Surprise, surprise.... Diablo Canyon made the 'list'.

Mega Earthquakes And 50 - 250 Ft Tsunamis Have Happened Historically, Will Happen Again! Nuclear Plants Are Vulnerable To Tsunamis, Earthquakes And Volcanic Ash, Which Brings Down The Grid

HISTORY OF OPPOSITION AND NUCLEAR DISASTERS

myla reson  "On June 30, 1979 then Governor Jerry Brown thrilled over 40,000 Californians gathered to oppose the licensing of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant by promising that he would fight to prevent the NRC from ignoring the will of the people that the license be denied - people were exuberant - they thought that the Governor's promise would be enough - it was not - and for close to thirty years the plant's high level radioactive waste has been piling up on the California coast just outside of San Luis Obispo. For nearly thirty years the plant has been leaking radioactive tritium and emitting radiation - For nearly thirty years the nuclear industry has had it's way with California - it's time way past time to shut Diablo down." http://youtu.be/4kvSlVblE4I

40,000 people showing up to protest, and a governor's political opposition was not enough. Thousands of people chaining themselves to the gates and then going to jail was not enough. The plant was approved and started generating power, plus huge amounts of radioactive poisonous heavy metal gases.


Nuclear History: Fukushima, San Onofre, TMI, Chernobyl, Diablo Canyon.. 

Every word he speaks is the truth, though someone who has never heard this before may have a hard time believing it.

EVERY NUCLEAR PLANT EMITS HUGE AMOUNTS OF POISONOUS HEAVY METAL GASES, 24 HOURS PER DAY, 365 DAYS PER YEAR


Every Nuclear Reactor and Recycling/Production Facility Emits/Vents HUGE Amounts Of Beta/Gamma Particles, Noble Gases, Iodine 131, And/Or Tritium

DIABLO CANYON BUILT ON ACTIVE EARTHQUAKE FAULT LINE


Daniel Hirsch lays out the long, sad history of PGE and NRC nuclear negligence and incompetence at Diablo Canyon in this excerpted testimony before Senator Barbara Boxer's Committee on Environment and Public Works, Dec. 3, 2014.

Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant was built on an active earthquake fault line, just like Fukushima was. The spent fuel pool has been crammed with 400 perent more highly radioactive spent fuel than it was originally designed for.

PGE OVERLOOKED KEY SEISMIC TEST


Jebus March 27, 2015 "PG&E overlooked key seismic test at Diablo Canyon nuclear plant

By David R. Baker Updated 7:01 pm, Thursday, March 12, 2015
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. replaced $842 million of equipment at the heart of the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant without first making sure the new gear could pass a vital seismic safety test required in the facility’s license, The Chronicle has learned. Starting in 2008, PG&E swapped out the plant’s old steam generators and reactor vessel heads without evaluating whether the replacements could withstand a major earthquake on the Hosgri Fault — just 3 miles away — and a simultaneous loss of cooling water within the reactors.

Fukushima failed from the earthquake. That's a fact. The PGA that day was 3 times the engineered design. No one can estimate the severity of an earthquake. 

Expert urges California nuclear plant closure over earthquake threat
LOS ANGELES – A senior federal nuclear expert is urging regulators to shut down California's last operating nuclear plant until they can determine whether the facility's twin reactors can withstand powerful shaking from any one of several nearby earthquake faults. Michael Peck, who for five years was Diablo Canyon's lead on-site inspector, says in a 42-page, confidential report that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is not applying the safety rules it set out for the plant's operation.

PUC Corruption, NRC Sleeping Nuclear Regulators Ignore Public And Community Safety Concerns

FALSE ASSUMPTIONS, COVERUPS AND LIES

The following lawyer video provides a little insight into the false assumptions made about both Fukushima and Diablo Canyon nuclear power plants.



