Commission calls emergency meeting on Diablo seismic testing

by David Gurney

The California Fish and Game Commission has called an emergency meeting in Sacramento on September 24th, 2012, to address the growing controversy surrounding plans to conduct high-energy seismic surveys in the ocean, just off the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.

The meeting will take place at the State of California Resources Building, First Floor Auditorium, 1416 Ninth Street at 10 a.m.

The Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) company has been given the green light by various agencies in Sacramento to survey the spiderweb of earthquake faults surrounding their nuclear facility. The F&G Commission still has not granted its final approval.

In early June of this year, members of the F&G Commission found themselves in the embarrassing position of congratulating themselves on final approval of controversial "marine protection areas" on the North Coast, just as they were being asked by PG&E to "cleanse" the Point Bushon "State Marine Reserve" and "State Marine Conservation Areas" on the Central Coast.

Activists on California's North Coast were deliberately silenced by a corrupt MLPA "Initiative" when they asked for protections against seismic testing, navy sonar, oil drilling and infrastructure, wave energy, and other threats to MPA's, as intended by the 1999 Marine Life Protection Act. The so-called MLPA "Initiative" was headed up by Big Oil, Big Energy, and Big Agriculture appointees, and informed by "scientists" with gross conflict of interest.
