Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 06.16.16

SOLARTOPIA is home to two great activists, David Swanson and Linda Seeley who are fighting against war and the Diablo Canyon nuke.

David starts with his World Beyond War perspectives on military madness and the fact that nearly all terror attacks are motivated by people seeking revenge for US attacks on their country.

David’s legendary speeches and writings on peace, disarmament and the need to abolish nuclear weapons have made him one of the world’s leaders in winning us a peaceful planet.

Linda then speaks to us from San Luis Obispo, California, on the June 28 hearing in front of the California Lands Commission. The three members of this commission will determine whether Pacific Gas & Electric, owner of the Diablo Canyon nukes, will be required to meet standards laid out in 1970 by the California Environmental Quality Act. Signed by then-Governor Ronald Reagan, the law requires an Environmental Impact Review to protect the tidewater regions now being abused by Diablo Canyon’s cooling system.

A long-time veteran of the fight for safe energy, Linda gives us the details on a regulatory debate that could finally force shut two of the world’s most dangerous nukes.

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 02.25.16

SHUTTING THE DIABLO CANYON NUKE is essential to the survival of human beings in North America. We discuss developments at this twin reactor complex sitting on a dozen earthquakes faults with key experts in the fight.

JIM HEDDLE and MARY BETH BRANGAN of the ENVIRONMENTAL OPTIONS NETWORK of northern California are joined by DONNA GILMORE of SAN ONOFRE SAFETY and CYNTHIA PAPERMASTER OF CODE PINK.

We discuss the criminal negligence by Pacific Gas & Electric that blew up 50 houses in the town of San Bruno and killed 8 people. Such irresponsible safety abuse is everywhere evident at Diablo Canyon, where radioactive fuel canisters are leaking, critical security features can’t be inspected and major operating components have been installed upside-down.

Thankfully, the BERKELEY CITY COUNCIL has joined the movement for sanity by passing a resolution to shut Diablo Canyon as soon as possible.

This deep exploration with four great activists will tell you much you need to know to push ahead for the shut-down of these truly horrifying nukes.
