Fossil fuels, nukes etc. are remnants of the past... advocates of such are on the wrong side of history. Fossils and nukes entail unlikely, but extremely catastrophic consequences... e.g. Santa Barbara Channel 1969, The Gulf BP blow out, Exxon Valdez, the Gulf Wars, Fukushima, Chernobyl.... Renewables are the safe and peaceful path forward.

NEWSFLASH ... New graduation requirement for all UCSB majors... "THE DANGERS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE - 101". I hope the entire UCSB community realizes the severe damage they are doing to the future value of their degrees... They are trashing the reputation of UCSB, and hence themselves every weekend this nonsense is allowed to continue. As people look at national media film clips of Del Playa, it looks more like clips of Lake Havasu or other spring break toilets... At least Havasu doesn't have the violence. Why the violence?? The entire UCSB/ Santa Barbara community needs to come together to stop this madness ASAP.

@Bimbo... Good point! If Diablo Cyn is in fact in a Tsunami zone, then all bets are off. Has the NRC addressed the Tsunami issue? Awareness is 99% of this issue. Nice that we are gradually phasing out energy sources that have potentially catastrophic consequences for human life, and the environment. Kudos to Capps!!

So sad for all involved.... So many lives ruined. For what?? Maybe in addition to the Funk Zone, we should christen the lower State St. area the Drunk Zone(or has that already been done?)? Alcohol causes SO many problems, what does it even bring to the table?? Oh that's right, tax revenues, but i would imagine that once the numbers are run... What with enforcement costs, prison costs, Etc. it's a huge net drain on SB and society in general. Please be careful out there this Holiday season... Especially in The Drunk Zone. Cheers??!!

Congrats to the Frontier Group and to Mr. Unterreiner.... The Frontier Group sounds like a great resource.... And in our own backyard! Maybe, they could shed some light on the wisdom (lack ?) of Caltrans persistent desire to pave over Summerland and Montecito to solve 21st century traffic problems w/ 20th century solutions.

On Taps for Arlington West
Posted on November 8 at 7:45 a.m.
Arlington West was such a loving and moving memorial to the killed, maimed, and psychologically damaged Americans of the Mid East wars.... Thank you to all who made this possible. I wonder, if they had erected crosses for ALL the human beings who were killed, if West Beach would have been big enough??
