SAMe (s-adenosinemethionine) works well, better than commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals in many studies, especially with B6 and B12; deficiencies in them often accompany depression. It's been used in Europe for around 20 years, but I heard about it in a UCSB pharmacology course in the seventies. Not mostly flouride, like Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, and most psychotropic drugs. It's naturally produced, and spinal fluid from clinically depressed people often shows levels below normal. The only negative side effect I'm aware of is increased manic symptoms in people with bipolar disorder, but there may be others. It's marketed only for its anti-arthritis and related antiinflammatory effects in the US. Flouride is toxic and it's associated with agressive and violent behavior as well as brain damage.The Rockefeller family controls around 60% of the US pharmaceutical industry, and there's no reason to believe they have intentions that benefit others. In 1969 Paul Ehrlick mentioned, during a presentation to MDs on the CFR's (former president Daid Rockefeller) plan for depopulation that included denying medical treatment that extended life, that the cure for cancer was "in David Rockefeller's safe'. US pharmaceutical companies have reduced production of prescription medications required to keep people alive in favor of drugs with a higher level of profit in recent years, and have lobbied to restrict the sale of natural supplements. Cannabis is also excellent medicine for depression.

The water requirements of almonds is very significant in California, and a drain on the state's resources that's difficult to justify, since the majority of the crop is exported. It reminds me of the idiocy of raising grass-fed Kobe beef in the Imperial Valley, but I don't know if that's still done.

nomoresanity: Geoengineering is contributing to the current drought, though. Any water vapor in the atmosphere condenses on the large quantity of nanoparticulate aluminum and barium present in the stratosphere, and the small size and large quantity of the particles prevents condensation large enough to form raindrops, according to many sources I've read.This link has a good international chronology, but it's incorrect about the use of geoengineering to reduce global warming; there really hasn't been any in over 17 years, only alteration of historical records. There are more recent record low temperatures than record high temperatures, and no heat stored in the oceans according to temperature measurements; it's all stored in climate models. http://www.willthomasonline.net/chemt...

Skateboards are a means of transportation that's as common and useful as bicycles. According to the California Vehicle Code, it's also legal to make a right turn on a red light, in spite of recently-installed signs downtown that say it's illegal. Cars idling at intersections with no traffic is a great way to reclaim the pollution levels we've lost by encouraging biking.I think we should acknowledge the fact that the purpose of a lot of laws is solely to generate income for the city and enable city government's policy of diverting an increasing percentage of tax dollars to SBPD while ignoring the elephant in the city of unsustainable public employee pension liability.

JarvisJarvis: Inverters don't last as long as solar panels. I've already replaced my inverter and still have 17 years of warranty on my panels. My experience is that they're always replaced, not repaired. Sunny Boy is an inverter model made by SMA, a German company. They're not a big deal, just 240-120V DC-AC inverters. Solar is great, and Alan Heeger's flexible panels are awesome. The real problem is that the NWO agenda, which is primarily a depopulation agenda, is explicitly anti-technology, and returning to the Stone Age is incompatible with the continued development of green technology.

UCSB has campus cops who monitor intersections of bikepaths and roads and pedestrian walkways and who write citations for failing to stop or yield - bikepaths aren't isolated.

AutoCoalition: Another argument based on a logical fallacy: Did any of these people die due to head injuries? If any of these people had head injuries that could cause death, did they have additional injuries that would have been fatal? If so, should we mandate wearing body armor to reduce fatalities?

Do we have trash pickup and delivery of food to supermarkets and fire department response in emergencies because we've designed infrastructure for them or because we desire them? This discussion sounds more like a kindergarten class making suggestions about an idealized community than comments by people old enough to have a driver license.

JarvisJarvis - The 2006 city study on homelessness included a plan to increase the number of beds to 500 within a year, and increase that number to 1200 by the end of the following decade. There aren't 2000 homeless beds in santa Barbara.

tabatha: Not true. Solar panels have a finite lifespan, and a large percentage of panels currently manufactured contain material that's been recycled using petroleum products, although the majority of petroleum products probably aren't derived from fossils but are continously produced in the earth's core.Chinese solar panel manufacrtures have used recycled material for at least a decade.
