"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.

Edisto River Conflict Reveals Need for Greater Protection of SC’s Rivers

Page_08_Button_01

California is facing one of the worst water crises in its history.  The state's drought has drawn down lakes, rivers and reservoirs that are needed for industry, agriculture and drinking water.  A number of communities will run out of water in forty- to sixty-days if there is no rain.  If South Carolina does not plan carefully for the future use of its water, it may face the same crisis.  We will be forced to choose among agricultural, industrial and recreational use and habitat protection, as is happening in California.

2014 Leadership Pledge Drive

Leadership_Pledge_Meter_-_140226_0953

At the January Executive Committee meeting, we announced the Leadership Pledge Drive and passed out the pledge cards.  I am proud to announce that we raised $6,500 in pledges at that meeting, toward our goal of $10,000 from our   leadership.  Group delegates were asked to take home a stack of pledge cards and pass them out to their group’s ExComs and then mail them back.

As we head into the March Appeal when all South Carolina Sierra Club members will get a letter and be asked to donate, it will be important that we can report that we have 100% support from our leadership.  Anything less is unacceptable at this point.  We’ve been struggling to keep the chapter office open. National gives us less and less every year and has let it be known chapters are on their own and must involve and engage themselves in serious fundraising.  And that starts with the Leadership.
