The Alliance for Resilient Community currently hosts a weekly round table that is open to the community and will feature keynote speakers, public discussions and solutions.

The discussions will be held from 7-8 p.m. every Wednesday at the Nevada County Tech building. All are welcome to come.

The Alliance for Resilient Community also recently opened an office in the Nevada County Tech building and are bringing to light the issues that effect us locally, regionally and globally. They have an advisory board of experts that can consult on various subjects and issues and collaborate to produce these larger monthly broadcasts.

In addition, the group created an online directory that identifies individuals and businesses in the 10 counties of the Sacramento River Watershed that are committed to a healthy environment and community. See for more information.

The group will also be partnering with local non-profits and organizations to help them build bridges with others and produce media for an online archive. Interested participants can be there in person or watch the live stream broadcast on Golden Road TV/Radio Youtube or Facebook channel, KVMR Facebook or on Nevada County Cable TV.

"Drawdown" - Paul Hawkins - A Must Read

Paul Hawkins and his team have put forth a comprehensive perspective on how to "Drawdown" carbon emissions from the current state of affairs. What I love about "Drawdown" is that it focuses on solutions. It categorizes and ranks the sectors that will help the most and explores the existing solutions and opens the conversation for ongoing improvement.

As Stated on the website, which is an amazing resource in itself, the Mission of Project Drawdown "is facilitating a broad coalition of researchers, scientists, graduate students, PhDs, post-docs, policy makers, business leaders and activists to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions in order to describe their beneficial financial, social and environmental impact over the next thirty years."

The vision of the book and the website is to "bridge the divide between agency and urgency" and "to enact meaningful solutions."  To learn more please visit

Multiple independent studies have documented that exposure to chlorpyrifos impairs children's IQs

"The American Academy of Pediatrics urged Pruitt to reconsider his action and proceed with the ban. But Pruitt didn’t take the advice of 60,000 doctors serving babies and children.

Chlorpyrifos poses an extra risk to farmworkers and their families, and people living near agricultural fields. 

Data from California, the only state that tracks pesticide use in detail, shows that in 2010 alone more than 7,700 pounds of chlorpyrifos were sprayed within a quarter-mile of schools in the state. Just over a month after Pruitt’s reversal of the proposed ban, more than 50 California farmworkers were exposed to chlorpyrifos that drifted from a nearby field, with at least" 12 reporting nausea, vomiting and fainting.

California’s proposed Glyphosate limit vs. the amount allowed by EPA

California's proposed No Significant Risk Level is 1.1 milligrams of glyphosate daily for an adult weighing 70 kilograms, or 154 pounds. The EPA's safe level, or Reference Dose, is 2 milligrams per kilogram of body weight, which for that same adult would be 140 milligrams a day – 127 times the level proposed by California. More
