Freeze our Fukushimas - Four years later, NRC rejects Beyond Nuclear and 10,000 co-petitioners' call to close Fukushima-style reactors | Beyond Nuclear


After nearly four years of behind closed doors deliberations, on January 15, 2015, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued its “Final Director’s Decision” rejecting the April 13, 2011 emergency enforcement petition filed by Beyond Nuclear along with more than 10,000 co-petitioners from around the country. The public emergency enforcement petition called for the immediate suspension of the continued operation of the General Electric Mark I boiling water reactors in the U.S. that are identical to Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors units 1, 2 and 3 that exploded and melted down following the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Why decommission California's last-nuke-standing, PG&E's two aging, out-of-compliance nuclear reactors, built on multiple earthquake faults in a tsunami zone, run by the company facing multiple Federal indictments for safety violations in the San Bruno gas fire disaster?

Shutdown Diablo Conference – Save the Dates!
NoNukesCAheader2
We hope you’ll be joining us at the Nuclear Free CA meeting on January 24-25 in San Luis Obispo, ( Download flyer PDF )
We’ll have an exciting conference to develop a strategy to shut down Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors – our own potential Fukushima. Located in San Luis Obispo, on the beautiful California coast, two aging reactors are savagely fissioning adjacent to 13 earthquake faults in a tsunami zone and operated by PG&E, currently charged with over 30 federal felonies for criminal mismanagement. It’s time to shut them down – and to insist on the safest possible management of the deadly radioactive waste. Diablo Canyon nuclear waste canisters have conditions for cracking after only two years of use!
