TheOceanCleanupBlackWith millions of tons of garbage dumped into the oceans annually and repeat incidence of oil spills like the Deepwater Horizon Disaster, it’s the Ocean which has taken the brunt of unsustainable methods from man. In effect, it’s estimated almost 100,000 marine animals are killed due to debris entanglement and continually rising pollution.

To a degree, individual lessening of consumerism and utilizing sustainable methods to re-use and eliminate waste is very beneficial. However, reducing the already-toxic state of the Earth is the biggest concern of environmentalists and engineers, seeking to utilize the technological advances already available. To this avail, it was 19-year-young Boyan Slat that ingeniously created the Ocean Array Plan, a project that could remove 7,250,000 tons of plastic from the world’s oceans in just five years.

Big turnout against seismic testing at Commission meeting.
One thing was very clear from the Fish and Game Commission meeting held in Sacramento on Monday, September 24 – the vast majority of people, including Commission members, environmentalists, Indian Tribal representatives, recreational anglers and commercial fishermen, strongly oppose the PG&E’s plan to conduct high energy seismic testing off the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. Fred Collins drove the 12 hour round trip to speak, the regulated only 2 minutes, to CA Fish and Game Commission, asking them to not permit the Seismic Testing. Taken from an article following the meeting, “We have been here for 18,000 years and we don’t give you permission to take wildlife off our coast,” said Fred Collins, the Northern Chumash Tribal Council Administrator. Fred’s follow up statement to this event and article, “I find it very difficult to comprehend how under duress the animals, plants, trees and living thing, which includes us, how close to the edge of oblivion we have come, when it shows up on your door step it becomes a defiant wake up call. Good to see everyone working to together to prevent this from happening, this is what is necessary for our children’s children to have a future.”

PG&E GREED

EQUALS DEATH TO US ALL!!

The territorial, cultural, and religious rights of the Chumash Nation are being challenged and undermined in insidious ways by Pacific Gas and Electric Company and the Diablo Nuclear Power Plant establishment.  The Chumash Nation has an inherit right and International Right, to determine what is beneficial, safe and unendangered  of our future generations of all  life whom thrive on our lands and waters from Morro Bay to Santa Monica Bay. This  Right and responsibility has been given to us by the creator since time immemorial.

Our Barbareno Chumash Council (BCC) of Santa Barbara denounces all Federal, State and local bodies  and especially PG& E  of the possible, forthcoming or future destruction of our relatives off the coast in our waters. Any  government that does not come to the defense of the defenseless, must now listen and act  to our  Chumash Peoples traditional ways and rights.  Because of the gravity and seriousness of the proposed Seismic Testing  we need to call on all peoples to act and voice their concerns to stop this act of terracide. This testing must not begin and the perpetrators must be exposed.
