Green Party calls for safety shut-down & phase-out of nuclear power plants in state, citing Fukushima disaster and unacceptable risks & costs to public

As the worst nuclear power disaster in world history continues to unfold at Japan's Fukushima nuclear site, and as we face the likelihood of multiple reactor meltdowns and failures of radioactive fuel pools, the Obama administration continues to provide the nuclear industry with billions in taxpayer subsidies and loan guarantees for new nuclear plants. During his trip to South America, President Obama signed new nuclear agreements with Chile and other countries, designed to enhance profits of the US nuclear industry.

PRESS RELEASE: Dec 10, 2010

Militarism as Cause and Consequence of Climate Change

Expulsion of Organizer from COP16 Leads to Cancellation of Press Conference from Climate SOS, Biofuel Watch, and Global Compliance Research Project

(Cancun, Dec 10, 2010):

As climate negotiations in Cancun become increasingly chaotic and the outcomes uncertain, over 70 diverse environmental, peace and social justice organizations declare that on this 62nd International Human Rights Day, we must recognize that all efforts to address climate change or human rights will fail unless we contend with the “elephant in the living room”: militarism, and a logic of Might is Right. The group sent their statement (available at www.climatesos.org) to delegates at the COP16, and to President Obama. On the same website is a factsheet with detailed resources on this topic.

WHO'S THE REAL SPOILER IN FLORIDA'S SENATE RACE? PDF Print E-mail
Posted by Florida Greens   
Saturday, 30 October 2010 10:10

Calls for Democrat Kendrick Meek to step down from the U.S. Senate race because he could dilute Independent Crist's chances of beating Republican Marco Rubio is an ironic inversion of the usual "spoiler" scenario. Here a mainstream party candidate is cast as the spoiler, threatening the success of an independent candidate. It's a special irony that a Democratic party-machine candidate should be pinned with the "spoiler" label, considering the Democratic Party had blamed its failure in election 2000 on the Green Party and Ralph Nader.

Spoiling is a matter of perspective. In our PLURALITY voting system, when more than two candidates compete, each candidate can view one of the others as spoiling his chances. It is usually justified on the basis that only two (Republican or Democrat) are legitimate deserving candidates, and the third is an interloper who really has no right to screw things up. Crist justifies his run by claiming to hold his former mainstream party's banner against a takeover by extreme right wing forces. Rubio's justification is that Crist is a deserter from his own party who is spoiling Rubio's chances. Meek's mainstream party legitimacy is eroded by his lower standing in the polls against Crist, who is anything but an outsider independent candidate, being a prominent established creature of Republican politics. A truly independent or third party candidate with popular support would have unquestionably become the butt of this race from the start.

Greens Laud Independent Gubernatorial Candidates ARTH & KHAVARI; Call For Election System Overhaul PDF Print E-mail
Posted by Florida Greens   
Friday, 22 October 2010 13:34

The independent candidacies of Michael E. Arth and Farid Khavari for Florida Governor, including the recently terminated candidacy of Bud Chiles, reflect a phenomenon this election season of voter dissatisfaction with our two dominant parties, inspiring candidates to buck the mainstream duopoly party line. The intrepid Arth and Khavari offer innovative and comprehensive programs deserving an honest public hearing, programs resonant with Green Party values. The substance of their campaigns is in stark contrast to those of their Republican and Democrat competitors, who offer no solutions to our economic woes, but more of the same that got us into this mess.

However, our election system is not designed to give these fresh voices a chance in our public discourse, nor the voter the hope of actually electing one of these renegades.

ELECTION NOV 2: Green Party of Florida Guide to Ballot Amendments PDF Print E-mail
Posted by Florida Greens   
Saturday, 16 October 2010 19:53

 

Election Day is Nov. 2 and early voting starts Monday, Oct. 18.  There will be 6 Constitutional Amendments on the Florida ballot.

AMENDMENTS:

Amendment No. 1   Repeal of Public Campaign Financing Requirement
(Sponsored by The Florida Legislature)
The Green Party of Florida recommends voting:  NO on 1

This Amendment asks us to get rid of what little public funding we have for candidates. That's the wrong direction!  Rather than continuing to have corporate and international interests choosing candidates hiding behind political action committees (PAC's) or directly donating, it would be better by far for all candidates to be running using public dollars ONLY. In the end, we'd have less corruption and better results for citizens. While Amendment No. 1 appears to save money, the people will pay if it passes.

Move to Amend's David Cobb Completes Rebel Rousing 13 Stop Florida tour! PDF Print E-mail

We The People Declare Independence from Corporate Rule!

David Cobb

If you didn't make it to one of the Move to Amend tour stops in September, you missed a fun and exciting event, that not only informed, but motivated, giving people new hope. Local guest speakers added valuable perspective to David Cobb's remarks. People came early, stayed late, and left jazzed.

At the Miami tour kickoff, Mayor Philip Stoddard, of South Miami, gave a colorful account of the shenanigans of Florida Power & Light (FPL) to push through new nuclear plants at Turkey Point, and high powered transmission lines along U.S. Highway 1.  Also an FIU professor, Mr Stoddard had made a name for himself as a community organizer opposing FPL, co-founding CASE/Citizens Allied for Safe Energy, which propelled his successful run for office. Mayor Stoddard found humor in that FPL had gone so far as to assign a person to tail him around.

Florida Greens Oppose Nuclear Cost Recovery "License to Steal" PDF Print E-mail
Florida News

Thursday, 22 October 2009 10:39
Caution NuclearUnder an ill-conceived law approved by the Florida legislature in 2006 in Florida, private utility companies are allowed to collect funds, in the form of rate increases to their customers, to pay the advance costs for nuclear power plant construction. These funds can be collected even if the nuclear projects have not yet been licensed and approved by state and federal regulatory agencies, and if the projects are not approved. If the nuclear plants are canceled by the utilities for any reason, the corporations can pocket the millions they have fleeced from their customers, all with permission from the state.

"Granting FPL and Progress Energy permission to raise utility rates to pay for risky and unnecessary nuclear plants is like giving them a license to steal," said Michael Canney, GPF spokesperson and representative in a Petition to Intervene in the federal licensing process for the Levy County nuclear plant. "Nuclear cost recovery is a form of corporate welfare designed to "fast track" nuclear power development and guarantee industry profits at the expense of the public interest. The PSC has become a rubber stamp for the nuclear power industry."
