They said they were not protesting the USGS and that they respect the scientific research produced by the scientists there. Their message was for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The Raging Grannies, an anti-war and environmental activist group, led the protest. They said that the NRC has been rubber-stamping licenses for nuclear reactors and granting extension...

As a result of the corrupt American College for Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) guidelines, workers in California are forced to take drugs and were even refused acupuncture treatment under these rules. This national conference...

Hopefully, Governor Jerry Brown and Natural Resources Secretary John Laird will show some courage, break with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's abysmal environmental ocean policies and instead work to implement comprehensive policies along the California coast that protect the marine ecosystem from water pollution, water diversions, oil spills, corporate aquaculture, military testing, wave energy projects and other human impacts, rather than just penalizing fishermen and gatherers.

This special Delta "Stewardship" Council report by Brett Baker, along with editorial comments by Restore the Delta staff, is very enlightening about what is going on with the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. "It certainly shows that if Delta residents don't speak up about their homes, farms, communities, fisheries, Delta related businesses and their way of lives, all could be lost to a bunch of people more interested in selling water and growing low value crops and crops for export at our ...

textUS Nuclear Emergency Planning Needs an Overhaul by via Mother Jones
Last Friday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he wants to see the Indian Point nuclear power plant, located 38 miles from New York City, shut down. "This plant in this proximity to the city was never a good risk," he explained. Cuomo was hardly the first person to express concerns about the plant, which supplies power to New York City and its suburbs. A day before the governor's statement, the nearly four-decade-old site was one of 14 US nuclear plants cited for safety "near-misses" ...
