    I thought Lousie did a great job of facilitating the group and introducing us to the upcoming Carbon Washington Initiative.

    Too bad I did not make it because of norovirus, let me know if implementations of those ideas require expertise in building large computer system. I am all for that! And please check out my idea http://www.kgionline.com/eco-ra...­

      I want a plan B in case technology does not come to our rescue. Running on Empty Caucus of Democrats in the United States 1. There are no sustainable energy sources that will rescue us at our current population levels and so we must ETHICALLY reduce our population.

      2. We must change our ethical standard and believe that the most ethical behavior is to adopt a child and a bit less ethical is to only have one child or twins. 3. Population reduction must be a part of any plan to rationally deal with peak oil (the end of cheap oil, natural gas, and coal), global climate change, biological/species decline, and natural resource depletion. 4. Global climate change will only be mitigated with extremely stringent emissions policies that reduce consumption rates and this must be done before fossil fuels are depleted.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
