Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility
It's not nice to fool Mother Nature, but this April Fools' Day, let's play a trick on Global Warming...
TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS
FOR 5 MINUTES ON
Sunday, April 1st,
at precisely 7 PM ...
The Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility asks all Californians to join us for a fun, simple, and useful experiment.
All you have to do is turn off your lights (and TVs, Computers, DVD's if you wish).
AND HERE'S THE REASON WHY:
Can five minutes make a difference? You bet!
On February 1st, residents of France and Spain turned off their lights for five minutes. The result? A savings of 800 Megawatts in France and 1000 Megawatts in Spain.
Together, that almost equals the power output of either Diablo Canyon or San Onofre nuclear reactors. California utilities CAN measure the difference. More importantly, when the drop in usage is noticed it also helps prove that conservation can make a difference.
Of course, if you turn off your TV, computers and other electric equipment during that period the savings will be even greater. This conservation measurement will be useful to the California Energy Commission in their study of the full costs, risks and benefits of nuclear power.

I asked Mark Jacobs to spell out the IPSEC plan to close Indian Point, challenged him to stand up and lead the coalition...His response was to say everyone was doing what they could. Fair enough, but here is a news flash for everyone....The current stategies deployed by those opposing relicensing aging, brittle reactors is FAILING MISERABLY. That is not a knock, it is a fact...the deck has been stacked against us, as was witnessed in a speech this week from a retiring NRC Commissioner who confidently boosted that 50 reactors were already relicensed for 20 more years, and within a couple more years, all 103 reactors will be relicensed....BOOSTING OF A PERFECT GAME OF THAT MAGNITUDE IS PROOF POSITIVE THE GAME IS FIXED.
I have a plan, or as Arlo Guthrie once said in his song about the pickle, a vision burnt across my mind...I don't want a reactor and its leaking spent fuel pools sitting on the Hudson. We need a movement! The ANTI ENTERGY, CLOSE INDIAN POINT MOVEMENT, and all 21 million people living within 50 miles of these nuclear time bombs have to do to join, is GET INVOLVED, put their hearts, time and a few bucks into making a dream a reality...CLOSING THE INDIAN POINT REACTORS.
STOP ROLLING YOUR EYES FOR A FEW MINUTES, STOP YOUR LAUGHING AND GUFFAWING LONG ENOUGH TO FINISH THIS ARTCLE, AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE YOU'LL REALIZE MY PLAN, MY DREAM IS NOT SO FAR FETCHED.
Why the Indian Point reactors and Entergy are the perfect battle for the anti relicensing folks, why every angry reactor host community should join in our battle.
1. Entergy currently is one of the two BIG BOYS on the nuclear block. Culling out Indian Point from their fleet and forcing them into closure would be enough of a blow to possibly force Entergy into a situation of having to sell its remaining reactors, and get out of the nuclear end of the energy business. New reactor owners mean new public hearings for license transfer, which means second bites at some of the apples for our side.
2. The Indian Point reactors have a horrid safety record, are leaking strontium and tritium into the Hudson River, and after 9/11 no one can argue that they are the reactors most vulnerable to terrorist attack.
How can we win the fight to shut down these ticking time bombs?
1. First, population numbers are on our side...21 million people live within the 50 mile circle of death around Indian Point. In short, wake up the masses, get them involved, and half our battle is done.
2. We can out spend, Entergy, the NRC and NEI combined if our hearts are in this fight! I can hear the naysayers now claiming I am insane....think for a minute folks! We have 21 million people living within 50 miles of Indian Point! A one dollar donation from each one of them is $21 million dollars! The NEI's entire budget for their PR for the entire nuclear industry is $8 million.
Can you imagine if every one of those 21 million people donated just $10 dollars to the cause of closing down Indian Point? That's $210 million dollars, over half of Entergy's entire profit picture from everything they earned in 2006. Now, can you imagine if everyone of those 21 million people were willing to donate $100 dollars a year towards closing down Indian Point and bringing in safe renewable energy to our region? That's $2.1 BILLION dollars, or almost three times the $841 million dollar NRC budget approved by Congress for 2007! YES, WE HAVE THE POWER TO OUT SPEND THEM, OUT LAWYER THEM, AND OUT ADVERTISE/PROPAGANDA THEM...this is what a movement is about!
