Seismic Protest

by David Gurney

In a strange concurrence of events, during the same week that the California State Lands Commission approved a "seismic testing" plan by
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) that will kill and maim whales, dolphins and porpoises, these same creatures have been showing up en masse - to the very harbor where the "testing" is proposed to occur.

The sight of whales lunging for krill, and spyhopping next to kayakers in Avila Bay, has attracted international attention.

Onlookers and tourists, both locals and from around the world, are being treated to the thrilling spectacle, which has received national media
attention.

Some are saying that in addition to enjoying the local krill, the whales are trying to tell us something: P.G.&E.'s plan to fire underwater canons
at a lethal 250 dB will instantly deafen and kill every living thing in a large area of ocean on the central California coast, and should not be allowed to proceed.

Today, there was a protest scheduled to call attention to PG&E's unwise plan, and to ultimately shut down the unsafe Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station - that silently looms over all the inhabitants of the Central Coast.
