1>><E0E>>< Great story on the Marin missile site (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nukes in Our Backyard,â&#x20AC;? Oct 7). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been meaning for years to get to the first Saturday show. Soon. One thing you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include is the enormous cost involved in the useless fortifications all over this area. Your emphasis on the presence of nucleartipped missiles was the right one.

AD;4>5B8G I enjoyed the article describing Supervisor Steve Kinseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for a greener Marin and fully support its content (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond the Trails,â&#x20AC;? Green Zone, Oct. 7). I have some further suggestions: 1. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change some building codes and zoning regulation and build homes with cinderblocks reinforced with steel and topped with tile roofs. The advantages are fire resistance; saves trees; no termites; no toxic sprays; less painting; less oil-based polluting tar and gravel roofs or fire-prone asphalt and wood-shake roofs.

2. Build single family homes that can, when the children move out, be easily converted into duplexes. 3. Build recast concrete apartment homes that are steel reinforced, earthquake resistant, architecturally pleasing and sound proof. 4. Support tree planting along highways and country roads. 5. Raise the gas tax by 25 cents a gallon, and expand train and bus service and build state-of-theart bike paths. 6. Support organic, local businesses whenever you can and avoid junk food, sugary soft drinks and unhealthy lifestyles.

2>AA4B?>=34=242;40A8=67>DB4 Dear Rohnert Park City Council: I do not support the development of the Rohnert Park Wal-Mart into a grocery store. Please vote no on this proposal.

A Wal-Mart grocery store will compete directly with Safeway and Raleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stores, and will eventually put them out of business. When that happens, local citizens will have fewer opportunities for good, union jobs. That will hurt Rohnert Park. The economic interests of working-class people are literally under siege. We are becoming poorer, many of us reduced to poverty. We are losing our homes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going bankrupt, budget cuts are destroying our ability to properly educate ourselves. We are in bad shape. The further expansion of Wal-Mart into this community will exacerbate this reality by replacing precious good jobs with bad ones. The Rohnert Park City Council must use its authority to defend the economic welfare of citizens by defending decent jobs.

The graveyard storage for the things is in Pueblo, Colo., in those vast military warehouses. This site is a living history center and the vets who created it are proud of that. From a Reader, re the Yoga Issue, Oct. 7: In your recent article on Bikram yoga, you failed to mention Red Dragon Yoga in Mill Valley in your list of studios that offer Bikram classes. Red Dragon has wonderful teachers and is a great place to practice Bikram. They should have been mentioned under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marinâ&#x20AC;? studios where you only listed San Rafael Bikram Yoga.

A 30-year veteran of the climate battles considers the possibility of a clean-tech future By Jessica Lussenhop

3

r. Stephen Schneider is a climatologist, a senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University and a 1992 MacArthur Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x153;genius grantâ&#x20AC;? recipient. He has been in the trenches of the climate change battle since the 1970s and has advised presidents from Nixon to Obama on how to manage the threat posed by global warming. The insanely busy Schneider (the following interview was cobbled together from four separate phone calls during which he was at the airport, grabbing a bite to eat, waiting in a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

office and rushing to class) is also a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. His new book, Science as a Contact Sport: Inside the Battle to Save Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Climate, will be published next month by the National Geographic Society. Writer Jessica Lussenhop caught up with him to discuss the 350 conceptâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which refers to reducing our current carbon dioxide load to the sustainable figure of 350 parts per millionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and more. The Bohemian: How long have you been on board with the 350-parts-per-million figure?

Stephen Schneider: Since back in the 1970s. We were well below 350, and I was trying to get

us off the pathway of the mega-increases, and we failed. The issue will [now] be, how much are we going to overshoot the safe target? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt we already have, and we will go far before we go back. As we look to reduce that number, what new technologies are you excited about?

We have to work across a whole spectrum and see who wins. I call it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;learning-bydoing feeding frenzy.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see how much carbon we can take out of smokestacks and coal plants so that we have a smooth transition toward renewables. And can we put it underground permanently and safely? Not clear. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work on that. How about putting it in high concentrations into % .

algae, and the algae can be used for biofuels? Great idea. How about bio-char? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take agricultural waste or forest plantation waste, cook them at 300 degrees for an hour and get the natural gas off of the top, and then get charâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is sort of charcoal at the bottomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which you can add to the soil and sequester carbon. There are even crazy ideas to build artificial trees, a chemical process where you run water by certain kinds of chemicals. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little company in Silicon Valley called Calera, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try and actually see if they can make real cement by a different chemical process that, instead of giving CO2 up when it hardens, it takes it up. So now, will it work? Will any of these things work? We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know yet, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to give all these clever ideas a chance. Problem is, can you scale it up from the thousands of tons in current demonstrated experiments to the hundreds of billions of tons it has to be to offset a significant fraction of potential CO2 emissions eventually? So the big problem is the s-word: scalability. What are some ideas that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so excited about?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m un-excited about throwing dust in the stratosphere. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x153;radiative forcing offset.â&#x20AC;? Instead of controlling the CO2, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re controlling the number of watts per square meter beating on the earth. The reason itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very unexciting to me is there is a degree of inadvertent climate modification. The second problem is, who do you trust? We now know that the extra CO2 we have in the airâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a significant amount of it, 20, 30 percentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is going to last a thousand years in the air. That means we have to have a group of climate controllers for centuries. Do you think that we can trust this planet to have world peace for that long? I mean, to have cooperation, where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be a lapse? And the final reason is, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop ocean acidification. The only way I could conceive of why they would want to do radiative forcing management would be if the world proves to be so morally bankrupt and does absolutely nothing in the next 25 years, and megacatastrophic outcomes start to occur. You know, super-hurricanes and all that stuff. People say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh my God, what have we done?â&#x20AC;? It takes another 30 years to slow down the supertanker, and then we used this kind of stuff for a few decades while we invent carbon-removal geo-engineering. I might reluctantly say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, if you have a heroin addict and you initially get them on methadone on the way to the hospital, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably better than dumping them.â&#x20AC;? What about solutions on a policy level?

One is performance standards. California has the lowest energy use and the lowest carbon dioxide footprint per capita. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big footprint, but per capita itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lowest in the United States. Europe and Japan are around California. So how could that happen? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a culture of public protection. California has had, for the last 40 years, rules, and these rules are very strict building codes on double-pane windows and insulation and air conditioners and refrigerators and lots of other things. The states have to set up an energy commission, and the energy commissions set the rules. The U.S. must do this, the rest of the world

must do this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we call the lowhanging fruit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cheapest way. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tax on carbon. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the market solution. It could be a direct priceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning you just have a tax, $50 per ton of carbon dioxide emittedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or a shadow price, which is a cap. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of cap and trade. What cap and trade means is that you cap the emissions, x number of million tons for the whole economy. Now that means every power plant and every other person has some limit. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to cap an individual driving a car, so what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do is cap the gasoline purchasers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be mandatoryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;either cap or price. I prefer price, I could live with a cap. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll manage. The last part of itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for me, I will pay more money. So will you. Everybody will pay more money. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already paying money in the form of burned-down forests and children with asthma. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;external cost.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to make the price of energy include all the costs. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one side of the problem. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a world used to the current price, and for those people with low incomes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very difficult. For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to affect the quality of the Pinot Noir I drink. A poor person, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to affect the quality of the protein their family eats. So not only do you have to protect the commons by having a fee for dumping your waste in the atmospheric sewer, but you also have to deal with the people who would be differentially hurt. I do not believe you hold the sustainability agenda of the planet hostage for poverty. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to cure poverty, but not by artificial low prices and energy. So what you would have to do is two things: protect the commons through increasing the price of energy, and then deal with poverty through, say, vouchers for people to buy a very highly efficient new hybrid car, free or low-cost improvement to the energy efficiency of their homes or a cash return. We have to deal with equity, and we have to deal with environmental effectiveness, and this means two acts of good governance in a world that has trouble getting one act of good governance. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not pretending what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying is easy. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no defensible reason we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do everything I just said. The only thing is political will and peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awareness.

Do you see that kind of political will in the Obama administration?