3. We have local government on our side in this...which would make protests, sit ins and acts of civil disobedience far easier. We have some heavy hitters nationally, and the timing for holding their feet to the fire on this issue could not be better with next year being a presidential election year.
4. This kind of a movement WOULD CATCH THE ATTENTION of both national and international press, and in doing so bring the horrid truth of the 103 aging, failing reactors front and center, and under the media microscope.
5. Let's not forget John Hall in all this...he has the ability to bring the musicians back into this fight, has the ability to give Pete Seeger the gift of seeing the relics that are the Indian Point Reactors closed down and decommissioned.
Call me Don Quixote tilting at reactors on the Hudson, but this radical idea can work. We want the Indian Point Reactors shut down, we want to get the anti relicensing team on the scoreboard in a huge way, and we can do it if everyone will get involved in the Green Nuclear Butterfly's Close Down Indian Point Movement/Coalition.
Remember those good old days when we believed? Want to bring them back again, and once again know the sweet taste of victory against overwhelming odds? Then join us, and do Arlo proud in this new movement. Together we can use our ladders to harvest Entergy's lowest hanging fruit, Indian Point reactors 2 and 3.

Dear All My Relations,
This invites you to join Frank Craven at his home north of NYC for a Fire Ceremony on the Spring Equinox March 18th (New Moon 10:43pm) noon to March 21 at noon.
Address and directions at bottom of this message.
Sacred/ Family/ Activist/ Leadership atmosphere.
We'll gather with those wishing for prayerful meditation around the fire plus gathering in the tipi and the house for other congruent activities like sharing intentions and co-creating our leadership community. Frank will lead sunrise and sunset ceremonies and will support a co-creative atmosphere for other activities such as a sweatlodge being prepared by us on Monday the 19th and an all night Tipi Ceremony beginning 9pm on the 20th and concluding after sunrise on the 21st and followed by a feast.
Please bring a bedroll (a few beds are available) and blankets, towels, warm clothing and sweatlodge attire, Please contribute to the kitchen so we may eat well, some donation to the house, musical instruments, sacred instruments, powerful intent for yourself and the world. We are extending this invitation to all of our friends and family.
No one turned away for lack of funds.
Water is there, tipi is up, firewood is ready, house is nice and comfortable.
Barry Tillman at 646-342-5836 is coordinating the building of the sweatlodge and the Tipi Ceremony.
The Tipi Ceremony on the 20th is untraditional. I take personal responsibility for the success of this ceremony. May we each bring forward our talents and gifts for a spontaneous and creative experience involving many medicine traditions, cultures, technologies, protocols, styles and healing modalities. The outcome may be a more unified community of leaders supporting each others plans and commiting to work together.
We will focus on our ability to generate visions and use the mind. Many have expressed an idea or a component they wish would happen in a ceremony. We will circle up on the 20th at 4pm to plan the evening. We will be discussing the possibilities with each other until then. We hope this gathering builds support for the April 7th Prayer and activities this summer. I expect this prayer to be 5-15 people.
Yours truly, Barry Tillman

It just started with Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen... and a small village under the thumb of an evil gang (cough! Entergy...) which owned everything, the bar, the goods and supplies store, the mayor, the sheriff, the church, the whore house even!
The local town's people were so afraid they couldn't move a muscle, crippled by fear, terrified. So they went to get a gun fighter, who couldn't do it alone, went and got another... and that wasn't enough... so they looked for more. And then they were Seven.
Right now it's more like the Good, The Bad & The Ugly... We know who we are... As a matter of fact Eli Wallach played in both films. We're not nice guys. We're gun fighters, we shoot from the hip, we're fast, we're cool, we're ruthless, we're dudes, we fight amongst ourselves, and your women fall in love with us, cause we're bad boys, we don't bathe, we don't shave, because we're here to get the job done.