When Diablo Canyon was originally built, nuclear 'experts' widely proclaimed that this earthquake fault would not move for at least 100,000 years, and quite possibly it would not move for MILLIONS of years. Thus, the nuclear power plant would be safe, and there would be no risk to residents living around the plant. The nuclear experts said that with the new multilayered safety systems put in place after Chernobyl, that no nuclear plant could melt down for one million years. 

The nuclear experts said the same things about Fukushima Daichi, and we all know how that turned out. The 'experts' also claimed that no large tsunami could hit Fukushima, or Diablo Canyon, despite historians and other experts testifying that the opposite was true, on quite a regular basis.

RACHEL MADDOW REVEALS DETAILS ABOUT DIABLO CANYON THAT WILL SHOCK YOU

Rachel Maddow explores some details about Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant that may shock you, and then again, maybe not.. After all, this plant is named after you know who.... Let Rachel entertain you for the next 4 minutes. Enjoy!



Of course, the nuclear industry also does not want you to know many other things. If you feel like becoming an expert, dive in... 


Sacrifice Zones, Nuclear Power and the Sacrificial Victims System Is Spreading Globally As Part Of Predatory Capitalism

PBS; LOCAL TOWNS AND EVEN STATE GOVERNMENTS HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO SHUT DOWN OR PREVENT A NUCLEAR PLANT FROM BEING BUILT


http://youtu.be/fUo1yaE79TM



If you are a Republican, you should oppose all nuclear plants, just for the huge bloated federal government over reach in this area. Talk about big government forcing something on local people who don't want it, don't need it, and then being forced to pay for outrageous cost over runs on top of it.

ONE BILLION FISH ARE SACRIFICED EACH YEAR, WITH 2.5 BILLION GALLONS OF COOLING WATER PER DAY

Via Angela_R January 24, 2015 "An estimated one billion fish are sacrificed per year because of Diablo Canyon.

"• Diablo Canyon alone causes some 80% of the damage done to the marine environment from all of the California coastal power plants combined. If Diablo Canyon is exempted, the Once 

Through Cooling policy has effectively been gutted and a major state marine protection initiative will be dead. 

• Diablo Canyon’s antiquated once through cooling system draws in an estimated 2.5 billion gallons of water per day and discharges that water back into the ocean some 20 degrees Fahrenheit hotter. In the course of this intake and outflow, it is estimated that annually the  reactors’ cooling system sucks in more than one billion fish in early life stages—most all die."

Whistleblower Michael Peck, a senior member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), is calling for the Diablo Canyon nuclear reactor to be shut down — pending an assessment of its ability to withstand a major earthquake. Peck, who was Diablo Canyon’s lead inspector for five years, asserts the NRC isn’t applying its own safety rules for the plant’s operation. Unlike other federal whistleblowers, who Obama and the FBI are busy locking up, Peck is participating in an NRC review process that permits employees to appeal a superior’s ruling…"

Bottom line, every nuclear plant is very vulnerable to terrorists parachuting in, flying into the spent fuel building and destroying the pool, or disabling the cooling system, which would then result in a meltdown.

ALL NUCLEAR PLANTS HAVE TO BE SHUT DOWN BEFORE NEXT CARRINGTON EVENT HAPPENS

SUMMARY

Bottom line, there are zero carbon and zero nuclear answers. It is possible to get rid of all nuclear power plants, without losing ANYTHING of sustainable value. As of 2014, nuclear energy supplies only 4% of total global energy. That much can be saved by switching to LED lights, with some extra left over. 

Global Decline Of Nuclear Energy - New Renewable Energy Production Outpaces Nuclear
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/07/amory-lovins-global-decline-of-nuclear.html

Humanity does not need nuclear energy to supply energy or anything else that cannot be done better, cheaper, less expensive or free. Solutions with a lot less risk to everything that nuclear energy pretends to 'solve' for us are available, but will never see the light of day as long as the nuclear monopoly gets to run the show and control the mass media coverage.
