    California Fracking Regulations — Meetings & Discussion groups in Monterey and Santa Barbara.

    >>"“Discussion draft” hydraulic fracturing regulations released; public workshops scheduled for April 19 in Santa Barbara and April 30 in Monterey.

    The Department of Conservation/Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources on December 18, 2012 released a “discussion draft” of regulations for the oil and natural gas production technique known as hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”). What does “discussion draft” mean? It means that this version does not begin the formal rulemaking process. Instead, it is a starting point for discussion by key stakeholders – industry, the environmental community, other regulators, and interested members of the public – in preparation for the more formal process.

    These “discussion draft” regulations include provisions for pre-fracturing well testing; advance notification;
    The Department will conduct stakeholder workshops to receive input on the “discussion draft” regulations on Friday, April 19, 2013 in Santa Barbara and Tuesday, April 30, 2013 in Monterey. The meetings will run from noon to 8 p.m.. The Santa Barbara meeting will be held at the University Club of Santa Barbara, 1332 Santa Barbara Street, Santa Barbara CA, 93101. The Monterey meeting will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1000 Aguajito Road, Monterey CA, 93940. The actual “discussion draft regulations” and other materials can be found…"<< (cont)…

    The Japanese military leader Yamamoto feared the "sleeping giant" of the USA after the sneak attack at Pearl Harbor in 1941.

    If the US was a sleeping giant…how huge are the angry Chinese afraid their health and agricultural wealth may fall victim to the nucleorats who massacred central Japan? Fukushima Daiichi NPP has ruined for centuries massive organic farms lost to radiation and it looks ominously that in this decade the continued radiation fallout from the still out of control Daiichi complex will destroy human existence in Tokyo (Goodbye 2020 Olympics unless they plan on holding three-legged races…for single children entrants).

    The Chinese can not afford a nuclear dead zone in heavily populated areas or they will become Mad Max country.

    Some Chinese realize this:

    "Protesters in Jiangmen hold up signs saying ”against nuclear [power]”反核"
    "What they protested against? A nuclear fuel processing plant (核燃料加工厂). Some Western media have called it NIMBY protests (Not In My BackYard), and maybe that is some of the truth. From some available reports it seems that the protests were mostly against the location of the plant, not totally against nuclear power as such. It is still very unusual, especially since they managed to get the government of Jiangmen to reverse their decision and not give permission for the plant."

    WASTE CONFIDENCE HEARINGS
    As we all have real worries about the spent fuel pool in Japan we must work to have the United States Government address the problem of what to do with the spent fuel pools in the United States. You have an opportunity to participate in a series of public hearings starting Oct. 1st around the U.S. on the issue of nuclear waste. Go to this website and scroll down to see the list of where the twelve hearings are occurring. People can conference call into the first and last hearings. You can also submit written comments during this process if you cannot attend the hearings. I recommend doing both, attending and submitting a written statement.
    http://www.nrc.gov/waste/spent-fuel-storage/wcd/pub-involve.html

    These are being referred to as “the waste confidence hearings” they are part of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) decision making process.

    What is it about?
    Anti-nuclear people won a great victory in court that has put a hold to the U.S. NRC’s ability to license any new nuclear reactors or to extend existing licenses of all nuclear reactors in the U.S.

    (continued…)

    • enoughalready45 enoughalready45

      (…continued Waste Confidence Hearings)
      The NRC (and other polluters) is required to report to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) how they will handle their pollution/waste problem by performing an environmental impact statement. Historically the NRC has been allowed to in skip the process of having to do an environmental impact statement. An environmental impact statement would expose the nuclear waste long term storage problem and the EPA would not put their seal of approval on such a project.

      How does the NRC avoid this problem? The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is supposed to take ownership and manage the long term storage of nuclear waste. This is how the U.S. government was able to get companies to build nuclear reactors. The companies would not take on the burden of what to do with the waste because the liability would make it so expensive they wouldn’t be able to make a profitable business. What the NRC does instead of submitting an environmental impact statement is they simply say, “we have confidence the U.S. Department of Energy will do something with the nuclear waste” So the U.S. NRC has “confidence” in the U.S. DOE to handle the “waste” problem hence the term “waste confidence”.

    I'm going to this demonstration against fracking on Saturday, but I'd like to be holding a large poster that will raise awareness about Fukushima… any good ideas for color and wording..?

    Dear Michael,

    Fracking for oil and gas threatens our drinking water, our health, our neighborhoods, and our climate. That's why, for the second year in a row, thousands of grassroots activists are rising up in more than 20 countries, on 6 continents, at more than 200 events—on a single day, this coming Saturday, October 19—to call for an end to this destructive practice and to challenge our leaders to pursue a clean-energy future.
    There's a Global Frackdown event near you in Sacramento this Saturday, October 19. Can you make it?

    Yes, I'll be there!

    For more details about the event, check the invitation below. Thanks for all you do.

