Please help stop seismic testing off Ca Coast: update 9/26

Postby marinaTKB » Sat Sep 22, 2012 7:24 am

Update 9/26: 40,000 emails, broken fax machine, website crashes -- your voice was heard! California Fish & Game directs staff to attend the upcoming California Coastal Commission meeting on October 10th in Oceanside, to make sure everyone in the state knows they will not be tolerating any destructive activity in our Marine Protected Areas off the coast, such as the newly minted Point Buchon State Marine Reserv
e. Feel free to e mail a 'thank you for being giants' to the Fish & Game Commissioners at: fgc@fgc.ca.gov

We need letters to the California Coastal Commission before their meeting Oct10 to take action against seismic testing: Snail Mail or FAX your concerns to the California Coastal Commission at:

California Coastal Commission
Central Coast District Office
Dan Carl, Deputy Director
725 Front Street, Suite 300
Santa Cruz, CA 95060-4508
(831) 427-4863, FAX (831) 427-4877

Recently, whales, dolphins and porpoises have been showing up en masse on the central coast. Do you think they are trying to tell us something? If you live in California or care about the environment, please help and don't let seismic testing precedence be set on the Central Coast. Besides causing mass devastation to marine life permanently, all water activity needs to be halted in an area to be determined when they are testing. This means no boating, kitesurfing, surfing, no dogs swimming in water, etc. San Onofre coastline is next....

This seismic testing is expected to yield only moderate mapping results and, according to Fish and Game Commissioner Richard Rogers, would "cleanse the Point Buchon State Marine Reserve of all living marine organisms" including Sperm, Pygmy Sperm, Humpback, California Gray and Great Blue Whales, and many other species of fish and marine mammals, right down to the plankton.

this is NOTHING LESS then WAR ON EARTH- CC%%

Just sent this letter to Dan Carl, Deputy Director at the California Coastal Commission
(feel free to copy and paste into your own):

September 23, 2012
Dan Carl
Deputy Director
Central Coastal Commission, District Office
725 Front Street, Suite 300
Santa Cruz, CA 95060-4508

Dear Mr. Carl,
Please. Don’t. Allow. Seismic. Testing. At. Diablo Canyon.
In doing so, it appears countless marine wildlife will be harmed and/or killed. I have a hard time believing PG&E would be allowed to do anything so stupid. If this is for real, please stop it.
As an avid surfer, kite surfer and ocean lover, I look to you, the Coastal Commission to manage corporations who may put their own cause in front of rational and humane thinking.
If there are other organizations or individuals I should be contacting on this matter, I expect to hear from you. My email address is above and is a good way to reach me.
Thank you very much,


Kirk van Moon
