@Jean HehnBradley @MikeHenderson you don't have used up batteries because you recycle them with no new mining. We never need another battery manufactired ever- just recycle the ones that exist I agree solar farms are a jerkoff- thats no accident- notice how they are placed right where PG&E can suck up the juice and sell us our own solar power?
Also, they put solar in the desert so as to set precedents over our environmental laws like the ESA

@MikeHenderson @Chgobrd MH you are a typical loudmouth no nothing. Talk about speaking on subjects you know nothing aboutt bro, you're the king of dim. The fact is, we can't live if we CONTINUE using oil - period. Mother nature made the rules, not me, so don't focus on people who are trying to educate. You are NOT one of those, BTW, you are clueless. I agree that oil and gas are never going to run out. That is true, there's no 'peak oil' that was a creation of the oilies. But the sun is clean, free, decentralized, doesn't cause wars or asthma, and it has run all things on Earth since the beginning of time. Now do us a favor and STFU.

you really think America is going to swallow the same old tired BS?
Maybe before Katrina and Sandy et al, before acidification, acid rain,
drought, flood, sea rise- but no longer. Your oil company doublespeak is
a thing of the past. We know big oil wrote USA energy policy when
cheney let them into the whitehouse. We found their signatures in the
guest book. How stupid was that?? Non of the things you mention can't be
made of cornstarch or sugars. Bottom line is, solar and electric cars
are superior by far to the oil oil burning klunkers, no matter how fancy
the commercial. Stop drinking the kool aid! EV1.org

The Oily democrats have voted the good coastal stewards like Pedro Nava out and ran pro-oil candidates against them, as in the case of Susan Jordan, for instance. The problem is rank and file dems who have no control because they won't withhold their votes to get change.

Burden of proof is on the toxic polluter, not the complainant. Overpopulation will be solved by nature. We can make it easier on ourselves via a controlled descent, through stabilization of food production. Oil products: no need for our 'stuff' to be made from oil, food starch will do just fine.
Humans are overpopulated and highly destructive. Go Earth friendly. Eco system friendly. On Facebook: No More Fracking Oil
@MikeHenderson @JoeyRacano Wrong you are. I take navy showers, grow my food, use biodiesel and my vehicle and home are solar.
The wrong equation: California + Fracking = the big one?The correct equation: California + continued fossil fuel use = Game Over! www.drivingthefuture dot com EV1 dot org
It is a strategic mistake to fight fracking on or offshore. That is a
fools argument. There is no 'safe' way to burn fossil fuel, no matter
how the fossil fuel is procured. The only argument we should be
entertaining is if we should stop burning oil gas and coal, or not. With
the climate out of control, the answer is obvious- and so is the
question. Stop falling for the same old stupidity. Make the switch
immediately to all electric cars powered by home rooftop solar panels. www.drivingthefuture dot com
@MikeHenderson @CeesTimmerman@hopeforpeacenow What about the radiation it releases? The methane? And doesn't methane make CO2 more dangerous? What happens when all goes 'right' with fracking- we get more fossil fuel to pump into the atmosphere that is ingested by the sea and increases acidification and kills our reefs? Seismic Testing, Navy sonar, methane, radiation, pollution, war, WHERE DOES IT END Mr. Timmerman? Did Dick Cheney tell you it was ok?

@MikeHenderson @JoeyRacano@ThomasGardinier@DesurtTrippur Since the world began, all living things both plant and animal have been solar powered. But I guess it doesn't work, is that what you're trying to say? EV1.org drivingthefuturedotcom
@ThomasGardinier @MikeHenderson@DesurtTrippurI don't see any reason why sunlight has to be efficient at all. The lions share of solar energy passes us by and continues out into space- we dont need to be efficient while using solar- there's more than we could ever hope to use. Efficiency is based on some feel-good notion that does not apply.
@MikeHenderson @JoeyRacano@nickc1969Sam old sorry excuses for destroying your grandchilds world, I see. Let me set the record straight before you launch into another mindless diatribe- all we need to do is put solar panels on every roof and switch all dealerships to selling electric cars. Thats it! And it would be free of charge for everybody, because we could just take all those subsidies we have been using to keep big oil afloat, and use it for home rooftop solar panels and all-electric cars for the masses. www.EV1.org www.Drivingthefuture.comjoey racano
@nickc1969 It would indeed be easy to do that but it would also be stupid too. Source control is the way to keep the ocean clean not testing for contaminants after the fact. The first thing the oil company would do is start their carny 'alibi' game, saying you were testing too close instead of outside the ZID (zone of initial dilution) and then they would say 'well you can't prove that came from us' and so on and on. The ocean is not a garbage pail and it is not your profit center either. Get the F off the water with that dirty business. Joey Racano www.oceanoutfallgroup.com

@Chgobrd Are you asking me to provide evidence that the city of San Diego is using a waiver of section 301(h) of the federal Clean Water Act to dump 50 billion gallons of less-than secondary treated sewage into the sea each year from Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant into Cabrillo National Monument? Uh, it's a matter of public record, just go look. This is the last such waiver in California! I stopped it with my non profit (Ocean Outfall Group) twice already, once in 2004 and again in 2009. Both times, the sitting Governor (first Davis, then Ahnold) overturned the decision, allowing the dumping to continue. oceanoutfallgroupdotcom

