The Sierra Club of South Carolina will be organizing a bus leaving from Columbia, SC for ANYONE who would like to attend the EPA public hearing in Atlanta, GA on July 29th.

On June 2nd President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a historic plan to cut carbon pollution and stop the worst effects of climate disruption. The Clean Power Plan is our nation's first major action to cut dangerous carbon pollution from our largest polluters, 30% by 2030, and will help spur a clean energy economy that can drive down electricity bills and create hundreds of thousands of dependable jobs.

You can sign up for your free bus ticket(s) to go to the EPA here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/atlanta-climate-march-and-epa-hearing-south-carolina-bus-tickets-12323506941

More than two months after Plutonium and Americium leaked from the supposedly leak-proof underground nuclear weapons waste storage facility in Carlsbad, New Mexico, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) still does not know what caused the leak almost half a mile underground, but on April 17, an exploration crew found increasing radiation levels before retreating to safety. DOE plans to send more teams, or robots, into the storage area to find the source of the radioactive contamination.
