A lawsuit filed in Sacramento Superior Court seeks to halt the decommissioning of the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant until effects of the shutdown on the environment are determined. The suit contends that closing the plant will worsen air pollution in the Central Valley because of the need for gas-fired plants and other sources to replace Rancho Seco's power generation. The suit was filed on behalf of UC Davis radiobiology professor Marvin Goldman, Daniel St.

The radioactive beagles are long gone, their frozen carcasses hauled off to a nuclear waste dump in Washington state along with 140 tons of radioactive dog sewage. Their legacy, however, has jolted residents of this environmentally conscious college town, which declared itself a "nuclear free zone" a decade ago. After all, this is a community where the bicycle is king, recycling is a popular pastime and smoking is banned even on downtown sidewalks.

A national center to research global environmental and climate changes will be established at UC Davis, University of California officials announced Thursday. To be funded with an initial $6-million grant from the U.S Department of Energy, the project is expected to help better understand the causes and consequences of the greenhouse effect and find ways to avoid catastrophic climate changes. The greenhouse effect is caused by carbon dioxide and other gases that accumulate in the atmosphere.

launched two years ago amid vigorous protests over its radioactive fuel supply--will fly within 800 miles of Earth at 8:28 tonight, taking pictures as it passes on its way to Saturn. Critics had warned that the 72 pounds of radioactive plutonium on board Cassini posed an unacceptable threat to human life if the craft crashed, either on launch or during the fly-by. But the Oct. 15, 1997, launch was successful, and protests have mostly quieted since then.

The Soviet nuclear reactor accident at Chernobyl vented amounts of long-lived radioactivity comparable to that released by all the atmospheric nuclear weapon tests since the dawn of the Atomic Age, but that poses no serious worldwide health hazard, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory reported Tuesday. The conclusion is based on study of the amount of cesium-137 released by the explosion and fire at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant about 60 miles from Kiev in the Soviet Ukraine.
