Keeping Diablo Canyon Open – The Devil is in the details

Governor Newsom is actively pressuring your elected officials to keep the aging Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant open. Newsom has promised Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) a $1.4 billion “forgivable loan” to keep it running, plus, the Senate is expected to vote on to keep Diablo open in the next few days!

The Devil in the details: Diablo Canyon talking points

 

First, PG&E, the utility that owns Diablo, made the case that the plant was too old to continue operating safely. That agreement was voted on with our entire state legislature.
Second, not only is our governor leading this reckless and unsafe charge, but, he is promising PG&E a $1.4 billion “forgivable loan” (i.e. your money) to keep it open.
Third, it creates even more nuclear waste that’s deadly for thousands of years with no way to store it safely.

Finally, PG&E, is a convicted felon. They have the blood of 100 manslaughter victims on their hands. Remember the San Bruno gas line explosion that killed eight people? And let’s not forget the Paradise “Camp Fire” that took 85 more lives unnecessarily.

It doesn’t have to be this way

 

With all the wasted tax dollars being thrown at Diablo Canyon, we could do so much more. We could engage renewable power sources with secure energy storage that will deliver reliable electricity forever.
