Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 06.23.16

The Diablo Canyon Nuke will shut and we are honored to talk about it with three great players in this amazing success for citizen activism.

Jim Riccio of Greenpeace USA gives us the perspective of a world-class safe energy campaigner on the global stage. Linda Seeley of the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace tells us what’s happening on the local level with one of the most powerful and persistent of all our grassroots groups. Ace Hoffman fills us in from the backyard of San Onofre, which he has helped to shut, and whose epic struggles with massive debt and unmanageable wastes continue unabated.

Together we vet the Diablo shutdown agreement. We start with PG&E’s admission that all Diablo’s power can be got from renewable. We explore the landmark deal that’s been cut with organized labor and we emphasize the reality that this agreement has been pioneered by environmental groups whose commitment to a green-powered Earth is unshaken.

For an in-depth look at the most important step yet taken toward end nuke power and winning a Solartopian future, don’t miss this show.

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.