Get Entergy out of Dodge!
As a kid I dreamed of being two things, Abbie Hoffman and James Coburn. I once saw a movie where James Coburn played a pirate, A High Wind in Jamaica, and I said to myself, that's me... That's who I want to be. Tall, slim, twisted, inscrutable, sexy, mean, wonderful... and I became that man... and soon, in a few months, I will be leaving environmental activism behind, after 30 years, to join the ranks of Hollywood actors, because I freakin' deserve it after doing their dirty green work for so many years... I want to be the new Vincent Price... I want to play super-villains... I want to relish in my persona.
So you see, Indian Point, for me, it's just honing my chops, a peice of cake really, frosting on it... I haven't even gotten started yet, because after we chase Entergy out of town, we'll track'em down, all the way down, to Bayou country... and like Swamp Thing, we'll bog'em down, drown'em in their own folly.
I'm being accused of driving a poor young woman crazy right now... with my antics... and for the first time in my life, I'm not apologizing for it, because she signed on, we toasted stout over it, and she's in till the bitter end, kicking and screaming if we have to. Sergio Leone once said, "The best characters are the sinners who look like saints."
That's a western. That's a real western... Just ask the Peekskill historian!

Contact Terry Backer:
Long Island Soundkeeper Terry Backer will join environmental activist Nancy Burton at a press conference on March 19, 2007 at 9 AM in front of the Hartford Superior Court (95 Washington Street) to call for converting the Millstone Nuclear Power Station to a fish-friendly cooling system.
A court hearing is scheduled for 9:30 AM on March 19, 2007 on Burton’s application for a temporary injunction to put Millstone in cold shutdown during the impending annual fish larvae migration. The microscopic larvae are swept by the billions into the Millstone cooling water intakes and destroyed.
As Long Island Soundkeeper, Backer has spearheaded federal litigation to convert power plants to closed cooling systems.
“Once-through cooling - what is used at Millstone - is equivalent to a fish-killing machine and it needs to stop,” said Backer.

A) A severely worsening leak in spent fuel pool for reactor one, coupled with a known leak of less severity (currently) in spent fuel pool two would deliver a devastating blow to Entergy's relicensing plans, and both the NRC and Entergy are very aware of this.
B) As spent fuel pool one goes, so too goes spent fuel pool number two, and again Entergy and Indian Point know this.
C) News of a severe leak scenario of a spent fuel pool would be National, if not International FRONT PAGE news, and would deliver a crippling if not death blow to the Nuclear Renaissance, and the whole GNEP iniative...in short, no Nuclear 2010 plan of action, no new reactors here in America, a halt to the NRC's rubberstamping of 104 applications for license renewal, as is now wrongly occurring. Congress would have no choice but to step in and order and ISA of every nuclear facility in America...Goodbye Nuclear Renaissance.
In their quest for a global One World Nuclear Order with America at the helm, have the DOD, DOE, NRC, NEI, NuStart, Entergy, CASEnergy and the entire nuclear industry decided they are willing to place the ultimate bet in their gamble for a nuclear renaissance? Are they hiding a sinister secret, and praying to the devil that they can keep New York City safe from an Indian Point on the brink of the long feared nuclear holocaust, the ultimate nuclear accident, a spent fuel rod fire?
Center for Media and Democracy
Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) is intimately tied into Hill & Knowlton which explains the kid glove treatment given to CASEnergy, and Moore's endorsement of nuclear. These guys control a whole lot of ad dollars.
In December 1953, H&K designed the tobacco industry's strategy for counteracting scientific evidence which linked cigarette smoking to lung cancer, authoring the Frank Statement to the public printed throughout the USA in January 1954. H&K also helped organize the Council for Tobacco Research. As a result, H&K was named a co-defendant of Philip Morris in numerous tobacco lawsuits.
H&K represented the Catholic bishops in America in their campaign against legalized abortion, and the Body Shop International when it came under criticism for making false claims about itself and its products.
