A Question of Power
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Twin Peaks Little Theater
14640 Tierra Bonita Rd
In addition to many local grassroots activists and experts, some local luminaries are featured, including Donna Frye (who winds up the video with her admiration for the grassroots organizing done to oppose this bad idea), Mike Aguirre (former San Diego City Attorney who is suing SDG&E for its negligence resulting in fires, and a tremendous advocate for renewable energy generation right here in San Diego, not Imperial County), and Dianne Jacob (SD County Supervisor who has very ably voiced her constituents' opposition to the Sunrise Powerlink in ANY form).
The CA Public Utilities Commission (CPUC - where I worked for 20 years) will be deciding in the next two weeks whether California's ratepayers will pay the heavy price in the decades to come for this outmoded and destructive technology. We must get the word out NOW - TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
See the recent articles in the North County Times and S.D. Union-Tribune about the upcoming decision by the CA Public Utilities Commission on the Sunrise Powerlink, and how the grassroots opposition to this backwards, foolhardy project has had such an impact:
This is the homestretch in the 3-year, county-wide (and beyond), grassroots-organized opposition to yoking San Diego County to 50 more years to fossil-fueled electricity. Come to see this documentary for a very clear and compelling explanation of this struggle and what it means for San Diego County, California and beyond -- and what YOU can do in the next 2 weeks to help us move forward to the clean, renewable energy future. And please invite others!
