Although Noyo News does not like to be alarmist, it’s important for everybody to know the potential results of an 8.0+ earthquake.
If the unthinkable happened: dual meltdowns at the Diablo Canyon and San Onofre Nuclear Power Plants, with a slight southwest wind blowing, it would take out Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, the S.F. Bay Area, Sacramento, and the entire Great Central Valley of California. No more cities, no more people, no more animals birds or fish, no more food growing, no more water, no more soil. All contaminated with poisonous nuclear radiation.
Not just for a little while, but forever.
There is no way to justify the continued operation of these plants. Not after what we’ve seen happen at Fukushima, and not with our knowledge of the catastrophe caused by Chernoble.
The only option before us is clear: the immediate shut-down and decommissioning of both these nuclear power plants, with dry-cask storage and eventual removal from near-tidal areas of all stored spent fuel rods, as soon as possible.