Hill & Knowlton also represents Debswana - a joint venture between De Beers diamond mining companty and the government of Botswana. De Beers owns the rights to mine diamonds in the Kalahari, and through Debswana, has played a role in evicting indigenous Kalahari Bushmen from their land. According to Lord Pearson of Rannoch – a Peer in the British House of Lords, "Many of them (Kalahari Bushmen) felt that they had been evicted because Debswana wanted their land for its diamonds".
Hill & Knowlton claims on its website that "an information campaign generated support [for Debswana] among members of Congress, UK Parliamentarians, Members of the Japanese Diet and Members of the European Parliament, as well as numerous media outlets."
Paul Taaffe is Chairman and Chief Executive of Hill & Knowlton, Inc.
Entergy just as ugly and incestuous as they are tied into Burson-Marsteller.
Burson-Marsteller part of Young & Rubicam Brands, working as partners for some of the world's strongest brands, is led by Richard Mintz, who ran the media shop at the Department of Transportation during the Clinton administration. He also served as staff director for Hillary Clinton during the 1992 campaign.
In March 2005, PR Week reported that Burson-Marsteller won a $4.6 million contract, through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Urban Area Security Initiative grant program.
Executives at the Burson-Marsteller PR firm are saying as little as possible about their pro-biotech PR campaign for the Monsanto company.
In January 2004, the Observer (UK) reported that European Women for HPV Testing was a front group being run by B-M campaign for the US biotechnology company Digene. The Observer reported that some of the celebrities cited as endorsing the campaign on the groups website were not aware of the links of the group with Digene.
In April 2005, Jack O'Dwyer's Newsletter reported that Burson-Marsteller had joined with Quinn Gillespie & Associates to launch 360 Advantage, a public affairs shop filled with "key players in George W. Bush's successful presidential campaigns." 360 Advantage is headed by Russ Schriefer, who did advertising with the Bush/Cheney 2000 and 2004 campaigns and produced the 2004 Republican National Convention, and by Stuart Stevens, a "Bush adman and veteran political strategist."

Jim Jones, rather than admit he was wrong, rather than allow failure to see the light of day, chose death, for himself and his followers...how long before enough lies exposed show people the truth of Indian Point, of the nuclear industry, and in that proverbial hour of judgement and enlightenment, how many reactor crews will choose death for themselves, their reactors, and their communities, rather than admit their facilities are a danger to human health and the environment?
NEI, DOE, NRC and the rest of the nuclear industry including Entergy have wrongfully believed in their own nuclear nirvana for decades, ignoring truth after truth that showed those with even a modecum of sense that nuclear was neither a green nor safe energy...problem is, just as with most religious zealots, just as with most cults such as Al Quida, the true believers waiting for their place in heaven with the 72 virgins, truth does not matter, reality easily pushed aside when you have bought into a lie of safe, vital and secure nuclear energy. Praise Allah, Thank You Jesus, and whoever says leaking spent fuel pools are a problem speaks blasphemy, and needs to die.
Anything that does not support the one power must be/shall be demonized, any one trying to stop the creation and building of this new nuclear utopia must be silenced at all costs. Nuclear is the Father, son and creator of the hydrogen economy...it has been written, foretold, and so it must be...let the brainwashing begin. Employees, slowly at first, then in mass numbers converted to born again witnesses of the virtues of the GREEN NUCLEAR INDUSTRY that gives them their daily bread. The fact that battery technology is the key to the EV industry is academic, that reality hidden in technology suppression that has gone on for decades. The masses need to think nuclear is necessary for the EV reality to move forward into reality...the lie of nuclear's neccessity is academic, something peasants need not know.
