    Nobel Prize Goes to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

    Over 135 countries agreed at the UN to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Two nuns, Carol Gilbert and Ardeth Platte, spoke here in Colorado recently about how young people worked very hard this year at the UN to form a coalition to produce a treaty to ban nuclear weapons. Once 50 countries have ratified the treaty, it will become law. Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Jody Williams, Ai Weiwei, Herbie Hancock, and Martin Sheen all support the treaty. Countries that have nuclear weapons refused to participate in drafting the language of the treaty. The nuns had earlier served sentences for pouring their blood on top of the cover of a nuclear armed missile silo in Colorado. http://www.icanw.org You can ask banks to divest from nuclear weapons companies.

    Good News! Diabolo Nuclear Plant Will Be Shut Down

    California's only nuclear power plant will be shut down and replaced with renewable energy, energy storage, and increases in energy efficiency. This is a great victory as it will make California safer by removing the risk of a nuclear accident from rising seas, an earthquake, or terrorism. Also, it was made by organizing cooperation between environmental groups, unions, and workers. Link.