Dramatically. Relative to the past, dramatically. Remember, in the previous administration we were going in the wrong direction. In this administration, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got is the political will to get things done. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put their money where their mouth is. They got with the stimulus bill $100 billionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for green-tech development. They still have congress in bed with all the special interests in their districts. Every coal mine, every power plant, all the farmers who want to use fertilizer at the lowest priceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; these people only think about their own bottom line and their own backyard, never concerned about the country and less about the planet. So the difficulty is, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to fight with the pork-barrel lions in congress, including Democrats, and it takes major leadership. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to make compromises, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to turn the ship around. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn a tanker around quickly. THE BOHEMIAN

?a^cTbcX]VX]cWT 0VT^U>QTbXch A point and click revolution wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take us far enough

By Hannah Strom-Martin

;

ast night, I watched Milk, that lovely Gus Van Sant biopic featuring gayrights activists who take their fight â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of the closet and into the street.â&#x20AC;? Today, I participated in our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raging healthcare debate by lighting a â&#x20AC;&#x153;virtual candleâ&#x20AC;? at MoveOn.org. I then attempted to save farm animals from abuse by affixing my name to an internet petition. And I signed a second virtual petition to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tell the President: Save Our Arctic Habitat!â&#x20AC;? At some point during all this, I realized there was a reason those â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s activists were so svelte. Harvey Milkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew was really out there, marching in the street, working those calves, screaming their dissent. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political activism is increasingly taking the form of point-and-click. Passing initiatives sure doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn as many calories as it used to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly a secret that the same people who raised hell in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s are often the only people raising hell today. Recent Huffington Post and Washington Post articles lament the lack of young people involved in the healthcare debate, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right: you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any hot Emile Hirsch lookalikes out there with a bullhorn. At a time when the hordes of this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uninsured college grads ought to be rioting en masse, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to find them mucking about on Facebook. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather save the world comfortably and in a hassle-free manner in between bouts of Jewel Quest and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Which Spiderman Character Are You?â&#x20AC;? memes. Facing the worst economic climate since the Dust Bowl, often working harder for far less than their parents made, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crop of working stiffs would rather crawl home to Hulu after work than haul ass to the nearest protest. And my own efforts to get physically involved in the defining political battle of our time have been considerably hampered by the fact that no one is staging any significant counterrevolution to the Red Scare Teabag morons who continue to grab headlines across the

country. When Harvey Milk ran for supervisor, his campaign was a miracle of community organizingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and leadership. When was the last time anyone saw a political official out on the front lines, bullhorn in hand? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Progressive,â&#x20AC;? is about to become every bit as tainted a moniker as â&#x20AC;&#x153;liberalâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;feminist,â&#x20AC;? but this time it will be our own fault. Progressive is a dynamic word, implying motion, vitalityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;progress! Whoever is in charge of the current â&#x20AC;&#x153;movementâ&#x20AC;? (hey, who the hell is in charge?) seems rather adverse to breaking a sweat. Outpaced by Jehovahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Witnesses, not one canvasser has shown up on my doorstep to ask me to sign something. Not one of them has jumped up on a box outside of Safeway and harangued me into community service. And not one has had the balls to stand up in the middle of a Town Hall tirade and scream, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, dickhead! Medicare is a government-run program!â&#x20AC;? Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no good trying to guilt-trip anyone. Maybe, rather than incited, the revolution ought to be repackaged as our last best hope of shedding patriotic pounds. If we could just find a leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a political Richard Simmons, if you willâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to get us off of our asses and into the streets. If we could just participate in those group exercises our country so desperately needs. Teabaggers may be unsightly, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking a hell of a lot better than Barney Frank who, verbal calisthenics aside, is rapidly becoming the all-too fleshy face of a political movement undermined by Facebook-age passivism.

At a time when the hordes of this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uninsured college grads ought to be rioting en masse, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to find them mucking about on Facebook.

Can one utility block Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate-protection efforts?

By Juliane Poirier

8

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what people will do for money. Woody Guthrie wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roll On Columbiaâ&#x20AC;? for the Bonneville Power Administration in 1941. That was back when lyrics like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your power is turning our darkness to dawnâ&#x20AC;? might persuade a naĂŻve public to celebrate hydroelectric dams (the way cement contractors were undoubtedly celebrating them). It was a clever marketing strategyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for that era. In this era of climate crisis, dumbing the public down takes a bit more than folk propaganda sung to the tune of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goodnight Ireneâ&#x20AC;?; now it takes a well-funded confusion and fear campaign, similar to what PG&E has launched in Marin and aims to take all the way to the ballot in June. The utility wants to stop informed communities such as Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and other climate-protecting jurisdictions, including those in the San Joaquin Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; from buying their own electricity through a Community Choice Aggregation plan. Why? The new citizencontrolled power purchasing will not only replace dirty electricity with cleaner power, give Marin the authority to negotiate its own energy contracts and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the North Bay, but it will also divert millions of dollars from PG&E. No big surprise that the utility wants to keep jurisdictions out of the powerpurchasing business. Marin appears undaunted. So far, all cities in the county except Corte Madera, Novato and Larkspur have joined up to create a citizen-driven initiative to give people options. Ratepayers will be free to stay with the current PG&E product (85 percent nonrenewable energy from coal, nuclear, natural gas and large hydroelectric projects). Or participants may select from two renewable products to be offered by a new program, Marin Clean Energy: a Light Green product, between 25 and 50 percent renewable and increasing to 100 percent within seven years; and a Dark Green product already 100 percent renewable. The Light Green option will result in no additional charges to a ratepayer; the Dark Green option will cost a few dollars more for those who want to pay extra to help protect the climate. Marin

Clean Energy will cut up to 500,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. And it will cut PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program,â&#x20AC;? says Marin Energy Authority interim director Dawn Weisz, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will take about $94 million per year away from PG&E. We will be taking that money to buy renewable energy, and the money left over will be used to fund local renewable and energy-efficiency projects.â&#x20AC;? To block the potential for other Community Choice Aggregation projects, PG&E is funding a ballot initiative for next June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The initiative would require a two-thirds vote for any community that wants to launch a similar program,â&#x20AC;? Weisz explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;PG&E has put $3 million into the initiative so far, and there are no other funders.â&#x20AC;? Government organizations, on the other hand, are not permitted to spend public dollars to support or promote ballot issues. According to Weisz, there has been a lot of lobbying by PG&E, represented by former assemblyman Joe Nation and former Marin County supervisor Gary Giacomini. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was some confusion, possibly from PG&Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reps,â&#x20AC;? Weisz says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which led a few jurisdictions to believe there would be a burden on their general fund, which is not the case with this program. It is possible that Novato may reconsider their position. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t join before this ballot initiative passes, we would not be able to expand our territory without a two-thirds vote.â&#x20AC;? Communities and climate will suffer if the ballot passes, but Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three private utility companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;PG&E, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas and Electricâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will not be impacted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The PG&E ballot initiative also attempts to have an impact on how the public energy providers spend revenue,â&#x20AC;? Weisz says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public utilities like SMUD will likely be impacted.â&#x20AC;? While PG&E dollars continue to buy fear and fuel a climate-violating ballot initiative, Marin Clean Energy is proceeding to circulate the final contract for purchase of renewables. Interestingly, this level of transparency is never practiced by private utility companies. Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 90-day period for public review and comments is the kind of transparency practiced by communities serious about climate-protection goals.

PG&E wants to stop informed communities such as Marin from buying their own electricity through a Community Choice Aggregation plan.

C

ed King sat sipping a cold Corona on the beach in Todos Santos, Mexico, waiting for the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied green flash at sunset. He was on vacation with his wife, Suzanne, a high school Spanish teacher, taking time between jobs to ponder what his next move in the game of life might be. It was February of this year, and King, a freelance consultant for the organic food industry, had watched his client base dwindle with the economic downturn. He felt he had two choices: dust off his rĂŠsumĂŠ and struggle back into a suit to job-hunt or strike out on a venture of his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was at that point in life where it was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;now or never,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? King remembered recently, seated on the deck of his Forestville home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The timing in

our lives seemed right. If I failed on my own, it would be back to the suit and tie.â&#x20AC;? King had quietly pondered a change for a while; his 25 years of experience in specialty organic food companies would be a good start. He also wanted a business he could run from his homeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or from anywhere, for that matterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; with wifi and a cell phone. Sitting on the beach, he experienced a f lash of another sort: the right idea for a business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do something I felt good about, something different, find a new product,â&#x20AC;? he says. Having attended dozens of food shows and having been exposed to hundreds of products, King knows what is out there and what not to try. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There always seems to be a star product of the year, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chocolate or coffee or a new flavored hot sauce with a catchy name. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a process of elimination,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought of