Some of these missionaries know/knew the truth, have escaped before they were sucked into this great dark black vortex of lies and deceit...for these fortunates, their own values and moral compass would not allow them to play a part in the second coming of the black death (the first being the plague). For others, perhaps like Steven Lessard, being a part of the lies, being a high priest in the NuStart Nuclear Coven was too much, and they chose to end their own life, and the lives of those they loved rather than continue further down the passage into the pits of hell that is America's 103 aging reactors and the lies involved in relicensing them. Speculation at its best some will say...true enough. But then Entergy, the NRC and the NEI have no problems speculating on the safety and reliability of aging, brittling reactors, and gambling with our lives that they can keep them safe for another 20 years...how quaint.
Come, drink my blood in memory of me, accept Entergy donations in the community in rememberance of your body and skin that will be burned to vapors when reactor three blows up....in the name of the father, the son and the holy fusion process...amen.
Jim Jones, Jonestown, obscure references and inferences to the Holocaust, ignore them children, they are the ANTI NUKERS, a blight on the silken fabric of our societal cloth...they should be gathered up and sent to the mines up on the moon...now you know why George Bush called for the building of that settlement to be built over on the dark side...some mine for uranium, the melange of our time, while the non believers bury our waste in the Dunes on the dark side of the moon...remember the Third Reich? The nuclear industry promises us a hydrogen economy and a Electric Vehicle in every garage...Hitler promised the peoples car and Volkswagen flourished only after the secind World War. Much like Bush, Hitler claimed a belief in God, and both men see themselves holding dominion over the world. The Germans held old fashioned book burnings to control the flow of knowledge and truth. We instead have George Bush, Dick Cheney and the NRC using 9/11 and National Security as their excuse to remove the truth from our sight, all in the name of the NEI and a New World Order disquised as a Nuclear Renaissance...you are with us or against, and thanks to the Patriot Act, we do know where you live.
Yes, the relicensing process is fixed, our lives being bartered for 35 pieces of Judas silver as Entergy for 20 more years of profit...make no mistake, the pro-nuclear renaissance movement is a cult of the most sinister kind, and the deaths from its existence are coming....it is just a question of the when and the where. Tell me readers, "Are we here on the Hudson the next Jonestown event just waiting to happen?"

Green Nuclear Butterfly blogger Remy Chevalier takes on the Entergy corporation, owner of the Indian Point Nuclear power plant in Peekskill, NY with this homage to Bob Dylan.

Music: "Senseless" by Theatre of Tragedy.
Face it, the man, a Georges Pompidou spawn, who while kicking the S.H.A.P.E. out of France, allowed Westinghouse the run of the House of Baguette and Cheese, to build what is now the greatest nuclear threat looming large, so large French anti-nuclear demonstrators get sent straight to jail.
France is sitting on a nuclear powder keg of aging reactors and nuclear waste... leaking, dangerous plants, renewed rumors of lethal accidents going unreported by the mainstream press... it's only a matter of time before one of France's 58 reactors goes critical and bathes all of Europe in a catastrophe of Gargantuan proportions.
Jacques Chirac wants official recognition from the European Union of nukes as a clean, green energy source, this while Germany, Spain and Austria are fiercely anti-nuclear, committed to solar and wind, desperately seeking suitable battery storage chemistry, now in limbo in the black labs at MIT.
Yet the European Union last week already agreed to embrace the nuclear option in a battle to save the planet, as a desperate measure of ignorance and greed, to preserve the powers that be in the seat of supreme autocracy. The reason why I left France, and am here, 30 years later, having foreseen this, asserting myself as a leader in the American anti-nuclear community.
This is an issue that could split Europe in two, again, as well as the whole world... if we're not careful. Anti vs Pro nuclear sentiments are paramount to religious zeal in many people, and societies... those who understand the subtle energies of nature and those who do not! Those who would have us poison the whole world for a quick return on investment, and those who would have us reduce our energy consumption and start on the path of planetary restoration.
We're in dire straights here, and it concerns Indian Point, because what happens on the Hudson, with the Indian Point relicensing, will reflect on the entire survival, of the aging, failing, nuclear industry all over the globe, not just here. I left France in the early 70's. As a child, I was in the same room as Pompidou, I witnessed him hand over my father's land to the ugly Westinghouse Americans... the corporate swine who transformed France into a nuclear waste dump!
