California’s Shutdown Imperative
In the following preview clip from the forthcoming EON documentary SHUTDOWN – The California-Fukushima Connection (ShutdownDoc.tv), Linda Seeley, Spokesperson for Mothers for Peace, and David Lochbaum, Director of the Nuclear Safety Project at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Co-Author of FUKUSHIMA – The Story of a Nuclear Disaster, explain why the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant near San Luis Obispo – run by indicted safety regulations violator Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) – is California’s Fukushima-waiting-to-happen.
Located at the intersection of no less than 13 earthquake faults, in a tsunami zone, storing over 6 million pounds of highly radioactive waste, and run by Pacific Gas & Electric (the utility recently indicted for criminal negligence in the San Bruno gas explosion), Diablo Canyon is now California’s ‘last nuke standing.’
After its success last year in shutting down Southern California Edison’s flawed San Onofre nuclear generating station (SONGS) between San Diego and Los Angeles, the Nuclear Free California movement is focusing its attention on Diablo Canyon, just north of Santa Barbara.
One down. One to go in California.
The Spring fundraising campaign for the SHUTDOWN documentary-in-progress on Indiegogo ends midnight, May 5.
Even after the Indiegogo fundraiser ends, you can still support the project with direct contributions to EON, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization.
