/*
Solar Nation Action Alert: A special deal for the holidays - ASES 
membership at a steep discount!

Join the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) before the end of January for less than two-thirds of the regular price!

ASES is the foremost nonprofit association of solar advocates, educators, legislators, and professionals in the United States.  
It's where people interested in solar go to learn more; where people looking to install solar go to find professionals in their area and where
those professionals go to stay informed, build connections and join technical groups.

Established in 1954, ASES has provided educational opportunities for professionals and advocates, helped shape policy both locally and nationally,
and produced the award-winning SOLAR TODAY magazine.  

As ASES Board member Nate Mitten says, "ASES was proclaiming the promise of renewable energy a long, long time before 'green' was mainstream."

SOLAR TODAY magazine connects you to the leading solar energy experts. FINDSOLAR locates solar installers and tells you about solar incentives.
The ASES NATIONAL SOLAR CONFERENCE is America's leading educational conference for solar energy professionals. The ASES NATIONAL 
SOLAR TOUR is the world's largest grassroots solar energy event.

You can join in one of two ways:

_**DECEMBER 30: Climate Change Solutions Film Screening w/Director - 
/Los Alamos, NM

/*

*This Thursday!
*

*7PM at Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC)
*

 

“The Next Frontier: Engineering the Golden Age of Green,” a new 
documentary describing solutions to problems of climate change, will be 
shown at PEEC, 3540 Orange Street in Los Alamos, on Thursday, December 
30, at 7 p.m.  Brad Marshland, director and filmmaker, will be present 
to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.

 

“The Next Frontier” cuts through the debate about global warming and 
climate change.  Instead, it focuses on the renewable, clean energy 
technologies that can improve our future and create significant economic 
opportunities.  Filmed in stunning high-definition, the movie takes you 
around the world to see how other countries are changing the ways they 
use energy, and then returns to the US to ask, can Americans do the same? 

 

Host Becky Worley, of ABC’s Good Morning America, interviews some of the 
top energy and economic experts in the country, along with educators and 
high-level government officials, to see how they are working to develop 
clean energy solutions. 

 

The documentary has been shown around the country on ABC and PBS 
stations.  Now is your chance to meet the director and discuss the 
filming and ideas behind the movie with him.  The screening is free, but 
donations are appreciated to support PEEC’s programs.  For more 
information, go to www.PajaritoEEC.org 
<http://www.pajaritoeec.org/> or www.thenextfrontiermovie.com 
<http://www.thenextfrontiermovie.com/>, call 662-0460, or