salad dressings as a stale category. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not updated for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumers. I realized I could make something unique.â&#x20AC;? King envisioned a product that would be a balance between homemade salad dressing, which can be time-consuming for busy cooks, and store-bought, bottled dressing, quick but not as satisfying. He also wanted it to be adaptable, able to complement whatever meal was being served. Open any fridge, and most hold a doorful of halfused condiment bottles. Hoping to avoid that unsavory scenario, King came up with the idea of a salad dressing kit that would hold two organic spice packets, a glass mixing jar for adding oil and vinegar, and a recipe sheet of dressing alternatives and marinades developed by his wife. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dress It Upâ&#x20AC;? Naturally Organic Tuscan Dressing and Marinade Kit was born. At least in theory. Next came the hard part, making his dream a reality. Once back at home, King &+ THE BOHEMIAN

started doing research at local food stores to see what was on the shelves and how it was priced. Other than Good Seasons, the Kraft salad dressing kit that has been around since 1958, King found little to compete with the product he had in mind, and certainly none both organic and kosher. He next considered whether the product could be profitable, so he could reinvest the income for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I penciled in costs and found it was a potentially viable product,â&#x20AC;? King says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is slightly more expensive than conventional dressings, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m using all-organic ingredients: pure cane sugar, not processed sugar or fructose syrup, and herbs and spices from organic, sustainable farming co-ops throughout the world.â&#x20AC;? Any organic product must be certified by Quality Assurance International, an organic authority which monitors production from beginning to end to make sure the item meets its guidelines. King wanted the dressing to be kosher, and therefore needed the approval of the Rabbinical Council of America, part of the Orthodox Union. He feels that by making the item kosher, he can reach a wider market, and that public perception of kosher items is that they are purer and healthier. Both certifications add to the cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did very creative financing,â&#x20AC;? King chuckles. Since his past ventures had been successful, he was able to put seed money toward the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is part of the learning experience. I am aware that the budget and timelines expand on any project. I have my eyes open to the sacrifices it takes to get the ball rolling, like selling my midlife-crisis sports car, but I feel that passionate about it.â&#x20AC;? King has found budgeting a low point of the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to make wild guesses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet an established business, and there is no track record for potential backers to see.â&#x20AC;? King has negotiated to make future promises to suppliers to get things going now. For example, he has bought twice the number of boxes needed for the first production run in order to get a lower price. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be billed for the boxes for six months, so has time to sell the first products to pay for the second run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have faith and optimism, otherwise I might be shingling my roof with the excess boxes,â&#x20AC;? he jokes. Budget in place, King is in production and says he feels very fortunate to have a great resource pool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My former co-workers and other individuals have given me a lot of outside help. They are key in making me feel good about what I am attempting.â&#x20AC;? Recognizing his business strengths and weaknesses, he has contracted much of the work out rather than attempting to develop each component of the project himself. After coming up with the basic spice blend, King turned the research and development over to an independent contractor for the final tasty product. This freed him up to attend to packaging. And to look south. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern California is the most costeffective place for packaging, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still looking for local companies with the

capabilities to portion out the seasonings into envelopes and seal them,â&#x20AC;? King says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Special equipment is needed, plus the plant has to be certified kosher and organic. Food manufacturers in the Bay Area are a declining breed, but Southern California has a strong food-manufacturing and packing base.â&#x20AC;? King has also audited the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities to make sure they have both the appropriate safety standards and exacting quality-assurance standards, and can meet the demand for quantities needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to feel comfortable that they are using good standard manufacturing practices without me being there every second,â&#x20AC;? he says. King tossed around different names for the dressing, finally settling on Dress It Up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives the connotation of an upscale, well-made dressing. I had to research if the domain name was taken or if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been copyrighted, learning as I went. Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been my friend,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. A local graphic artist developed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;shelf attractiveâ&#x20AC;? packaging design while King wrote the copy. Past colleagues helped with the aesthetics of the packaging, giving it a clean look while including all the crucial information. With the dressing in production and a mocked-up kit, King is ready for the most important step: sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to it,â&#x20AC;? he enthuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have very good mentors who are helping me with what and what not to say during my presentation.â&#x20AC;? King has acquired his first clients through six degrees of separation, falling back on his experience in the food business and using his established networks of professional relationships to help him make contacts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting an initial meeting was fairly easy, but then I had to sell them on why they need my product and the benefit of having it on their already crowded shelves. I let them taste the product and pitched my positives. You only get about 20 minutes. When I get my â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; I pack up and get out before they can change their minds.â&#x20AC;? What advice does King offer to other aspiring entrepreneurs who might be dreaming on a Mexican beach? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help is the key,â&#x20AC;? he stresses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leap of faith to allow me to do thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough about that. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to contact the experts in the field; you can take or leave their advice, but at least you have their words. Throughout the process, take a step back and keep the big picture in mind. I almost made a different product due to costs, but I stayed on course. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change paths because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the easier one to take, and definitely be f lexible and open-minded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You must have passion and really feel in your heart that what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is right. The passion will sustain you when you hit bumps,â&#x20AC;? he laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and there are always going to be bumps.â&#x20AC;? For retail inquiries, contact Ted King at getkind@ aol.com.

4E4AHC78=66>4B f thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any bright side to the durned Great Recession, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that terriďŹ c places have embraced some Great Recession prices, such as Starkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steakhouse, recently lauded in these pages for its crazy cheap weekday happy hour from 3pm to 6pm. Meanwhile, out on the shores of Tomales Bay, Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cove is offering a Localâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Combo at the bar every Thursday and Friday night composed of three barbecued oysters, a burger and fries, and a draft beer for a tidy $14.95. They call it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;three-course mealâ&#x20AC;?; we call it pure brilliance when beer counts as a full course.

On the pricier-but-for-a-better-cause-than-merely-yourown-stomach side of things, Marin Organicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual fundraiser is slated this year for Oct. 25 at Sausalitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cavallo Point Lodge. More than just a dinner, this is an experience, and it clocks in at the experiential price of $250 per person or $350 a couple. Five hundred dollars buys a chance to dine with either Italian master butcher Dario Cecchini, featured in Bill Bufordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book Heat, or artist Douglas Gayeton, author of Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town. Any ticket purchases entry to the art show preceding the dinner, beginning at 5:30pm; those not dining should expect to tithe $75 to Marin Organic for the pleasure. Wood-roasted, pasture-raised lamb, slow-cooked fall greens with black garlic au jus and coalroasted beets with quinoa, fresh ricotta and a trufďŹ&#x201A;e emulsion are among the promised menu items. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a charitably large yum. To learn more, go to www.marinorganic.org. . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;Social Media Sommelierâ&#x20AC;? Gary Vanerchuk, owner of Wine Library TV, a video blog devoted to all things enophiliac that is somehow a $60 million dollar business, will be at V. Sattui Winery on Oct. 24 to read from and sign his newest, Crush It! Why Now Is the Time to Cash in on Your Passion, which details how businesses can harness the power of the web to endlessly expand. V. Sattui is donating a portion of the daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proceeds to a local school. Learn more at www.vsattui.com. . . . Stryker Sonoma Winery takes a funny attitude toward business, pairing wine education with standup comics from the San Francisco Comedy College, launching the Comedy in the Cellar series on Oct. 24, staring with a wine-release party and food, followed by a light-hearted winetasting class and wrapping in the barrel cellar with comics Kellen Erskine and Jeff Applebaum. Call 800.433.1944 for details. . . . Graton Ridge Cellars hosts a Pink Party to honor breast cancer awareness on Oct. 25 with free wine and food and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty in Pink Wall of Fameâ&#x20AC;? featuring portraits and names of those affected by breast cancer. 707.823.3040. . . .

70D2: 24;;0AB he tasting room was only open by happenstance on Thursday afternoon for a group that had yet to materialize from the muggy gray day, but Greg Hauck was welcoming curious passersby in to sample his wines, no problem. Hauck had reason to be in a good mood: he had got most of his grapes in before the rain, and his wine had just won double gold medals at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair.

T

I joined some out-of-towner art aďŹ cionados who had just dropped in because of the artwork on Hauckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s label. What I had originally and mistakenly surmised was a disquieting artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rendition of Margaux, an earnest Weimaraner who appears on Hauckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sauvignon Blanc label, actually depicts a mountain lion and a deerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in what disquieting or perhaps surprisingly peaceful pairing Hauck says is open to interpretation. Although perhaps too often compared to art, wine is also open to interpretation, the grape being far less portable. Wine fans Greg and Jennifer Hauck became enamored of Sonoma County through their travels, convinced that they must make their own Bordeauxstyle wines. So they uprooted themselves from the peach tree state and landed in this 1948 Quonset hut just off the Healdsburg plaza. The tin-roofed hut has been many things over the years: laundry, army surplus store, and more recently, the Chateau Felice tasting room. It sports a long bar with plenty of elbow room.

