BREAKING: Dangerous San Onofre reactors PERMANENTLY shut down

More good news on the moving away from dangerous fuels and toward a sustainable planet front!

The news just broke this morning: after years of fighting toe-to-toe with the billion dollar nuclear industry, WE WON!

Southern California Edison, the utility that operates the damaged San Onofre nuclear plant, has given up, saying it’s not economically feasible to continue trying to repair the crippled reactors.

The reactors were shut down over 18 months ago after the failure of newly installed steam generators caused a radiation leak.

This is tremendous news for the people of Southern California — and also for the country as a whole. It’s another example of the failed promise of dirty and dangerous nuclear power, and it clears the way for a transition to a clean and safe energy economy based on the sun and wind.

Thanks for standing with us,

The Tide is Shifting Because of YOU!

I just got this in email and wanted to share-please feel free to reblog, repost, email or share however you can. When we work together we are powerful and we CAN stop the agenda of those who see all living things as objects to be used, or destroyed as long as it profits them.

Today in San Diego, the California Coastal Commission said NO to the Navy and their plan to deploy bombs and sonar sound off the Coastline that would likely injure, maim or kill millions of cetaceans over the next 5 years. They said that the Navys position is inadequate and unsupported by facts. They also said that the Navy did not keep its agreements in the past and that there was no point in making a compromise with them. In attendance were Lyndia, Lance and Kim of Whale and Dolphin Watch, several representatives from NRDC, Greenpeace, many other ocean organizations and dozens of individuals from near and far.

Although the decision only affects California waters, it is still significant as it sets a major precedent for the whole country. This will have far reaching implications for what can be done next, and ultimately the safety of our cetacean friends, the health of our oceans and our planet. In this case, your participation may have shifted the tide that has so long moved in the direction of disrespect and outright disregard for our oceans. We hear from a major environmental organization that your signatures have energized this movement in a big way!!!

We are not done with this issue yet. This week end is our last chance for signatures on our petition to go to NOAA/National Marine Fisheries on Monday. Will you help us out?

Heres what we want you to do next:

1. 1. Call and network with your friends and get them to sign this last petition

2. 2. Post on your Facebook page

3. 3. Go to our Facebook page and like us (link on our website)

4. 4. Sign up for ongoing information on our website to keep abreast of this issue

From the bottom of our hearts, we wanted to say a big Thank You for your signature on our petitions and your ongoing support. You are awesome people and we are deeply humbled by your support of our oceans.

Lyndia, Lance, Kim and Wes
