Just look at this nuclear power station! It’s astounding that it takes experts to see that it was a lousy place to put a nuclear reactor in the first place! Since the NRC won’t do their job (no real surprises), Friends of the Earth is trying to save everyone from the next Fukushima-Chernobyl like disaster in California; on the Pacific.

TESTIMONY OF DOUGLAS H. HAMILTON The Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility 2012
From Testimony by Douglas Hamilton for the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility in 2012: “The Diablo Cove fault. From the establishment of PG&E’s Geosciences Department in 1985 through its presentations at its SSHAC workshop in late 2011, this previously well-documented zone of faulting extending through the foundation of DCNPP Unit 1 has never been mentioned.

Nuclear watchdog petitions federal regulator to close unsafe Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors” Posted Aug. 26, 2014 / Posted by: Kate Colwell See more at: http://www.foe.org/news/archives/2014-08-nuclear-watchdog-petitions-federal-regulator-to-close-unsafe-diablo-canyon-nuclear-reactors

Several pages from their lengthy petition may be found below. The entire petition may be found here. http://libcloud.s3.amazonaws.com/93/26/5/4826/Friends_of_the_Earth_NRC_petition.pdf Please give as generously as possible to http://www.foe.org and any other groups bringing legal challenges regarding nuclear safety-stopping nuclear power. Alliance For Nuclear Responsibility seems to have a legal department too: http://a4nr.org This isn’t cheap and can save the planet. Small donations add up. Not only does this reactor further endanger the Pacific, and California, but Chernobyl taught us that it could even drop lots of radiation in a place as far as Toronto or Chicago, and of course will impact the entire planet. These are the types of people who stand between us and the end of the world, literally.