Hauck Cellars, 223 Center St., Healdsburg. Open Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tuesday 11:30amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm; until 7pm Friday and Saturday. $10 fee; one taste free. 707.473.9065.

Hauck says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re discontinuing their Syrah program, and not without good reason. The otherwise balanced 2005 Russian River Valley Syrah ($25) is marred by funky aromas of wet hay and chopped weeds. Hauck says they had wanted a simple table wine like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed in French country inns, but have not been happy with it; indeed, if only it was not a California Syrah, it might be lauded for its rustic typicitĂŠ.

We are now offering a public tour of our historic winemaking facility!

The 2006 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($48) has a pretty raspberry nose much like the Zin, with a plush structure, and garnered best of class at the 2009 Harvest Fair. With distinct notes of cranberry-cherry, and a hint of licorice, the 2006 Tableau ($49) Bordeaux style blendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best feature is the sleek ďŹ nish of a claret some years its senior, only lightly astringent, not grippy or drying.

No matter. The Haucksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; self-stated aim is to be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best Bordeaux house in Sonoma County.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tall order, but so far, not bad for kids from the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only been at it since 2004, but Hauckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wines are showing a well-deďŹ ned style. The 2007 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel ($30) has a pretty nose of crushed raspberry fruit, with both vanilla and toasty cedar spice, from . . . a combination of American and French oak barrels? Yep, point for me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much a typical Dry Creek Zinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more like a bright Merlot with no hint of greensâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delicious quaff.

>=58A4 Bill McKibben will have spent 355 of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 365 days on the road alerting us to the challenges of global warming.

=^]T;XZT8c7^c Activist Bill McKibben thinks you should know that global warming isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already here By Gretchen Giles

B

ome 600 people, many with gray ponytails, fill the auditorium at the Sonoma Country Day School. Their earnest metal water bottles clank as they settle into their seats. A short film plays, featuring ugly potato puppets portraying John and Yoko in bed. Instead of protesting the Vietnam War, the two are protesting climate change. Even as a tuber, Yoko remains a fresh object of derision to boomers. Her little potato mouth promises to â&#x20AC;&#x153;scream a song to Mother Nature.â&#x20AC;? The audience howls delightedly. They remember John and Yoko. A short documentary screens, showing area high school students working for climate change. The audience claps heartily. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of their grandchildren. An elderly musician in Birkenstocks is ushered on. Dreary songs about the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise commence, the musician exhorting the dutiful audience to sing along. Sitting in the front row, author and climate

change activist Bill McKibben is game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Save some trees for me,â&#x20AC;? he mouths, his head bobbing. The musician thankfully finishes and, after a brief introduction, McKibben quickly mounts the stage steps. The feeling in the room changes instantly. Having flown down from Alaska that morning, McKibben has been on five continents during the last nine days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the planet isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t warming up,â&#x20AC;? he jokes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for lack of me trying.â&#x20AC;? But the planet is warming up. Unable to stop it personally, McKibben is instead the relentless messenger of its alteration. Like food activist Michael Pollan, McKibben is tall, lean, ascetic, ridiculously well-educated and somewhat ill at ease in his role of scientific soothsayer. Like Pollan, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be in his home office writing than lecturing on our imminent demise. Unlike Pollan, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still stuckâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;on this night at leastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with the earnest, the gray ponytails, the activists who remember John and Yoko. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preaching to the converted, as the Prius-packed parking lot connotes. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling

educated, concerned citizens what they already know. Almost nothing, other than the plain dire facts of his humor-laced presentation, is new to them. His message couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more important, yet heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a household name. Not yet, at least. While Pollanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meme can be memorized like a short poemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;eat food, not much, mostly plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;McKibbenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is even easier. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a number: 350. Three hundred and fifty, the amount of carbon parts per million in the atmosphere that NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top climate scientist Jim Hansen has counseled will most closely support the earth upon which human civilization arose. McKibben has organized an international day of action in countries as disparate as Yemen and Croatia slated for Oct. 24 and known as 350 Day to highlight the number because 350 parts per million (ppm) is 37 numbers lower than the 387 ppm level that the atmosphere is currently at now. In other words, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already crossed what McKibben calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the red lineâ&#x20AC;? for succoring the climate upon which human civilization arose. By lots.

he author of 12 books, including the seminal 1989 global-warming text The End of Nature, McKibben, 49, is the kind of easy intellectual who joined the staff at the New Yorker magazine just after graduating Harvard. He has written about subjects ranging from Hundred Dollar Holiday, in which he outlines spending just that amount on winter festivities, to Maybe One: A Case for Smaller Families, which advocates having just one child, as he and his wife, the novelist Sue Halpern, have done with their daughter, Sophie. But all is not simply an orange stuck in a stocking for the lonely Christmas of an only child with McKibben. His relentless sense of humor and his indefatigable energy make him a fascinating magnet. A religious man who teaches Sunday school at the Methodist church near his Vermont home, McKibben needs that energy to survive the task he has set himself this year, one in which he will have spent 355 of the annumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 365 days on the road, away from his wife and daughter, spreading the word about climate change. For McKibben, it is a moral necessity. He knows the truth about global warmingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen it first-hand from Bangladesh to Pakistan to Phuket to Mongolia to China. Global warming and climate change are not coming, he counsels: theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here. The 10 feetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;feetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of water that fell last month on Taiwan is just one of an alarming number of natural calamities that attest to that. McKibben has had dengue fever in Bangladesh, seen a rock new to human eyes suddenly emerge from a Mongolian glacier and knows that rising sea levels are already salinating the fresh Ganges River. If he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t personally deliver this truth to every person he can possibly grab by the lapels, he will have failed himself. He will have, in fact, harmed his own soul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing I am doing today is the single most important thing I can be doing,â&#x20AC;? McKibben says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to find out in the next few years whether this big brain [that humans have] was a good idea and if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linked with a big enough heart.â&#x20AC;? And so, with red-rimmed eyes and a practiced presentation, McKibben finds himself on yet another stage in yet another town in yet another country trying to convince some 600 people at a time that this is something they should be concerned about.

s comfortable in front of the microphone as at the dinner table, McKibben has told his tale hundreds of times, changing it only to include the newest natural tragedy briefly grabbing international headlines, all of it, save Katrina, in far-off nations that, he passionately declares, â&#x20AC;&#x153;did nothing to deserve it!â&#x20AC;? But even with an audience of the Priusdriving graybeards reasonably versed in the actual way of the world, McKibben must explain the petty basics of the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ecology. A plant that has for the millennia flowered

10.21.09-10.27.09

at a certain week in April when the light and heat conspire perfectly and has been a fecund food source for an insect whose life cycle is keyed to the plant and is itself a delicious meal for an amphibian which awakens from the mud just as the insect is at its plumpest, which is itself a gorgeous lump of protein for a bird whose migration pattern is in part set by the availability of frogs in the area and whose eggs are a yummy treat for a mammal that has come to live year-round there due to the certainty of the eggs for its own breeding is in turn eaten by another mammal larger and more adept. Its remains are ravaged by scavengers, its gristle dissolved by bugs (which in turn are eaten by the migrating birds whose excrement nourishes the Aprilblooming plant). All of this rapacious blooming and pollinating and eating and excreting and reproducing and dying has eventually led humans to the establishment of such unnatural wealth as is found within any provincial supermarket. It is a cycle so seemingly robust that we simply take it for granted. But this life chain can beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and already has beenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;enormously upset by something as seemingly simple as a Fahrenheit degree, by an extra centimeterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of water, by a wind that should never have been whipped.

scholar-in-residence at Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Middlebury College, McKibben has plenty of access to young people and their sturdy energy. In 2006, he led a group of students and colleagues on a five-day walk through the Vermont woods that began at the poet Robert Frostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabin (â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The road not takenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seemed apropos,â&#x20AC;? he says) to make a global-warming statement that would end in Burlington. There, his group was joined by others until its ranks swelled to a thousand people marching upon Burlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city hall. It was, he realized sadly, the largest public protest for climate change ever yet staged. Astonished that the plight of the globe was so little remarked by its inhabitants, McKibben formed Step It Up in late 2006. Using a student team from Middlebury and the endless swathe of the internet, Step It Up promoted some 1,400 climatechange actions worldwide in April of 2007. McKibben was feeling pretty good about his work. And then the summer came, and then the Arctic melted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arctic sea was slowly melting, and then it suddenly fell off a cliff,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were losing ice sheets the size of California every month, at a rate 200 percent above what was predicted. My scientist friends panicked. This was on, and not just Arctic ice; there is 25 percent less sea ice than ever before. Satellite photos revealed that there was a lot less ice up top. Glacial ice is the most unsettling loss of all.â&#x20AC;? McKibben estimates that 300,000 people will die annually from global warming with just a one-degree temperature rise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we expect the planet to warm by five to six degrees more in this century if we do nothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the technology to imagine what the future will look like,â&#x20AC;? he continues.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scientific method has worked, but so far the political method has utterly failed. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a 20-year bipartisan effort to do nothing, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s succeeded brilliantly.â&#x20AC;?

