Truckee Green Networktgnw.org
A networking nonprofit connecting partners that are fostering sustainability and environmental stewardship.
Welcoming Sagehen Creek to the network
I want to welcome the Sagehen Creek Field Station as the newest partner. A field station is an experimental natural environment for biological research, hydrological studies, ecology, climate change studies, and environmental education. It's amazing to have something of such historical and environmental importance right in our back yard!
Sagehen Creek was originally developed by the Berkeley University School of Forestry and Conservation in 1951 and is now overseen by several entities. The Leopold family was instrumental in creating the Sagehen Creek Field Station, as they were in many other endeavors through over 3 generations of environmental stewardship.
On one of my visits to Sagehen Creek we watched a film, Green Fire, about the legendary Aldo Leopold, his life and his legacy. It's bittersweet, gives you hope and makes you cry. After the film a few of us had a debate about the "Land Ethic" as it relates to environmental sustainability. Is the land ethic inspiring what we do in regards to the environment, or are philosophies around sustainability what we look to for guidance? There were two camps, one was that environmental sustainability was the overarching concept while the land ethic was only a subset of environmental sustainability and the other was that the land ethic is the main inspiration from which environmental sustainability is created. I felt that the land ethic is the overarching concept that we base our decisions on regarding environmental sustainability. The Land Ethic gives us the guidance to determine what is sustainable. Can we have environmental sustainability without a land ethic? What do you think?
Here is a link to the site for the movie. Let us know if you want a screening in Truckee. http://www.greenfiremovie.com/
You may have heard of Aldo Leopold and the Sand County Almanac, which contains this short essay "The Land Ethic" and has inspired many environmentalists and activists, including myself.

Sierra Sun News Paper
How Green Is It? Examining Light Bulbs
As a bi-product of the industrial revolution, the US is the world's largest producer of Carbon Dioxide as a whole and per capita. Since we are the pioneers who created most of the elements that produce carbon emissions it's our responsibility to lead the campaign to reduce carbon emissions.
Many of us have the sincere desire to reduce our carbon footprint, but what does that really mean? Carbon footprint is a measure of environmental impact directly related to the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the combustion of non-renewable resources. No, it isn't a direct correlation to your shoe size. Essentially it is a measurement of the energy used to produce, use and dispose of a product, commonly known as the product life cycle. Well, if you have a large foot there's a good possibility that your product consumption is relative to its size. There are other effects that also impact the environment, heavy metals, toxic chemicals, erosion, and land use. It's crucial to consider the complete picture when looking at reducing your impacts on the environment.
If a product has little or no carbon emissions it is frequently referred to as green. There is an overwhelming amount of information about green products and services scattered about various media and the number of companies claiming to be "green" is growing exponentially. Where do you start and how do you decide what's right for you? Take it one step at a time and explore how green it really is. There are cost effective, and in many cases cost saving, ways to reduce your negative impact on the environment.
Let's start with something that is utilized by every person in this region everyday, lighting. There is a big push to switch from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). This helps to reduce carbon emissions, because most of our electricity currently comes from coal burning power plants, the most environmentally damaging, energy producing, non-renewable resource. Using CFLs will also provide you with savings for your pocket book. This seems like a win win situation, but there are a few things that we need to be aware of. State of California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) identifies fluorescent bulbs as hazardous waste. It wasn't until recently, February 9th, 2007 to be exact, that it became illegal for anyone to dispose of them in the trash. They have been considered toxic waste for years, but households and businesses were exempt from complying with regulations that keep these and other hazardous waste out of the trash. These bulbs are toxic because they contain mercury, a highly toxic heavy metal, and if they break mercury vapor is released. Remember the Mad Hatter? Well, he didn't first appear in Alice in Wonderland. Mercury was used in the felting process for making hats that early in the 18th century were very popular in Europe and North America. It is a cumulative poison that causes kidney and brain damage. Symptoms include trembling, loosening of teeth, loss of co-ordination, slurred speech, irritability, loss of memory, depression, anxiety, and other personality changes, all components of mad hatter syndrome.
California refers to hazardous waste matter as "Universal Waste" or "U-Waste" and defines them as such, electronics, batteries, mercury thermostats, fluorescent lights, mercury thermometers, and other products containing heavy metals. There is no charge to drop-off batteries, florescent tubes and bulbs and partially filled aerosol cans at the recycling center at Eastern Regional Landfill (ERL). Fees apply to all other U-waste items, which need to be taken to ERL for proper disposal. The ERL is off 89 South of Truckee on Cabin Creek Rd. ½ way between Truckee and Squaw. The hours of operation are Monday – Saturday 8:00am – 4:00pm.
There is a push to create more efficient and less toxic light bulbs. Incandescent bulbs are becoming more efficient, fluorescents are being created with less mercury and, well, then there's LEDs. These lights are the most energy efficient and the least toxic, but what about the blue hue that makes you look like you drank too much the night before? There is white light technology, but unfortunately it's not economical for consumer lighting. The 5th Annual Advanced LED and Solid State Lighting Suppliers Conference, BLUE 2007, takes place this month in Hsinchu, Taiwan to help hasten the transition to LEDs. Hopefully they will figure out a way to inexpensively cancel out the blue.
