Say No To Broadwater At July 7th Concert

Join Citizens Campaign for the Environment at Long Island’s Own Live Earth Concert

Rock on July 7 to protect Long Island Sound from her two biggest threats: Global Climate Change and the invasion of the Broadwater Energy Proposal. There are solutions. Celebrating with top musicians, elected officials, environmental leaders, and fellow Long Islanders is a perfect way to make a difference.

On July 7, 2007, Al Gore and his Alliance for Climate Protection will hold the Live Earth series.

Live Earth is a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people to raise awareness about global warming. With 24 hours of music across 7 continents, and performances by more than 150 of the world's top musicians, Live Earth will engage, connect, and inspire individuals, corporations, and governments to take action to solve the climate crisis.

On Long Island the Citizens Campaign for the Environment is hosting a similar event to join this global movement; however, the main objective is to protect Long Island.

As fellow Long Islanders, we hope you will attend our Stop Global Warming, Stop Broadwater concert to protect Long Island and the Long Island Sound on July 7, 2007 at the Brookhaven Amphitheater. What better way to celebrate and defend Long Island than through music?

    Areva forge parts for future US reactors

    Areva, the French nuclear giant, have forged the first parts for a potential US nuclear reactor, based on their EPR design.

    The US company, Constellation Energy, agreed with Areva that the components would be made, even though no new US reactor orders have been made yet.

    By taking the risk and making these components now Areva will be able to speed up construction of a new US plant if and when the US new build program begins.

    Iran and Russia Row over Nuclear Plant

    Iran and Russia are disagreeing over when the Bushehr nuclear power plant will start operating.

    Iranian officials are saying that the plant will be completed in two months and will start shortly after that.

    Russia is building the plant in Iran and says it isn't likely to start this year.

    There have been delays and disputes over payments between the Russians and Iran.

    The Bushehr power plant is part of Iran's public nuclear energy programme.

    Fuel for the plant will be supplied to Iran by Russia. As such it is separate from the international controversy over Iran developing enrichment facilities, which some fear will lead to Iran developing a nuclear weapons capability.

    Study concludes of UK stocks of Uranium and Plutonium

    The NDA, the UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, have concluded a study on stocks of uranium and plutonium present in the UK. These stocks have built up through enrichment, nuclear fuel manufacture and reprocessing in the UK.

    One finding is that the stocks could power three 1000 MWe nuclear reactors for their entire 60-year operational lifetime.

    Compared to coal-fired generation that could avoid the emission of over 1 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.
