Daniel Hirsch Reveals How NRC Plus PGE Covered Up And Denied Earthquake Faults Near Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant - Earthquake Faults And Risks Under Diable Nuclear Plant Are Much Larger Than NRC License Allows, Potential Quakes Are Way Beyond Building Design Limit

PGE AND NRC NUCLEAR INDUSTRY NEGLIGENCE AND INCOMPETENCE THAT ENDANGERS COMMUNITIES AND PUBLIC HEALTH EXPOSED




Hirsch heads CommitteeToBridgeTheGap.org and is a lecturer at the University of California in Santa Cruz.

His testimony shows that from Humbolt Bay to Bodega Head to Diablo Canyon PGE has consistently chosen nuclear sites on earthquake faults and the NRC has consistently failed to enforce its own seismic safety standards.

Now, although one of it's own Senior Inspectors has reported that San Onofre, located in a tsunami zone near San Luis Obispo, is out of safety compliance and called for the plant's shutdown, the NRC has failed to take action.

Despite the recent discovery that Diablo Canyon sits on the intersections of 13 active earthquake faults capable of releasing far more seismic force than the reactors were designed to withstand, PGE is applying for an extension of it's operating license without making any upgrades and without a re-licensing hearing.

As other segments of this historic hearing make painfully clear, the NRC's non-enforcement of it's own rules and staff recommendations post-Fukushima has become standard operating procedure for a so-called 'regulatory agency' more committed to industry profits and the promotion of nuclear energy than the protection of public safety.

Sadly, this was Senator Boxer's last hearing as Chair of this important Committee. The gavel will now pass to leading Republican climate change denier Sen. James Inhofe.

SUMMARY

Source/credit; Brandon Weber

Nuclear power and technology used to be hailed as the saviour of mankind, but it has turned into an expensive albatross hung around the neck of humanity, dooming it to extinction if it is pursued much further. All nuclear plants are located in either tsunami zones, earthquake zones, flood zones or near volcanoes.

Any of these natural disasters can and will take out nuclear plants, as Fukushima proved. It is time to shut them all down, as they make up only about 5 percent of the power generated globally. Renewable energy can supply all of the power needed by humanity, according to many studies and real life examples today.