What bulbs to use and where to use them? CFLs are the most energy efficient and should be used where it's appropriate. I will be addressing this and more next month, including proper handling of fluorescent bulbs.

How Green Is It? Examining Light Bulbs Cont…
Thomas Edison was not the inventor of electric light. Like technology today the inventors aren't usually the ones to bring a product to market successfully. Experiments with electric arc lamps date back to 1801. Sir Joseph Swann invented and patented the evacuated carbon filament incandescent lamp in 1878, around the same time Edison was experimenting. Edison was able to make it more efficient and partner with Swann to create a complete lighting system.
The first incandescent bulbs made by Edison converted around 1% of the electrical energy they used to light. When products are first brought to market they aren't necessarily preeminent. As technology improved, a tungsten filament replaced the carbon making them 10% more efficient. Ingenuity, such as putting halogen element gas into the bulb, allowed filaments to last longer. Halogen incandescent bulbs are about 15% more efficient and last almost 3 times longer than a traditional tungsten bulb. Of the remaining 80% - 90% of electrical energy transferred into a modern incandescent most is changed into invisible infra-red radiation or heat.
Peter Cooper Hewitt, a nearly forgotten inventor, created an arc lamp that used mercury. Low-pressure arc lamps put out large amounts of dangerous ultra-violet light, so the insides were coated with a fluorescent chemical, blocking out the harmful UV rays and creating fluorescent light. Essentially CFLs are mini tanning lights with a protective coating.
The most efficient fluorescent lights are the industrial tubes, which use up to 40% of electrical energy as light, but they contain more mercury than CFLs, which convert 20% - 30% of their electrical energy to light, are up to 80% more efficient than incandescents and last 10 times longer. LEDs are even more efficient than fluorescents, use less electricity and last much longer. Even though they are more expensive to purchase, in the end LEDs are much less expensive for you and the environment. Though they are the most efficient and least toxic, currently LEDs are only good for lighting up small areas, or directional lighting. Don't let the price scare you, they really are cheaper, can last up to 60 times longer than incandescents and use up to 3000% less energy saving you money in the long run. Check out these websites… ccrane.com and theledlight.com
What does all this mean? If you are using renewable energy, energy that isn't releasing carbon or heavy metals into our atmosphere, stick with halogen or LED bulbs as not to add to the mercury already being spewed by coal burning power plants. If you get your energy from Sierra Pacific Power, like Truckee, most of your electricity comes from burning coal. Since coal plants emit much more mercury into the air than you ever could by changing all the bulbs in your house to fluorescents, for now it's best to upgrade where you can.
And what about all those halogen lights you've installed? Halogen bulbs are the most efficient incandescent bulbs, but they are still less efficient than fluorescents or LEDs. The issue with halogens is they inevitably cause a room to heat up. My suggestion is use LED's when you want spot lighting, task lights, night-lights and reading lights. A quartz-halogen is brilliant for achieving natural light in large areas, common areas, living rooms and dens. CFLs are great for area lighting, but are labeled as toxic waste and are not directional, so use CFLs in heavy use areas that need dispersed light, bathrooms, kitchens and work areas are good examples. Fluorescents don't work well in cold temperatures, so using them outdoors in the Tahoe area is not advised.
Start by changing the most frequently used lights to LEDs and CFLs and as the other bulbs burn out replace them with the most appropriate lighting. Install dimmer switches for your halogen lights. Reduce your energy consumption and keep current with the least toxic solutions. The good news is less toxic more efficient bulbs are being produced and we are starting to rely more on renewable energy.
Some important information on CFLs;
If a CFL breaks take these simple precautions. Open nearby windows to disperse any vapor that may escape. Use a broom to sweep up the fragments. Do not use a vacuum and avoid using your hands. Wipe the area with a damp disposable paper towel to pick up small glass fragments. Place all fragments in a sealed plastic bag and bring it to the ERL (Eastern Regional Landfill). See my April 13th column for toxic waste disposal information.
If the fluorescent coating is damaged harmful UV rays will be emitted. If this happens immediately discontinue use and dispose of properly.
For a CFL to work in a dimmer, or to work in a 3-way light it must be specially designed to do so. Read the package before you buy a CFL. Three-way CFLs can be quite tall, so make sure they will fit.
Don't purchase off brands of any light bulb. These have proven to be less efficient and don't last as long as brand names.
Ask your self these questions; Where does my energy come from? For specific products what are the overall effects on the environment? Think about energy efficiency, consider the overall toxicity of what you're using, how it's created, used and disposed of, reused or recycled.
The "Alliance to Save Energy" estimates that if inefficient lighting was phased out, the US could save about $18 billion annually on electricity bills. According to them this can avoid power plant emissions of more than 158 million tons of carbon dioxide and 5,700 pounds of airborne mercury.
In my next column I will have tips on how you can reduce your energy usage and keep more money in your pocket book.