sher Miller, executive director of the Post-Carbon Institute, a global think tank that counts McKibben and peak oil theorist Richard Heinberg among its fellows, looks at fossil fuels almost fondly, as in thoughtful reminiscence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big human story is that we won the lottery,â&#x20AC;? Miller says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found this amazing energy source that fueled our society and changed it completely, giving us luxuries and altering the course of human history entirely. Can you blame us for going nuts over it? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a moot point. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re living in a difficult time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re changing, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being dictated by climate. We have to be realistic, and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been living.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps the most sobering part of the global warming message is that we can swap out all the light bulbs we like, grow every bit of lettuce that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever eat ourselves, ride our bikes everywhereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and none of it will mean a thing unless our political leaders act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do we muster the will to get a global agreement that puts a price on carbon?â&#x20AC;? McKibben asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve it one bulb at a time, not one state at a time, not even one country at a time. We have to deal with it one planet at a time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to build a movement. I say that as if I know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. No one really knows how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to muster it.â&#x20AC;? 350 Day is his latest idea, a creative, almost joyful attempt to unite people the world over in protest against the lethargy of large, First World governments to alter policies, agreements, coal and oil consumption. Miller isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pessimisticâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;exactly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The environmental movement has failed,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guilting people, talking about abstractions like polar bears. Boiling down complex stuff into a simple number like 350 is a good way to use what otherwise has become a battle of data and talking points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be great if people take to the streets on Oct. 24,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one day. This is going to be every day. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already started.â&#x20AC;? McKibben could be said to agree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no guarantees that any of this will work,â&#x20AC;? he tells the Sonoma Country Day School audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are scientists who think that the machination weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put in process is unstoppable. But the best science says that we still have a window. Because we have that window, we have to fight. For 20 years, I wondered what this fight would look likeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very beautiful. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an amateur movement. This is a homemade operation, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing about it.â&#x20AC;? McKibbenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next focus after 350 Day is the December climate-change conference planned in Copenhagen. The United States will attend, as will other powerful polluting countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever we do at Copenhagen isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know what the bottom line is, and we have to keep at it. The negotiations are occurring between human

beings and physics and chemistry. Physics and chemistry have stated their bottom line: 350 is our demand.â&#x20AC;?

C

he most promising bit of national legislation, according to Ann Hancock, executive director of the Climate Protection Campaign, is something called â&#x20AC;&#x153;cap and dividend.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means putting a cap on carbon and every year reducing that cap so that every year, and rapidly, we meet the scientific imperative,â&#x20AC;? she explains. So-called gross pollutersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;think Exxon and its ilkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will have the option to purchase rights to use fossil fuels. Cap and dividend will raise energy prices, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, but the current proposal, put forward by Democratic representative Christopher Van Hollen of Maryland, would also offer customer rebates on energy use. Those who use less fossil fuel would receive more money back; those who use more, less. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that cap and dividend is the most powerful solution we need to have and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worldwide,â&#x20AC;? Hancock says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Sixties activist] Sal Alinsky said that most people will do the right thing for the wrong reasons, and I agree. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more concerned with our comfort and mortgage than we are with the climate. Pricing is the way to do it. The option of the right to pollute will generate perhaps trillions of dollars. It will torque the whole economy in a green direction. If people have to pay more money for fossil fuel and they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made whole, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reelect those people.â&#x20AC;?

ill McKibben is exhausted. After rallying the audience for an hour of passionate speech, his voice drops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We set out to organize the world, a ludicrous proposition. Only McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and CocaCola have succeeded. The only part of the climate-change movement thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been left out is the movement part.â&#x20AC;? But the key, he stresses, is the newest generation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The real leaders of the moment are young people,â&#x20AC;? he tells the sea of gray ponytails. A handful of students on the top tier applaud. Asher Miller agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this generational gap in the larger environmental movement,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Bill is helping to close that.â&#x20AC;? The next generation has every reason to be involved, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their adult lives, their children and probable grandchildren most affected. Climate change is here, and even if every coal facility in the world stopped production today, McKibben estimates that it will take two generations before we can return the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmosphere to 350 ppm. Miller, who has a toddler, chooses to be sanguine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fully expect that the next 10 years will be significantly different than the last 10 years,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are different, and the sooner we can internalize that, the sooner we can make changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The world is going to be different, but it may not be all bad.â&#x20AC;?

A43;8?BC82:C>> 2007 Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Golden Notebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the subject of a new way of reading.

F^aS7^bcPVT The future of reading in a digital world is bright, if you set books free By Clive Thompson

F

hen McKenzie Wark wrote Gamer Theory, an analysis of why people enjoy playing video games, Harvard University Press published it as a conventional hardcover. But Wark also put it online using CommentPress. The free blog theme blew the book open into a series of conversations; every paragraph could spawn its own discussion forum for readers. Sure enough, hundreds dove in, and pretty soon Gamer Theory had sparked erudite exchanges on everything from Platoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cave to Schopenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas on boredom. It felt as much like a rangy, excited Twitter conversation as it did a book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all because we opened it up and gave readers a way to interact with each other,â&#x20AC;? Wark says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It changed the way they read the book.â&#x20AC;? Books are the last bastion of the old business model, the only major medium that still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t embraced the digital age. Publishers and author advocates have generally refused to put books online for fear the content will be Napsterized. And you can understand their terror, because the publishing industry is in big financial trouble, rife with layoffs and restructurings. Literary pundits are fretting: Can books survive in this Facebooked, ADD, multichannel universe? To which I reply: Sure they can. But only

if publishers adopt Warkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective and provide new ways for people to encounter the written word. We need to stop thinking about the future of publishing and think instead about the future of reading. Every other form of media thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone digital has been transformed by its audience. Whenever a newspaper story or TV clip or blog post or white paper goes online, readers and viewers begin commenting about it on blogs, snipping their favorite sections, passing them along. The only reason the same thing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen to books is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re locked into ink on paper. Release them, and you release the crowd. BookGlutton, a site that launched last year, has put 1,660 books online and created tools that let readers form groups to discuss their favorite titles. Meanwhile, Bob Stein, an e-publishing veteran from the CD-ROM days, put Doris Lessingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Notebook online with an elegant commenting system and hired seven writers to collaboratively read it. Neither move should come as a surprise. Books have a centuries-old tradition of annotation and commentary, ranging from the Talmud and scholarly criticism to book clubs and marginalia. Stein believes that if books were set free digitally, it could produce a class of â&#x20AC;&#x153;professional readers,â&#x20AC;? people so insightful that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pay to download their footnotes. Sound unlikely? It already exists in the real world.

Microsoft researcher Cathy Marshall has found that university students carefully study used textbooks before buying them, because they want to acquire the smartest notes. The technology is here. Book nerds are now working on XML-like markup languages that would allow for really terrific linking and mashups. Imagine a world where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a URL for every chapter and paragraph in a bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; every sentence, even. Readers could point to their favorite sections in a social networking update or instant message or respond to an argument by copiously linking to the smartest passages in a recent bestseller. This would massively improve what bibliophiles call â&#x20AC;&#x153;book discovery.â&#x20AC;? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far more likely to hear about a book if a friend has highlighted a couple brilliant sentences in a Facebook updateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and if you hear about it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far more likely to buy it in print. Yes, in actual print. The few authors who have experimented with giving away digital copies (mostly in sci-fi) have found that they end up selling more print copies, because their books are discovered by more people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not suggesting that books need always be social. One of the chief pleasures of a book is mental solitude, that deep, quiet focus on an authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughtsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and your own. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going away. But books have been held hostage off line for far too long. Taking them digital will unlock their real hidden value: the readers. THE BOHEMIAN

Raven Players unleash devilishly fun â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Monster Bashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; benefit show By David Templeton