@MatthewCase @ThomasGardinierno there isnt- we should be doing neither
@AndrewSturdevant you must work for them
@ThomasGardinier nonsense- solar panels on home rooftops can run all electric cars EV1dotorg
Congress needs to remove the waivers from the Clean Water Act, also called 'NPDES Permits' By comparison, San Diego has an NPDES Permit (waiver) that lets them dump 50 billion gallons of sewage a year at Point Loma- with extra fecals in the discharge!!!!oceanoutfallgroupdotcom

The problem began when the rank and file democrats voted for Jerry Brown. And Obama. The democrats are garbage, who have us everywhere the republicans did and more.

@Joey RacanoSadly, when the workers left, they left us with a lot more than just 5 million dollars. They left us with a nukie plant that generates 500 lbs of highly dangerous nukie waste, or super-unstable fuel that will remain deadly for a million years, with no one to keep an eye on it once PG&E is defunct, the nation dissolves, the coastline melts away and erosion takes its timeless toll.

So far I haven't seen any replies to questions about the Modesto IVP meeting on Marine Protected Areas (Modesto, perfect place to talk about the ocean- NOT). Catherine Rehies-Boyd was one of the panelists, having been chair of the Blue Ribbon Panel on MPA implementation, also President of Western States Petroleum. And the question stands- in light of new revelations that fracking has been going on offshore in California for some 20 years with no public knowledge input regulation or studies, how is it conceivable the Chairwoman had no knowledge this was taking place?Still waiting,Joey Racano, DirectorOcean Outfall Groupwww.oceanoutfallgroup.comOn Facebook: attacking fracking
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Independent Voter Project Conference Sparks Controversy Over IVN.us Funding
Friends,Why didn't Catherine Reheis-Boyd mention the Fracking was already being done off the California coast while she chaired the MLPA Blue Ribbon Panel? This is very troubling. Jerry Brown and Fran Pavley teamed up to ALLOW Fracking -unregulated- to continue in our state, yet this letter is trying to portray it differently. Fracking is incompatable with our MPA network, and the state waters are in a state of emergency with 2 oarfish, 7 Bottlenose Dolphins, and a Beaked Whale all washing in within a 2 week period, and within days of Geophysical Seismic Surveys being done for the extraction industries. With sonar, seismics, mass die offs, unregulated fracking offshore, acidification, Fukushima, Once through cooling, a desal unit proposed, sea stars melting- you people seem to have your head in the sand. Are you aware of the sea otters with listening devices sewn into their abdomens and no funding to remove said devices? And many of them died in the process as a staging portion of a seismic project at Diablo Canyon that ultimately was never approved? Those otters are still out there.Let's get together and make some real paradigm change instead of always rolling over. Joey Racano, DirectorOcean Outfall Groupwww.oceanoutfallgroup.com

Even with congressional 'approval', the USA going into Syria would be a violation of International Law. In fact, the USA has, since 3003, been engaged in one international war crime after another and must be held accountable.
Even with congress, it is still a violation of international law. Our government is already a war criminal and being pursued by international elements.

Editor,Thank you for this wonderfully researched expose' of what is obviously a shadowy business. Simply put, PG&E seems to be running the state regulatory process, and perhaps even at the federal level somewhat. The fact that PG&E was allowed to finance studies from which it stood to directly benefit is criminal, no doubt about it. And Dr Tinkerstein is certainly no friend of this threatened species. Who is in line to investigate the crime of having moved forward without being granted regulatory approval by the California Coastal Commission? This is a huge injustice to the regulatory process, the people of California and especially to those poor Southern Sea Otters, who now languish in a purgatory of extra-regulatory vivisection.An investigation is needed and overdue.

But it's not coastal dependent. They are only on the coast because they have a waiver (316b) waiver from the Clean Water Act, which allows them to suck in seawater with their cooling intake and dump it back out above ambient temperature. This results in destruction of larvae by the billions, and if the plant loses the waiver, they are no longer on the earthquake faults or the coast. This is not a coastal dependent industrial development. Just an industrial development in the wrong place. They should move inland and upgrade to a cooling tower configuration instead. There's a good use for the 64 million dollars.On facebook: Stop the Diablo Canyon Seismic Testing

Morro Bay Harbor Department get paid by the boat slip rent in the Morro Bay Marina. The Marine is mere feet from the Morro Bay State Marine Reserve. Harbor Department wants to dredge the Marina, so they can make more money, a clear conflict. But dredging the marina may cause 'take' in the SMR when dredging suspends and transports toxics now locked in the anaerobic environment. Last night, the Morro Bay City Council discussed awarding contracts for the dredging anyway and Fish and Game is making excuses about why the dredge is allowed to go through. This is putting the entire MLPA process in jeopardy. If this SMR is compromised, they will all fall like dominoes. We need a public hearing. At that hearing, Morro Bay Harbor Department and their friends who want to dredge can show the science that proves dredge will not cause 'take' in the SMR.
