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 – 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.
