Re: Divine Strake

THIS IS PERHAPS THE GUTSIEST, MOST DARING, BRAVE THING ANYONE IN THE MEDIA HAS EVER DONE FOR DIVINE STRAKE.

Another thing we can do to stop Divine Strake is to kill its funding. The Budget Continuing Resolution, which will fund government operations until August 2007 has passed the House, and discussion will start in the Senate TODAY Feb 8. This bill already has language in it to cut or restrict the funding for the Yucca Mountain project, and a proposed nuclear fuel reprocessing facility at Savannah River Georgia.

Here is an action everyone should take immediately. Go to your Senator’s contact page, starting at http://www.senate.gov. Send the following email text, inserting the Senator’s name, and your name at the end. For good measure, phone them as well, as early in the day as you can. Do this for every Senator whose page will allow a non-constituent to send him/her a message. (some restrict this by zip code) Send this alert by separate email to everyone you know!

Dear Senator ?????

I understand that H.J.Res.20 the Budget Continuing Resolution starts discussion in the Senate today. In this bill, there is an entire Title with subsections for elimination of earmarks and for funding adjustments. Among the adjustments in the energy section are cuts to the Yucca Mountain project, as well as specific restrictions on the spending for a mixed oxide fabrication facility at Savannah River GA. Given this precedent of cutting or restricting funding for specific projects within this bill, I respectfully request that an amendment be added to this bill, eliminating the funding for the Divine Strake explosives test.