To say that nuclear power is cleaner than oil, gas or coal, shows an absurd miscomprehension of the issues involved, an absurd lack of understanding of what radioactivity really is, how it affects all life on earth, energy fields, our genes. The anti-nuclear community in this country knew the score 30 years ago, it still does today... but it's been asleep at the wheel, brow beaten by the millions of dollars spent by the Utilities brainwashing school children into believing the nuclear industry is clean and green... this while a civilian independent safety assessment team can't even enter a nuclear power plant to visit, not so much for fear of terrorism, but for fear of finding out what is really going on... leaking fuel pools, rupturing weld joints... contamination on the order of which mankind has never seen before, seeping into everything, insidiously polluting the air, the water, the land.
The nuclear thugs in the European Union, in league with the international nuclear industrial complex, contemplating an end to their reign of oil and coal terror on mankind, are desperately trying to cling to world supremacy by perpetuating the nuclear nightmare as a guise to preserve their control over international institutions.
It's a ploy... It's a ruse... and I hope the good people of Rockland and Westchester County, as well as the good people of Fairfield County and Manhattan, will not fall for this insanity of cosmic proportion perpetuated upon them. We can end it here, right here, right now, by preventing Indian Point its relicense. Turn the criminal tide of multinational corporate tyranny against nature.
Give the land Indian Point sits on back to the Native Americans to who it belongs. Give America back to its people. Free Leonard Peltier, the way we freed Mandela!!! Have a heart America... Genocide on an entire civilization... then making them sick with uranium mining, giving them red bricks made of uranium tailings, to make homes, to annihilate them... Listen to your conscience good people of Peekskill... Go to the Peekskill Museum... remember who you are, where you are... remember who this land once belonged to!
Save The Planet is the slogan that sits on top the Hard Rock Cafe logo, the Hard Rock now owned by the Seminole Indians of Florida, who never signed a peace treaty with the U.S. Government, who vowed to buy back their land, one burger at a time. This is war, don't kid yourself... We re-empowered the Indian Nation with the means to fleece back the white man... rob him blind... and use the profits to restore this land.
It's too late for the quiet, peaceful not-in-my-backyard resolution of IPSEC... a wind is slowly blowing up the Hudson... a wind of change the likes of which humanity has not seen in a long, long time... a song of reason and love and reverence for this earth, for this land... a song Pete Seeger sang his whole entire life... musicians, who feel, troubadours who weave tales of emotion, of renewed hope and inspiration, who for decades sang at the Clearwater festival... dreaming this day would finally come.
Close down Indian Point. Do it for reason. For respect. For reconsideration. Let the French stew in the poisoned juices of their own pathetic failed imperialist ambitions. Don't let this sad little country sink us into a third World War over Protons and Poetry. Give it up, stand down. Let us be. Let Amerika be!

So,where is Green Nuclear Butterfly jumping into the fray?
Not going to go into details here, but our fearless leader...that would be me, is in the process of recovering from a personal attack. I've been in bed for the better part of the past three days here, and a severe fracture of my right arm has me all but helpless...should get a cast next Friday when the swelling goes down. Trying to use a mouse left handed is being quite the challenge, and hard to get copy to the blog with one finger...but, shall do what I can.
IPSEC on March 8th sent out a notice inviting us to take part in discussions on setting an agenda...a brainstorming session if you will. Glad to see the letter from their list serve, but how much real public input did/do they want when they released the invite to their listserve on the very morning that the meeting is set to take place? If Mark sees this, I have some thoughts, or will try to get Remy to post them up.
Deserving of major article...Entergy/Indian Point want to leave the millions of gallons of radioactively contaminated water right where it sits...under the reactor, and leaking into the Hudson River. Seems they feel this is far superior to them SPENDING REAL MONEY ON THIS ISSUE.
1. Green Nuclear Butterfly is going to launch a YouTube account/channel...your videos will be more than welcomed.
2. Indian Point Plume Tracker...more on this later.
One fingered typing has worn me out, and it is time for another pain pill.
