Dear Bindy, I have an idea

But before I tell you what my idea is, you have to watch this video first. Don't even complain. I watched a movie-length video of a cat and bird today because of you, and I'm still haunted by that awful car accident you sent me a few days ago.

I was surprised to learn that you live relatively close to the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. Your town is my vacation spot for life, and I have to say I'm feeling a little paranoid and also concerned.

So the mission I have for you if you choose to accept . . .

Try to keep an open mind . . .

Maybe you could bring a friend . . . or your daughter . . .

Mothers for Peace.

Get Involved!
Become an Ambassador for the Mothers for Peace
Since 1973, the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace has played a unique role in the struggle to assure that Diablo Canyo
  1. Donate money to help with the costs of legal intervention.
  2. Volunteer to help with fund-raising and event-planning. Such volunteers would not be expected to attend general meetings or to become experts on technical or legal issues.
  3. Invite a spokesperson from Mothers for Peace to come and speak at your book club, service organization, or any group that would be interested. Contact: Jane Swanson, 595-2605 or
  4. Share your concerns about nuclear power with your friends and let them know why you are a supporter of Mothers for Peace. Hand them a brochure or direct them to the website:
  5. Consider planned giving. Mothers for Peace is a partner of Leave a Legacy on the Central Coast, and there is much helpful information about how to make provisions in estate planning at the website:
Individuals can make a difference. Become a part of our efforts to preserve and protect the Earth.

Contact the Mothers for Peace regarding further information, future meetings, or to be added to the mailing, e-mail, and/or telephone lists.n Nuclear Power Plant operates as safely as possible and that the radioactive waste is safeguarded during the millennia it will remain radioactive. This group of local citizens has obtained the services of the best attorneys and expert witnesses in the nation, and it uses the available legal processes to hold the Nuclear Regulatory Commission accountable for protecting public health and safety in accordance with the laws and mandates of Congress.

Mothers for Peace believes that we owe it to future generations and to the environment to continue this role of nuclear guardianship.

Here are several ways you can assist the Mothers for Peace and serve as Ambassadors to educate others in the community.

Be honest, Bindy . . . what are you thinking right now? Are you into it? I know we don't have time for this, but aren't you curious to check out these mothers? And then, you can write about how freaking awesome the organization is and how it changed your life and what we can do to help.

What's to lose?

And while you do that, I'm going to figure out a way to check out this. Right now, their meeting times conflict with my work schedule. But how can we ever make the earth safer if we're going to let a few scheduling conflicts stop us?

Remember the earth tattoo. Enough said.

One more video.
