Shut Down Diablo


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will be taking comments on what you think about their plan to store highly radioactive waste on our seismically active coast for the next 300 years.” (Santa Lucian, Nov. 2013)

If you disagree as I do, make your voice heard at the meeting scheduled for November 20.

The NRC is exposing the people of this county, state, nation, and world to the possibility of a horrendous nuclear accident. There is no scientifically proven solution for safely disposing of nuclear waste.

The waste is stored in unprotected, vulnerable pools. The only solution is to stop making waste by shutting down the plant and moving the waste to dry casks. The waste in dry casks survived Fukushima; the open pools did not.

A major earthquake at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant is possible according to the U.S. Geological Survey. What will happen then?

Another Fukushima.

Please attend the November 20 meeting: Courtyard Marriott, 1605 Calle Joaquin, San Luis Obispo; 6 p.m. open house, 7-10 p.m. meeting. See the mothersforpeace.org website for further information.
