First– Diablo Canyon – Update. And again we are forever grateful to our world renowned Mothers for Peace for making this happen.
Since the explosive document charging that Diablo Canyon is vulnerable to earthquakes and should be shut down Barbara Boxer has gotten involved and delaying tactics which seem to be the hallmark of the NRC are being brought to the forefront and addressed. Here are a couple of links you can sign and share to keep the pressure on our legislators to do the right thing and get Diablo shut down.
1 :: Tell NRC Chairman: SHUT DOWN DIABLO CANYON!
2 :: Petitioning Nuclear Regulatory Commission –
Decommission the aging Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant
3 :: NRC: Shut Down Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant
And it also seems that our Board of Supervisors has also written a letter to the NRC asking for the documents that the NRC has conveniently neglected to respond to for weeks, months and years. You can let the Board know this kind of cooperation is much appreciated. Here is their contact info. http://www.slocounty.ca.gov/bos.htm
Second – Reminder – Peoples Climate March – Sept. 21 Mitchell Park – 2pm. Heidi Harmon hosting.
Third – Triple Divide documentary on Fracking Tuesday Sept. 16 7pm SLO Grange Broad Street.
Triple Divide is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking, capable of speaking to all sides of the issue with exclusive interviews from the industry, environmental and political experts, and Americans suffering as a result of shale gas development. http://www.hopedance.org/events/icalrepeat.detail/2014/09/16/771/-/triple-divide-film-discussion?filter_reset=1
“It’s hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing Triple Divide,” said Jed Thorp of the Ohio Sierra Club after seeing the film for the first time this summer.
Discussion after. Bob is looking for sponsors.
Maybe we need to invite our elected officials? No harm in asking. http://www.slocounty.ca.gov/Page8417.aspx
