Sea Otter Population Recovery is Weak

Below are excepts from "What's taking a bit out of the Southern Sea Otter Recovery?" by Michael Harris, of the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife.  "Currently the Southern California Sea Otter population is not recovering as expected.

4 years after Fukushima: The real lesson

  By Rochelle Becker, Printed in The Tribune, Opinion on March 5, 2015 PG&E will soon submit its post-Fukushima seismic re-evaluation of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, eerily timed to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the tragic accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in Japan.

Stop the release of radioactive water from Fukushima into the Pacific Ocean

From Mothers for Peace:  There are 866 storage tanks at Fukushima Daiichi, each holding 1000 TONS of highly radioactive water, which has been used to cool the reactor cores. This makes a total of 866,000 TONS of water, with 350 tons added every day. In addition, there are 13,400 tons of highly contaminated water in Reactor 1, 15,800 tons in Reactor 2, 16,900 tons in Reactor 3 and no more fuel but 14,500 tons of water in Reactor 4, a total of 60,600 tons! The Japan NRA wants all this water to be discharged into the Pacific, as the site is running out of space to build more tanks.
