          “Mind is the antithesis of reflex, and only mind could discover mind.”
          - Buckminster Fuller reminding us just how important mind is.
          In other words, we need to use our mind before we simply react
          without thinking. Time to employ our minds more so we don't make
          the same "mistakes" over and over. Contemplate, learn and grow.

          -L. Steven Sieden


1. Latest News from the Buckminster Fuller Institute - Fuller Challenge


"Either you're going to go along with your mind and the truth, or you're going to yield to fear and custom and conditioned reflexes. With our minds alone we can discover those principles we need to employ to convert all humanity to success in a new, harmonious relationship with the universe. We have the option to make it."

—R. Buckminster Fuller

Throughout Fuller’s lifetime he emphatically insisted that the resources – intellectual and physical – to ensure every human being had the option to live a dignified life is at hand. The design of a world that works for an increasing number of people, living in balance with the earth’s life support systems is an urgent imperative Bucky foresaw over 50 years ago.

          “We are not yesterday’s breakfast. We are eternal patterns
          that have gathered material elements around us so that
          we may play in this game of life.”
          - Buckminster Fuller reminding us that we are not the
          physical bodies most of us believe is so important.
          We are eternal spiritual beings using these "rental bodies"
          to learn and contribute. You and I are ongoing pattern
          integrities with specific missions here on Earth.
          What's your mission? How are you manifesting it here, now?

          -L. Steven Sieden

2. Monthly Message From Peter Meisen - San Diego

100% Renewable Cities — Taking a Stand

Dear GENI Friend,

More people today live in urban areas and cities than in rural communities.  70% of the world's CO2 emissions are produced by our cities.  We use fossil fuels to electrify, heat our buildings and power our vehicles.  So cities have a major role to play in providing solutions. 

As you know, GENI works to link renewable energy resources between nations around the world.  We also know that every city has a critical role to play.  We all need to "think global and act local" to solve this issue.

Todd Gloria, the San Diego City Council's 2014 President, presenting at the World Resources SimCenterThis year we have been partnering with the San Diego Renewable Energy Society to drive this work in our own city.  We invite you do the same!

San Diego has recently drafted a Climate Action Plan that sets several goals.  Todd Gloria, the San Diego City Council's President, has pledged that San Diego will be 100% renewable by 2035.  That's a big goal and a heavy lift from our current status.

During the presentation, we learned 4 ways that cities have achieved 100% renewable status, and that the US EPA has a Top 30 list of City Governments who are already doing this — so any city can learn from these early adapters.

Take the 100 percent renewable San Diego Pledge San Diego's Climate Action Plan is not perfect — and it is a good place to start for your city.  The 5 Core Strategies include: water/energy efficiency in buildings, clean electricity, better transit options, zero waste, and climate resiliency.  These are excellent ideas for your city, and we ask that you engage your Mayor and Council.

In Partnership for the Planet,

Peter MeisenGENI's 25th Anniversary Seal -- 1987-2012

  “Dare to think. Dare to go with the truth.
          And dare to really love completely."
          - Buckminster Fuller reminding us what is really important.
          Thinking for oneself. Following the truth as you perceive it.
          Loving with all your heart. It worked for Bucky.
          It can work for everyone. -- 2015 - The Year to Be Fuller.

        -L. Steven Sieden

        "God makes no mistakes. Never fear God."

          of fighting against the dharma of life.
          Time to relax and enjoy the ride - while working to
          make things better in the next moment and the next.

          -L. Steven Sieden