    RESOLVED that Berkeley urge the U.N. General Assembly to:
    1. Appoint on an emergency basis, within thirty days, an International Independent Commission of Experts (IICE) charged with formulating a plan to reduce, to every extent possible, releases of Fukushima Daiichi radiation into the atmosphere and the ocean, drawing personnel from universities, national research laboratories, other public institutions and nonprofit NGO's in order to avoid conflicts of interest and to ensure adherence to the purpose of the IICE, and insisting on transparency for investigatory, planning and implementation phases of remediation, ensuring that the project plans will be meticulously assessed, critiqued and optimized;
    2. Empower the IICE, with the intention of accurately assessing risks and formulating viable solutions, to investigate the site with the cooperation of the Government of Japan, including full access to the site, to relevant government documents and staff, and to personnel and documents of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), operator of the site;
    3. Direct the IICE to publicize a report within ninety (90) days with a risk-based strategic plan that addresses all existing and emergent problems with a minimum mandate of preventing the abandonment of the site, and the ultimate goal of minimizing public health risks;
    4. Authorize the Commission to employ qualified project managers, technical consultants and contractors, and engineering firms to…

    implement the plan;
    5. Further direct the IICE to continue monitoring, and to publicize regular and accurate progress reports, as well as public health alerts as needed, working with Japan and with the public in an independent and transparent process;
    6. Call upon Member States and the international community to provide expeditious funding and resources for this urgent endeavor to protect the nations of the world from additional impending, irreparable harm.

    RESOLVED that the Council instruct its Health Dept to research & inform the public regarding elevated risk from seafood & other Pacific basin products, & to educate the population of Berkeley regarding specific treatments for radiation exposure & have in place emergency procedures to administer treatment, if necessary, to mitigate radiation exposure.

    RESOLVED that copies of this Resolution be sent to the U.N. General Assembly, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

    Demo, Very nice and you need to send a note over and this is not about just helping Japan or the rest of the world since what has happened has happened. You all must request that all Nuclear Power Plants worldwide must/need to be shut down immediately. Unless you shut all these Nuclear Power Plants down worldwide now what has happened in Japan will simply be repeated again worldwide.

    We need much more than just help for Japan, we need help so that the entire world changes this current Nuclear Energy Path now…. 🙂

    The entire Earth/all life is/are now in peril!

    Quoted from Kevin Blanch" Judge Amul Thapar, in response to a motion filed by the TNP legal team, has agreed to consolidate the sentencing hearing for Megan Rice, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed to permit testimony offered on behalf of all three convicted Plowshares activists by Bishop Tom Gumbleton and Nukewatch's John LaForge.

    The Judge indicated Michael, Greg and Megan will still be sentenced individually.

    The hearing will be held in federal court in Knoxville, TN beginning at 9:00am on Tuesday, January 28, 2014.

    The Judge also refused a request by Greg Boertje-Obed to have two songs played during his sentencing hearing saying Greg could submit the lyrics, but he will not allow recorded music. The songs, My Name is Lisa Kalvelage and By Breath, performed by Duluth's Sara Thomsen, can be heard on iTunes.

    Media reports indicate the recommended sentences for Megan Rice and Greg Boertje-Obed are in the range of 6-8 years while the range for Michael Walli is 10-12 years."

The theme is ‘No More NAFTA’s as this month is the twenty-year anniversary of NAFTA, which has had devastating consequences for working families, small farmers, indigenous peoples, small business and the environment in all three countries and beyond. The pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been described as “NAFTA on Steroids.”

    "We have come an incredible distance and the likelihood of stopping the TPP is stronger than it ever has been.The president and transnational corporations will make an aggressive push to pass Fast Track this month. It is our job to stop them and make it impossible to bring Fast Track or the TPP up again. We can accomplish this and when we do it will be a tremendous victory of the people over transnational corporate power!"

    If there are any friends here who are or were in Japan at the time of the Fukushima accident, we are looking for statements from survivors about how the Fukushima crisis is affecting them, what they think ought to be done, or anything they would like to say. The statements will be read out at Arizona statewide Fukushima memorial events in March. Do you have any words you would like to share with us? Thank you!

    Please share widely. Thank you. There are world wide events happening the week of March 9-March 15 to remember the third anniversary of Fukushima, March 11, 2011. The weekly vigil, ON BEHALF OF PLANET EARTH, at the Japanese Consulate in Boston will be doing a special vigil to remember the 3rd anniversary of Fukushima. We will have special signs and/or banners and we will leaflet. We will invite a large range of people and groups. This special vigil will be on Thursday, March 13th, 8:15AM – 9:15AM, which is the regular day and time of our weekly vigil and we will be at our regular place. Please, join us, at 600 Atlantic Ave, corner of Summer Street, at South Station (take the Red Line). The Consulate is on the 22nd floor of the Federal Reserve Building.

    From the website:

    "This is a two week project, culminating in a concert on a world-famous stage,is a very special chance for a group of young people who have suffered all the problems and dangers of Fukushima to show how music is a lifeline to help them survive and thrive. Their courage and determination will touch young musicians and a wider audience in the UK, and inspire the development of further initiatives to provide lasting and much needed support to Fukushima and its musicians through the creative power of music."