8

n the theater world, whenever an actor says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curtains,â&#x20AC;? the word usually signals the imminent demise of whomever they are swapping dialogue with. When John DeGaetano, the director of the Raven Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upcoming Halloween-weekend Monster Bash, says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curtains,â&#x20AC;? he is giving the specific reason for the popular annual variety show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raven Theater needs curtains for the stage,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And heavy-duty curtains arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheap.â&#x20AC;? Twelve thousand dollars, to be exact. The hope is that much of that cost will be raised by singing, dancing and joke-cracking monsters. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut of the Monster Bash (which included a staged recreation of Orson Wellesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famous War of the Worlds radio telecast) was so successful that it was immediately obvious that the show would be an annual occurrence. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program, however, without the radio show in the second act, will be able to feature twice as many performers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 16 separate performances,â&#x20AC;? says DeGaetano, who directs and appears onstage throughout the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really tell you what any of the acts are or what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made of, because the thing about the Monster Bash is that everything is a surprise. What happens from act to act is a surpriseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and who those performers turn out to be is a surprise. All I can say is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of very recognizable people in the show, most of them actors and singers whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been performing on stages all over the North Bay.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dead people always make a variety show more fun.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; OK, then. Unsubstantiated rumors have it that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;repeat performanceâ&#x20AC;? may be an enormous, colorful, unleashing of Michael Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thriller, with a horde of zombie dancers in full creep-show array. DeGaetano neither confirms nor denies this, but does admit that zombies may have been seen rehearsing dance moves in and around the Raven Theater over the last few weeks. DeGaetano also confesses that some recognizable horror-show faces will likely make an appearance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a little bit of a tribute to several of our horror-movie-type stars,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;horrormovie icons whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out there for years, and everyone has grown up with. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family show. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing too scary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea behind the show was to create a slightly scary version of a community talent show. The full variety show ref lects a range of what the North Bay has to offer. Some of the acts are by professionals, and some are by less experienced people who just had a really fun idea of what they wanted to present. Are some of these acts somewhat questionable? Yes. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say we have put together a show with a lot of range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Halloween,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is such a wonderful time of year. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something about it that is just inherently theatrical. I go way back with Halloween. When I was in college in Ohio, way back when, some friends and I put together a Halloween-themed musical act, and we ran the circuit of Halloween parties, with talent contests, and we won money all over town with that act. That may have been part of the inspiration for the Monster Bash. I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always room for outrageousness, and everybody needs an opportunity to show what they can do. Based on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turnout, I think that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a desire in the community to see what our friends and neighbors are up to.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply added value that some of those friends and neighbors will be dressed like the walking undead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dead people,â&#x20AC;? DeGaetano laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;always make a variety show more fun.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Monster Bashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; takes place Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, Oct. 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;31, at the Raven Performing Arts Theater, 115 North St., Healdsburg. 8pm. $15. www.ravenplayers.org.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cocoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; explores the early life of the woman who liberated womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bodies By Richard von Busack

>

ne of the most ardent pro-corset passages in literature is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Old Chevalier,â&#x20AC;? a Gothic tale by Isak Dinesen. An old man remembers the 1870s: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In those days a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was a secret which her clothes did their utmost to keep. . . . They made it their object to transform the body they encircled, and to create . . . a mystery which it was a divine privilege to solve.â&#x20AC;? The Chevalier remembers undressing a lady, â&#x20AC;&#x153;her waist still delicately marked by the stays, as with a girdle of rose petals.â&#x20AC;? You can see why some of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hipsters have gone back to the laces and whalebone. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;privilegeâ&#x20AC;? is a loaded word, never to be used lightly. In the well-done biopic Coco Before Chanel, Audrey Tautou plays the designer as modernist, a woman who assumed male privilege by assuming the simplicity and directness of their clothes. Chanel is, in this account, almost a transvestite in the preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; World War I period, taking shears to modify menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trousers, shirts and coats. Coco Before Chanel begins in an orphanage, where Gabrielle Chanel, the designer-to-be, is raised by immaculate nuns with pterodactylsize bonnets. After a rather vast leap to adulthood, the film shows Gabrielle and her sister, Adrienne (Marie Gillain), in new careers as saloon singers. Coco calculates her way into bed with a wealthy rouĂŠ named Ă&#x2030;tienne Balsan (BenoĂŽt Poelvoorde). Boldly, she pursues him back to his chateau and quickly steps into the life of a kept woman. Director Anne Fontaine reminds us that Coco Before Chanel is a movie from the country that gave us Rules of the Game. What could have been a dull bird-in-the-gilded-cage story turns urbane, with the ever-changing flow of power between Coco and the slightly wizened but sporty decadent. Balsan is the kind of self-amused playboy who nicknames

his prized coal-black racehorse â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snow White.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dedicated wastrel but an elegant one; when he realizes that another man has stolen Coco, he murmurs only, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m smiling, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the one who let the fox into the henhouse.â&#x20AC;? Two of Balsanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends prove influential: one is a curvy stage-farce actress named Emilienne (Emmanuelle Devos), who enjoys the little straw hats Coco keeps whipping up; the other is a self-made British businessman nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boyâ&#x20AC;? (Alessandro Nivola). Soon, Coco is mad about the Boy, even though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something of a cad. Sanely, the film makes no enormous claims for Coco Chanelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy. The end titles call it an empire, but Tautouâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;last seen, cigarette on lip, in a cage of mirrors, surrounded by models wearing her gownsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; makes it look mostly like hard work. Tautou is perhaps a little aged for the role (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too old to be an ingĂŠnue,â&#x20AC;? Emilienne judges), but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unusually sharp; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plausible to imagine why someone would love such a moody and direct woman. Without speeches, Coco Before Chanel gives all due importance to the little black dress, here seen making its debut at the Deauville Casino. One feels a little sad at the French impressionist beach scene on its way out, witnessing women in full gowns and parasols. Meringues on their heads, Coco mutters, seeing the gauze-laden cartwheel hats, which look like pastries. The change Chanel wrought was indubitably feminist, bringing physical and sexual freedom and the death of the corset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so easy to undress,â&#x20AC;? Boy tells her. The downside, of course, is the ideal of ascetic leanness as the essence of glamour today, which is a different kind of tyranny all together. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Coco Before Chanelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens at the Rialto Lakeside Cinemas on Friday, Oct. 16. 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.4840.

While Dave Brubeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Matt has splintered off on an experimental path as cellist with Evan Parker, Tom Waits, the Club Foot Orchestra and his acclaimed spazz-jazz group Oranj Symphonette, his other sons, Chris and Daniel, are content to walk the straight jazz line as the Brubeck Brothers. Both accompanied their father for many years, playing classics like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take Fiveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue Rondo a la Turkâ&#x20AC;? around the world, and their chemistry is rhythmic as well as brotherly. In their quartet, the melodic pianist Chuck Lamb and the tasteful guitarist Mike DeMicco are often overlooked, but the quartetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s originals, plus a few well-placed compositions by Brubeck Sr., wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as f luid with any other players. Take time out and see them on Thursday, Oct. 22, at the Lincoln Theater. 100 California Drive, Yountville. 8pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$35. 707.944.1300.

Most people know Jesse Olsen as the grandson of Tell Me a Riddle author Tillie Olsen, or as the tuba player and â&#x20AC;&#x153;leaderâ&#x20AC;? of the rambunctious Hubbub Club Marching Band. Most donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about his solo projects, like Ojito, which was recorded over a year in the high desert of New Mexico. With only a stream for water and limited solar electricity, Olsen used a hand-held cassette recorder to record pensive, smart, intricate compositionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes with the rain falling in the backgroundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and using those cassettes, the album was finalized with economically layered acoustic instruments and sparse, intimate vocals. Some of the songs sound like Guided by Voices outtakes, others recall the Mountain Goats; all of them evoke empty landscape and arid solitude with telltale sounds of the clunky â&#x20AC;&#x153;recordâ&#x20AC;? button being pushed. Olsen celebrates Ojitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release with Reverent Sisters, a new duo with Joni Davis and Faun Fablesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dawn McCarthy, on Saturday, Oct. 24, at Sebsatopol Center for the Arts. 8pm. $10. 707.829.4797.

Real Astro Rock You know who you are. You pick up the Bohemian, f lip past the news stories and arts features and go straight to the back of the paper to Rob Brezsnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Free Will Astrology column. The man has a way with words, if we may say so ourselves, both in print and in the years he fronted his agit-pop, off-kilter rock band World Entertainment War. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true! Brezsny, as lead singer, with songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Furnace of Nuclear Love,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pagan Jakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kick Your Own Ass!â&#x20AC;? The band fizzled in the early 1990s, but since thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a rule that every band from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s has to get back together, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re merely following orders from on highâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; with all original membersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when World Entertainment War bring their â&#x20AC;&#x153;pagan revival meeting mixed with a dance therapy session and a cynicsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pep rally and a tribal hoedown and a lecture at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Anarchists Just Wanna Have Funâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; think tankâ&#x20AC;? on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 19 Broadway. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 9pm. $18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.459.1091.

