December 19: a dark day for science and the ocean - by Dan Bacher
The mainstream media, state officials and corporate "environmentalists" refuse to discuss one of the biggest scandals regarding the creation of these marine protected areas - the terminally flawed and incomplete science that these MPAs were based upon and the alarming fact that Ron LeValley of Eureka, the co-chair of the MLPA Initiative Science Advisory Team that oversaw the crafting of these alleged "Yosemites of the Sea," is now awaiting trial on federal conspiracy to embezzle charges. M...

Over 3500 People Attend Indigenous Peoples Annual Sunrise Gathering - by Dan Bacher
“As we gather today to celebrate, we do not celebrate the re-write of history that has become Thanksgiving," said Andrea Carmen, Executive Director of the International Indian Treaty Council.

In reality, on this day so long ago, 700 men, women and children of the Pequot Nation were slaughtered during their sacred Green Corn ceremonies by Pilgrims they had saved during the winter months with their own food."

How will the tunnels benefit salmon, steelhead and other species when they are in fact only spreading the fish carnage from the South Delta to the Sacramento River also? The massacre of Central Valley salmon, steelhead, Sacramento splittail, American shad, striped bass and other species will continue when the South Delta pumps are operating - while the new intake facilities on the Sacramento River will imperil migrating salmon, steelhead and other fish in their major migratory corridor.
