Janaia Donaldson, Co-Producer/Host of Peak Moment TV: Community Responses for a Changing Energy Future
They call themselves "The Yuba Gals" since they live near the Yuba River in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area in Northern California. This summer of 2006 they have traveled around Washington and Oregon and up to Vancouver, Canada discovering that "people have a lot more options and resources than we and they might think in terms of energy conservation and sustainable living" says Janaia. she then gives examples they have found of groups of people salvaging building materials from run-down buildings and recirculating these materials-- which conserves resources, avoids adding to landfills and makes for less expensive building projects. They have found numerous growers' markets and co-ops which help create independent communities as well as individuals actually circulating lawful local currencies (talk about solution-think!), as well as rainwater collection methods, car co-ops so people don't have to own cars (it works!), electric bikes, energy farms and so many more equally inspiring ways in which individuals have taken this kind of conscious action.
Janaia stresses that her approach does not include trying to convince people that "Peak Oil is real or "Global Warming is real" or fill-in -the-buzz-word "is real" but rather to go to those who already have awareness of these issues and asking the question "what can we do?". She also expresses the opinion that the examples set by conscious, creative individuals will then bring about more awareness simply by proxy and in a non-confrontational way.
The Yuba Gals would appreciate it if you let your local TV station know you would like to see their weekly half hour show.
Recorded in August 2006.
