      Can Brown Regulate Fracking in Kern?

      Governor Jerry Brown' administration shut down twelve oil wells in the Central Valley this week amidst revelations that the carcinogen benzine has leaked into fracking waste water at seven hundred times higher than federal standards.

      A Peace Movement Based on Justice

      Read this Vietnam comic book by the young civil rights leader Julian Bond, published in 1967, and I believe you will realize that we still are in a fierce battle between memory and forgetting, between twisted history and true history. Then consider participating in the May 2 commemoration of the first days of the anti-war movement in 1965.

      The Crazy "Rationality" of Chris Kyle's Murder

      I was gripped emotionally by the Bradley Cooper's way of inhabiting the character of "American sniper" Chris Kyle. That's what Hollywood does. Then I remembered a young sniper friend of mine who, when asked what he did, said, "We shoot people and blow shit up." And when I asked him what he thought about the policies behind all the shooting, he simply answered, "that's for the big people above us to decide."

      Taking Action Against Escalation in Iraq & Iran

      PEACE AND JUSTICE ACTIVISTS SHOULD - AT THE VERY LEAST - SEND MESSAGES NOW TO CONGRESS AND TO 2016 CANDIDATES THAT THEY WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IF THE NEW IRAQ WAR TURNS INTO A QUAGMIRE AND THE DIPLOMATIC PROCESS WITH IRAN BREAKS DOWN.

      The Cancers from Kern

      Governor Jerry Brown long has rejected either a ban or a moratorium on fracking in California like those adopted in New York state and France, where citizen outcry has prevailed. Brown's alternative has been to beef up the state's regulatory apparatus with serious environmental scientists and additional staff, claiming the permitting and monitoring system will be the toughest in America.

      Hayden Statement on AUMF

      PEACE, JUSTICE AND CLIMATE ACTIVISTS SHOULD - AT THE VERY LEAST - SEND MESSAGES NOW TO CONGRESS MEMBERS AND 2016 CANDIDATES FOR SENATE AND PRESIDENT THAT THEY WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IF THE WAR THEY VOTE FOR YEAR TURNS INTO A QUAGMIRE. AT THE SAME TIME, THE PEACE MOVEMENT SHOULD NOT SIT OUT THE FIGHT OVER A COMPROMISE WAR AUTHORIZATION BUT SEE THEMSELVES AS A HUMAN VOTING BARRIER AGAINST ANOTHER AMERICAN GROUND WAR. PEACE ADVOCATES SHOULD SPEAK OUT FOR DIPLOMACY FIRST, A NARROW AUTHORIZATION IF NECESSARY, AND A BAN ON AMERICAN GROUND TROOPS. THE GOAL SHOULD BE TO SLOW OR STOP THE ESCALATION.

      Kern, The Mississippi of Fracking

      The Four Corners, illuminated red, is the major U.S. hot spot for methane emissions in this map showing how much emissions varied from average background concentrations from 2003-2009. (Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Michigan, October 2014)When anti-fracking activists end their protest at Governor Jerry Brown's Oakland home on February 7, where will they turn next?

      The governor is not likely (but never say never) to respond by issuing a moratorium on fracking, especially with only 15 state Senate votes in favor. With a 60 percent victory margin in November's election and bold new goals for renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions, he may ignore the protests altogether.
