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.
