the leadership of CRES & COSEIA dedicated a year to provide in-depth analysis of the opportunity, and develop implementation recommendations.

NREL established how this technology performs better in our State's natural environment than anywhere else in the country. Solar thermal technologies address the largest energy footprint of Colorado buildings, and can also offset a significant part of our electric usage and peak demand.

Come and take part in this landmark ceremony and press release, very close to downtown Denver, organized by COSEIA, CRES and the Denver Housing Authority.

When: Tuesday, January 24, 2012

11:30 doors open - 11:45 Inauguration Speeches - 12:15 System tour and light refreshments

Where: Denver Housing Authority - Mulroy Apartment complex, 3550 W. 13th Ave, Denver 80204

Event will take place in the outdoor community area on the south of the property, under the new Solar thermal system

(if weather, the reception will take place in the community room on the west side)

Come and take part in this landmark ceremony and press release, very close to downtown Denver, organized by COSEIA, CRES and the Denver Housing Authority.

Tony Frank, Executive Director, CRES

Correction.  The Tom Greco Open House in Louisville is April 14th, not April 4th.  See you there!
Comment by Les Squires on April 5, 2011 at 10:56am

 Thomas H. Greco, Jr. -- one of two or three "fathers" of the rethinking of the role of our monetary system (local money, credit clearing, alternative and complementary currencies, local resilience, free money, free banking) -- will be guest in Kate's and my home April 13-19. All week -- we're available for public and private events, interviews, workshops, consulting, 1:1's, Rockies hikes.  Such a wonderful opportunity to learn about "money" -- what it is and what it isn't, how it serves you and how it exploits, new systems that focus on alternative ways of "offering" our skills and resources and meeting our "needs".  If you have ever "traded" or "bartered" with another person or family, and you like the result, you must meet Tom.  See brief bio below.


Three Scheduled Meetings week of April 13-19


1. Open House in the Kelly-Squires Home.  779 Nighthawk Circle, Louisville Colorado. April 4 - 1:00-9:00p.m.  Drop by.  Bring a healthy snack.  And a friend.  Stay as long as you wish. If you like what you hear, you'll have plenty of time during the week to join us at breakfast, get copies of Tom's books, attend other meetings, and/or schedule some personal time with Tom.


2. Highland City Club in Boulder.  885 Arapahoe. 12:00-2:00. April 15.


Web address:

Please be aware that space is limited and that you must be on the guest list to attend.  Contact Chris Dwyer in advance  via email or phone to be put on the guest list., 303.494.1521.


3. Public Meeting at Louisville Library.  April 16.  10:30 to 12:30 p.m.

Louisville Library Main Floor Meeting Room, 951 Spruce St, Louisville, CO


Additional Special Meetings You May Want to Schedule

We are free on Thursday and Friday evenings, as well as Monday, for this group to launch some informal events.  Anybody have suggestions?  Potluck dinner?  Small group discussions?  Take some hikes.  Watch some monetary movies together?