How Green Is It? A Learning Experience
I was at the drug store the other day looking for non-acetone nail polish remover all proud of myself for thinking green, but when I got it home I rubbed for over 20 minutes only to end up with blotchy red spots on my toenails. I got back in my car, drove back to the drugstore and purchased the more toxic nail polish remover. I burned excess fossil fuel, wasted a plastic container filled with useless chemicals and in the end purchased a toxic product. Go ahead, turn up your nose at me and say, how environmentally friendly is nail polish anyway? Well, not very, but red toenails in the summer are just one of those things that a girl's just gotta have. And guys I know some of you have had a pedicure and enjoyed it!
So, what's the balance? That's up to you. Becoming greener is a learning process. As I go through the day I try to think about things that will support my quest to make less of a negative impact on the environment. Big thanks to my mother who always reminded me to "TURN OFF THE LIGHTS" this is so deeply ingrained in me that I turn off lights at friends houses and if I see that one of my part-time neighbors has left their porch lights on I have to restrain myself from unscrewing their light bulbs.
I think it's been over 5 years since I purchased a roll of paper towels. My napkins are cloth and I reuse them until I can't find an unsoiled spot to wipe my face. I use power strips for all my electronics, cut down on driving by planning my trips and ride my bike when time and energy allows, but getting back up Northwoods is always a challenge. I bring my travel mug to the coffee shop; compost in the summer and recycling is a no brainer. Unlike popular belief paper cups and plates are not recyclable. They are coated, so liquids don't make them fall apart.
I use recycled paper products in my bathroom, the roughness gives you character, and when I think that my mother used the Sears catalogue in the outhouse on the farm, OUCH! But She does have a lot of character. I also use flushable biodegradable wipes, to cut down on TP, and the air hanky in the shower is always a hit.
If you cook a lot, or just heat stuff up, there are simple things you can do to be more
efficient. Microwaves use up to 2/3 less energy to cook with than your electric oven or stove. Always cover pots and pans when cooking and turn down the heat. Refrigerators and freezers are more efficient when full, so if you don't keep a stocked kitchen put large containers of water in both and keep them turned up as high as recommended to keep food fresh, but don't drink the frozen water from your fridge. Plastic water bottles release dioxins when frozen.
I will take a minute to dispel any myths about microwave ovens and persuade you to use them more often. Any danger associated with microwave ovens is less than when cooking with other methods. When cooking with microwaves you're not interacting with flames or extremely hot surfaces. The only injuries you can obtain are from touching hot food or eating something that has been over heated causing one of those nasty blisters on the roof of your mouth, which subsequently peals at the least opportune moment causing you to overtly lick the roof of your mouth and inadvertently use your finger to pull off the dead skin.
Now you may ask… What about the radiation? There are many forms of microwaves, or electromagnetic radiation. They range from the radio frequency waves used in broadcasting to the more energetic forms used in x-rays. The electromagnetic radiation used in microwaves is the less energetic radio frequency waves and should never be confused with x-rays, or the radioactivity associated with a nuclear reaction, which may be why they call them microwaves? And if you're worried about those radio waves getting out of the oven, they wont because they can't pass through metal. Even if they did the worst that would happen is vibration in your water molecules, so being exposed for extremely long periods of time may cause your insides to boil, but don't quote me on that!
The FDA has made sure that in the design of microwave ovens every precaution has been taken to insure your safety. No, your food does not become radioactive, radioactive material comes from a completely different reaction, radioactive decay, and is best explained by wikipedia.org. Just type in radioactive and they use the analogy of an avalanche, making it perfect for all you snow gods and goddesses out there.
Now back to all the good things about microwaves. When cooking with microwaves you use less water, things cook faster, use less energy, and you don't have to heat an area bigger than your food. The microwaves cause the water molecules in food to vibrate, which produces heat in your food and cooks it. Foods like fresh vegetables, that have high water content, cook faster and because they cook faster they don't loose much of their nutritional value. In fact food cooked in microwaves can retain more vitamins and minerals than food cooked in an oven or on a stove because more nutrients escape the longer you cook food.
If your microwave has a turntable put your food on the outside edge, so more microwaves can interact with your food and cook it faster. Never cook in plastic. When heated, plastic can release dioxins into your food.
Here's some clarity on treated water; to pump water out of the ground, treat it, deliver it to you and treat it again takes energy. By reducing water consumption you will help reduce the energy used to manage it. Here's a few small things you can do…
Only run your dishwasher or washing machine when it's full.
Wash your larger dishes by hand.
Scrape your dishes with a brush and use cold water to rinse them when putting them in the dishwasher.
Cook in the microwave.
Plant low water plants, or native plants in your garden and if you must have plants that need water please use a drip irrigation system.
Don't install a sprinkler system.
Don't use water to wash pine needles off your deck. Sweeping can be therapeutic and give you a little workout to boot.
Start composting instead of using your disposal.
Use a gray water system.
And don't forget, if it's yellow let it mellow, but if it's brown then flush it down.
When recycling please use blue bags, even though they sort through our garbage at TTSD more than 80% of items that are recyclable are recycled when we use blue bags as compared to a meager 10% when we toss our garbage into one bag.
