"When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

obody’s ever tried to fix an underground radiation accident before
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.

Save the Date: Tuesday, April 29, 2014

This is the day when Sierra Club members congregate at the State House in Columbia to lobby our elected officials about important legislation and issues of importance to us.

This year, we're issuing a challenge to all groups: Let’s get 100 Sierrans at the State House on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

PLEASE PUT THIS ON YOUR GROUP CALENDARS NOW, and start planning to bring 10 folks from your group . . . yes, it will require taking that day off from work, since we will spend some time in the morning getting briefed on legislation and then going to the State House.  We'll begin at the chapter office at 1314 Lincoln Street, Columbia, South Carolina 29201 in the Gamecock room on the first floor.  We will begin at 10am, and we should be finished by 2pm.

We are one of the largest, if not THE largest, environmental groups in the state; let’s show the legislature we have a voice, active members and we know the issues.  Start planning today to caravan or carpool to Columbia.
