Chumash Alliance Against Diablo Canyon Seismic Testing

Protect Sea Life, Sacred Chumash Cultural Sites, and Religious Beliefs from Seismic Testing.

Diablo Canyon Power Plant also known as PG&E is attempting to get approval for 3D Geophysical Seismic Testing.  If approved Marine Life living between Cambria and Guadalupe will be under seriouse attack by Air Cannons booming 250 decibles into 500 square nautical miles of the ocean.  These powerful Air Cannons will blast every 10 to 20 seconds.  These booms will travel into the water and 10 miles into the earth's crust, destroying fragile and sensitive Sacred Chumash Cultural Sites.  These blasts are so powerful that PG&E suggests fisherman, divers, kayakers, boaters (including our tomol paddlers), and surfers remain out of the water due to cause of illness and even death.  In PG&E's own Environmental Impact Report it states a large list of animals that will be killed and the negative impact on submerged Chumash Cultural Resource Sites.
