Re: “Safe, clean, and reliable

The anonymous writer hiding behind the pseudonym above appears to follow the "fearmonger playbook" religiously. The key technique is to invent some Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) condition that sounds scary to a reader that is not familiar with the plant and then raise misleading or downright false claims regarding the outcome. I appreciate that Jeff Stallman is rebutting such fearmongering. You may learn more about the safe, abundant, reliable, cost-effective and emission-free power from DCPP at the Californians for Green Nuclear Power, Inc. (CGNP) at CGNP dot org. CPUC Intervenor CGNP strenuously opposes PG&E's wasteful plan to abandon DCPP after only 40 short years of operation. If DCPP is abandoned in 2025, the result will be even higher power rates and millions more tons of carbon being emitted annually by in-state natural gas-fired power plants and out-of-state coal-fired plants. (Any new solar or wind generation will be "too little, too late.) PG&E's shareholders will benefit at the expense of PG&E's ratepayers (also known as you and me.) The plant is designed to last well beyond 60 years, just like a large hydropower dam. When measured by the metric of the number of deaths per unit of energy generated, nuclear power is as safe, or safer than solar or wind.

Re: “Time to gang up on our county representatives

On behalf of Californians for Green Nuclear Power, Inc. (CGNP), a local nonprofit corporation, I delivered CGNP's final oral rebuttal at CPUC headquarters against the allies of fossil fuel that want to shut down Diablo Canyon on November 28, 2017. I learned that the proposal to shut down Diablo Canyon was developed during secret meetings over a six-month span. CGNP has gathered information from energy and climate experts in our testimony. The replacement of reliable, emission-free Diablo Canyon power by new wind and new solar by 2025 is a physical impossibility. During a half-year period ending on January 31, 2017, Diablo Canyon generated about 108% of ALL of California's solar power - or about 178% of all of California's wind power. If this proposal is accepted, the reality will be the importation of huge amounts of PacifiCorp's really dirty coal power from Wyoming, at a greater cost to ratepayers than if that power was produced by keeping Diablo Canyon open!
