Close Diablo Canyon

Close Diablo Canyon, and end nuclear power in California once and for all!

 

 

Why Close Diablo Canyon?

  • Diablo Canyon sits on the Central Coast, near numerous active earthquake faults in an historic tsunami zone. It is at risk for a Fukushima-like earthquake, tsunami, and meltdown disaster. 

  • Since Diablo Canyon opened in the mid-1980s, San Luis Obispo County has changed from a low-cancer county to a high-cancer county.

  • State health data show that normal radiation releases from Diablo Canyon are sickening and killing residents in the surrounding area, especially infants and children.

  • Diablo Canyon’s Once-Through-Cooling system damages the ocean ecosystem by taking in some 2.5 billion gallons of seawater daily and discharging it back into the ocean 18° F warmer, thereby killing over a billion fish larvae and other marine species annually.

  • In the 2013-2014 Transmission Report, the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) determined that Diablo Canyon is not a “must run”  facility needed to maintain grid support and reliability.

  • Diablo Canyon’s 2,200 MW of electricity can be replaced by economically competitive renewable sources of energy, which will generate thousands of high-quality jobs.

The Undersigned support the immediate closure of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant.

I support this cause and could not agree more that we need to close this Power Plant. And work towards a safer and cleaner energy for our future and healthy generations’ sake.

There are other options for environmental resources with not radioactive waste disposal that at the end cause irreversible damage to humans and the environment.

The increase of seal pups deaths in the area and high incidence of starfish literally melting is a sign that man’s ignorance is killing off species at an alarming rate. Aging nuclear plants pose an imminent to humans and all marine life. Shut them down!