Behind the Drama There are just too many questions that longtime readers of the comic strip â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luannâ&#x20AC;? would have for its creator, Greg Evans, that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer them all. When will Tiffany finally get her full comeuppance? When will Luann finally clean her room? Will Puddles ever stop peeing on the floor? Like Charlie Brown kicking the football, these things may never happen, but Evans is at least willing to discuss why. The artist appears in Santa Rosa for a special â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adult Master Classâ&#x20AC;? on comic strips this weekend to reveal the methods that make Luann such a success. Advance registration is required when Evans teaches a class on Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. 10am. $40. Registration required; 707.579.4452, ext. 263.

BC08AF0HC>:A>=>B

One of the coolest things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of all year he Oliver Ranch is one of those places you hear about but never see. Famously closed to the public but hosting a veritable whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who of modern sculptureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richard Serra, Bruce Nauman, Andy Goldsworthyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the 90-acre ranch is the local art worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wonka factory, with hordes of fans hoping for a golden ticket from its dedicated, reclusive owner. That owner is Steve Oliver, former chairman at the SFMOMA and avid art collector, and golden tickets have been released for an intriguing, enlightening concert inside the Oliver Ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piece de resistance, the staggeringly bold 80-foot tower by artist Ann Hamilton. The concrete, cylindrical tower is massive, outďŹ tted with two intertwining staircases which spiral toward the open sky like double helixes. Below is a pool of water, and above is the towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open-air top story, boasting an incomparable view. And get thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the stairs serve as both seats for the audience and the performance stage for the Kronos Quartet this weekend. The insanely unique experience includes the world premiere of Purnati, by Indonesian composer Rahayu Supanggah. Supanggah himself will play the gendĂŠr, a metallophone instrument housed in wood which usually leads the traditional Balinese gamelan ensemble. Did we mention that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inside an 80-foot tower? And that the stage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a stage but is actually this crazy staircase? We did? Good. A post-concert reception follows in downtown Geyserville at Terroirs Artisan Wines with hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres and wine; the composer and performers will be on hand to talk aboutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what else?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;how bizarre and amazing it was to perform inside an 80-foot tower. This is something you might think is organized by an eclectic arts foundation out of New York, but in actuality itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beneďŹ t for the Santa Rosa Symphony, who redeem years of Broadway pops concerts with this one cutting-edge, exhilarating event. Unless you spent $500 to see Meredith Monk sing inside the Ann Hamilton tower last year, chances are this is something you have never done. Seize the opportunity to not only step inside the Wonka factory of art and support the Santa Rosa Symphony, but to also hear a world-renowned composer collaborate with the Kronos Quartet inside an amazing 80-foot tower on Friday, Oct. 23, the Oliver Ranch. Shuttles leave in various locations in Geyserville. 4pm. $125 includes reception; $75 taxdeductible. 707.546.8742. For more info and pictures of the 80-foot tower, see www.santarosasymphony.com.

No, Sonny Landreth does not have an invisible third hand laying slide guitar didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come easy for Sonny Landreth when he started learning at age 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really frustrated,â&#x20AC;? he remembers via phone from his Louisiana home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make heads or tails of it, and certainly tortured the family, and our dog. My dog, I think, suffered the most. Sonically, for him, it had to be excruciating. It got to the point where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just pick the guitar up, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d start running.â&#x20AC;? These days, Landreth picks up the guitar and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one off and running. Dazzling and inventive, he works the frets like a tap-dancing spider, both hammering the strings of his Stratocaster and nimbly weaving them into and out of each other with a slide on his pinky ďŹ nger. His endless spindles of technique have moved just about every major guitarist to sing his praises, and most who hear him swear heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grown a third invisible hand. Growing up in Lafayette, La., Landreth worked selling marching band instruments at Professor Ernyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Co., where a co-worker turned him on to the ďŹ nger-picking of Chet Atkins. The next year, he discovered Robert Johnson; the year after that, B. B. King, Clifton Chenier and Jimi Hendrix hit his radar. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as good a summation as any for Landrethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multifaceted style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all of that going on,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and with the backdrop of the culture here in Louisiana, it just made for a real rich environment.â&#x20AC;? While it would be fair for Landreth to join the ranks of stratospherically marketed â&#x20AC;&#x153;guitar godsâ&#x20AC;? like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, the easygoing 58-year-old appears genuinely uninterested in the requirements for the role. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wince his mouth into an aggro rock face when he solos, nor does he overly use effects pedals. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never quite ďŹ t the tag of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musician,â&#x20AC;? appealing to nonguitarists as well as the Fender faithful. Known largely for his long association with John Hiatt, Landreth at last is seeing acclaim pouring in for his solo work. From the Reach, his latest album, features diehard fans Eric Clapton, Mark KnopďŹ&#x201A;er, Dr. John and Jimmy Buffett, and in 2008 he was given a long-overdue honor on the cover of Guitar Player magazine, which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avidly read since its ďŹ rst issue. Tendonitis hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slowed him one bit, as he still develops new methods for his deep trick bag. See him when he plays on Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.545.2343. Gabe Meline

Chanteuse Teresa Tudury savors her new lease on a musical life By Bruce Robinson

Âş

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been about to make it any minute now for 40 years,â&#x20AC;? Teresa Tudury says matter-of-factly as she prepares to celebrate the release of her new CD, Such Fine Things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually the fifth release for the Occidental singer-songwriter, if you count all the way back to the early 1980s, but only her second since 1992. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You cannot imagine the opportunities Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve managed to eff-up,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to think that I was terribly self-sabotaging, but in retrospect I realize I was self-preserving, because the mediadriven entertainment industry is so toxic, and they tell every artist, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You need to be in Nashville or Hollywood,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I dutifully showed up for that. But my soul was just in total rebellion to all of that.â&#x20AC;? That subconscious antipathy first took the form of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a big, long bout of alcoholism,â&#x20AC;? Tudury admits. But even after attaining and maintaining sobriety in 1983, she stayed on in Hollywood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a big following in L.A., it was great. And then at the end of 2001, just as it seemed like I was getting very successful,â&#x20AC;? she recalls with a rueful laugh, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had this really horrible neurological explosion, a thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called global trauma, and it just

took everything. It was several years before I could even talk right. I never dreamed Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing music again.â&#x20AC;? A chain of circumstances brought her to Sonoma County, where nearly six years later she was able to once again pick up a guitar and begin piecing together some of her old songs. Now fully recovered, she marvels that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was almost like that illness recalibrated me. I believe with all my heart that my soul would rather have me dead than live an inauthentic life. So it did whatever it had to do to get me out of Hollywood and get grounded.â&#x20AC;? That turbulent history is in no way apparent when Tudury takes the stage these days. Adroitly accompanying herself on guitar, she moves smoothly between detailed folk balladry and broadly humorous songs with a political underpinning, her often hilarious off-the-cuff commentary providing the connective tissue that unifies the performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being onstage is where I do my best work and my best thinking,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on stage, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nowhere to go. You have to be immediately present and working in the moment with what is going on in the room with the people there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very intense to be plugged into that, and I really enjoy that about my work.â&#x20AC;? For Tudury, performing is the inverse of composing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to catch a song and its coming though me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kinda the same place I go when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sitting onstage,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same sort of spontaneous, mysterious, unconscious world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never really know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to write about,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a song starts to come, I put down whatever else Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing and go sit with it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one big discipline that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned, to not turn my back on a song when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to come through. I just try and get out of the way and let it start to unfold.â&#x20AC;? Even more than her original material, Tuduryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice commands attention, a bold, free-ranging contralto that soars from a whisper to a full-throated roar as it leaps between octaves, embracing nuance easily as it moves from a demure straight tone to a force-of-nature vibrato. It was a seventhgrade guitar teacher who awakened her recognition of this remarkable instrument, and sent her off to her first coffeehouse gigs, she recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been singing to myself as a baby in the crib. I just came in making music, no question about it.â&#x20AC;? With a background that includes an opera-loving Creole father from New Orleans, and her own fondness for distinctive singers like Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin, John Lee Hooker and Sarah Vaughn, Tudury embraces her current musical life gratefully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything I could imagine has been given up to me in a life of music,â&#x20AC;? she affirms softly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These songs and this lifestyle is my spiritual path. I take this work very seriously.â&#x20AC;?

Alice Walker benefits AIDS orphans in Kenya rom challenging racism and sexism in the Civil Rightsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;era Mississippi to exposing modern-day female circumcision throughout Africa and the Middle East, feminist hero Alice Walker has fought her battles far and wide. A household name since winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1983 for The Color Purple, Walker has addressed human rights issues through her writing in a dozen lightshedding books of both fiction and nonfiction. Now in her mid-60s, Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unwavering dedication to social justice focuses on AIDS orphans in Kenya. According to UNICEF, there are currently over 1 million children orphaned from parental AIDS deaths in Kenya each year. This astounding number feels even larger when considering the limited resources developing countries like Kenya have to address such crises. As with many issues around the globe, the task of tackling the effects of AIDS lie in the hands of grassroots and human-interest organizations. One of such groups is the Margaret Okari Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation in remote Kisii, Kenya. For over 13 years and with only $60 per month for each child, the Margaret Okari Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation has provided shelter, education and healthcare for children who have been orphaned by AIDS. In addition to the orphanage, the foundation has recently built a boarding school for older children that opened its doors earlier this year. Walker raises funds and a joyful noise for the foundation with a reading from her newest collection of poetry, Hard Times Require Furious Dancing on Sunday, Oct 25, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. Doors open at 1:30pm. $45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$50; includes chocolate, tea and an art exhibit. 707.433.3365. Dani Burlison

Barbara Ehrenreich bursts the bubble of positive thinking in America 2K be damned. Since the dawning of the 21st century, Americans have become obsessed with the power of positive thinking. From the New Age abundance fest of The Secret franchise to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;God wants you to be richâ&#x20AC;? brand of Christianity exhorted by evangelist Joel Osteen, the idea that we can change negative to positive through the sheer power of our minds has become a nearly unchallenged belief in the United States. With her new book, Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America (Metropolitan Books; $23), acclaimed feminist author Barbara Ehrenreich aims to pop the bubble of brightness that she says has led us down the road to recession and mass delusion. Ehrenreich has long been a literary rabble-rouser. Her bestselling book Nickel and Dimed saw the author going undercover to the true lives of the working poor. Her brilliant Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: A History of Women Healers pamphlet, co-written with Deidre English, has been a required text in feminist studies classes since its publication in 1972. On Oct. 23, Ehrenreich speaks about the themes in her latest book at Dominican University of California in an appearance sponsored by Book Passage. She was inspired to write Bright-Sided after being diagnosed with breast cancer, when she was overloaded with exhortations to think positively as a way to beat the disease. Ehrenreich decided to explore the origins of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the cult of cheerfulness,â&#x20AC;? that distinctly American way of being that encourages us to look at the bright side, despite the encroaching dark times surrounding us. Ehrenreich discovered the origins of systematic positive thinking among a collection of philosophers, mystics, lay healers and middle-class women of the 19th century. She traces the evolution of that line of thinking to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belief among the Christian right and many other â&#x20AC;&#x153;patriotsâ&#x20AC;? that Americans are chosen people and the United States is the greatest nation on earth, even as we dominate the global market for anti-depressants. Wall Street denizens and their ilk have a voracious appetite for positive thinking, according to Ehrenreich. In the book, she asserts that this making of lemons into lemonade is the very thing that has led us down the road to economic implosion. In a time when the answers to the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems seem to lie always out of reach, Ehrenreich brings her own theory about the crummy state of American capitalism to the table, one that she hopes will helps us recover from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;mass delusion that is positive thinking.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a secret, indeed. Barbara Ehrenreich speaks on Friday, Oct. 23, at Dominican Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angelico Hall, 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.

Naomi Klein takes on capitalism other Bonnie makes documentary movies. Father Michael is a doctor. Brother Seth presides over a think-tank. No wonder Naomi Klein is an overachiever. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the author of three in-your-face books, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made stirring movies, too, with her husband Avi Lewis, such as The Corporation and The Take, about insurrectionary factory workers in Argentina. Her first book, No Logo, was a hit, but for years the Montrealborn author was largely a well-kept secret of the left in Canada, the United States and Europe. Then Klein wrote The Shock Doctrine, her noholds-barred bashing of contemporary capitalism, and critics the world over sat up and took notice. Larissa MacFaquhar snottily profiled Klein in the pages of The New Yorker in December 2008 in an article titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Outside Agitator.â&#x20AC;? That media attention, though patronizing, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt. Ever since, Klein has agitated furiously on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border, and wherever the workers of the world are still in chains. Hey, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marxist, and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but fume about class and class conflict. Klein comes to Sonoma State University on Oct. 28 to talk about three of her favorite subjectsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; greed, globalization and disasterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and to answer questions from the audience. A careful researcher and an inspired propagandist, she writes for half a dozen newspapers, including The Nation, The Guardian, and The Globe and Mail. Born in Montreal in 1970, and only 39, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably just at the start of a career thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to make her even more famous than she is today. Now is the time to see her and hear her before she turns 40 and becomes a universally acclaimed icon of the global movement against capitalism. If Jack London were alive, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be sure to get a front row seat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Evening with Naomi Kleinâ&#x20AC;? is slated for Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 7:30pm. In the Cooperage, SSU, 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. Free to SSU students, faculty and staff; $15, general. 707.664.2382. Jonah Raskin

California Mermaid throws a fest to support fisherman ira Burgerman is Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only licensed mermaid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes people take me a little more seriously,â&#x20AC;? she explains of being officially registered as a trademark mermaid. And Vira wears her elaborate, hand-stitched tails for a worthy cause. For her day job, the mermaid cuts hair at her studio in Guerneville, but she grew up counting boats in Porto Bodega Marina with her father. She counted to make sure all who went out at first light were home safely by sunset. Growing up on the water kept the fishermen on the horizon close to her heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year there would be fewer and fewer boats,â&#x20AC;? she says. The fisheries were in decline. At age 19, Vira made her first appearance at the Fishermenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival as a mermaid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I traded my rubber boots for high heels and fins,â&#x20AC;? she says proudly. She took on the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;blessing of the fleetâ&#x20AC;? to ensure a good harvest and to honor the fallen fishermen. Over the years, Vira has lost friends to the sea and found herself to be a symbol of comfort for the families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mermaids take care of the fishermen lost at sea.â&#x20AC;? In 1998, Vira spent her life savings to launch the first Mermaidfest in order to spotlight independent fisheries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really dedicated to the fishermen,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They trust me.â&#x20AC;? The fishermen told her that true help begins with restoration of the rivers and tributaries. Everything ends up downstream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew nothing about rivers or tributaries,â&#x20AC;? she admits. She went to work and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped. Viraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mermaidfest has evolved into a venue for marine and waterway conservation education for all ages. Slated this year for Sunday Oct. 25, from 11am to 7pm, Mermaidfest supports the nonprofit Community Clean Water Institute at the Monte Rio Amphitheater with live music by the Jug Dealers, Levi Lloyd and George Heagerty. Plenty of kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; events, beer and food. Costumes welcomeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bring your fins! Monte Rio Amphitheater, 9925 Main St., Monte Rio. $5 donation; under 12, free. 707.484.8767.

Missed Connections AMAZON KINDLE Hello, I met you Friday June 27 at the Russian River Brewing Company on Fourth St. in Santa Rosa. She may be a computer programmer from St. Helena Hospital and watched on this day 3 movies back to back in the theater on Fourth St. in the town of Santa Rosa The Love Guru by Mike Meyers, Wall-E and another film. And she sipped a little beer and read from her Amazon kindle. I would like to get in touch with this girl and ask her to edit my book. She is a perfect candidate for my book. Hope to hear from you. Phil. 274972



CORINA IN OLIVER’S Saturday at 4:00PM, You had 15-yearold twins with blacks belts in karate. I have two cute little kids. We talked about children and kale. Lunch? 311695

Isn't she exquisite with her tiny little white painted toenails, her lovely round eyes, and her plaintive little cry?

Meet Boots • Kittys of the Week

Meet Bear • Dog of the Week

Can you guess where my name came from? Boots! People are so unimaginative! I personally think I deserve something much, much more elegant. And I've heard the cat cuddlers say that I'm a lover as well – what more could you ask for? To learn more about adopting Boots or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us at 5345 Hwy 12 West, Santa Rosa (@ Llano Rd), open everyday from 12-6pm, or check us out online at www.SonomaHumane.org

This is one handsome dog, a 1 year old English Mastiff mix. There's a lot of dog to love here but he's really a bit of a “gentle Ben” or should we say “Bear”. Very easy going and playful and has fun with kids, cats, and other dogs and will happily work for food!
