“Radioactive waste is a problem that we will hand on to future generations.
There is no good solution but we must do the best we can with what we have to work with. The best solution is to stop creating it.


No Bailouts for Palisades or Diablo Canyon!

Act Now! Tell DOE: No Bailouts for Diablo Canyon and Palisades

The suggestion to extend the operational life of Diablo Canyon and Palisades with a bailout program for which these reactors may not even qualify is an outrage and a betrayal to those of us seeking a clean and safe energy future. 

The DOE must make sure the community and workers at Palisades and Diablo Canyon land on their feet, help save the climate, and transition these states to an affordable, sustainable future with good jobs in the new energy economy.

Tell the Secretary of Energy: NO to Nuclear Bailouts and YES to Just Transitions at California and Michigan Nuclear Reactors

“Angry Poodle” on Possible Diablo Canyon Resurrection

This article, “Zombie Power: Governor Newsom Brings Diablo Canyon Back from the Dead: Hedging Our Bets Between Climate Change and Nuclear Catastrophe”, discusses the dangers from climate change, the financial cost, and the lost opportunities for wind energy if the Diablo Canyon Power Plant is not closed as scheduled.


Gov. Newsom: Close Diablo Canyon As Planned!

Gov. Newsom, we’re done with nuclear energy in California! No Nukes

NRWC member San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace has long been anticipating the closure of Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant scheduled for 2024 and 2025. Now, a well-organized and well-funded campaign is trying to link nuclear energy to a climate solution. Governor Gavin Newsom has turned his back on the legally binding Joint Proposal to close the plant, which was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. Newsom is interested in keeping Diablo Canyon open for an undisclosed number of years beyond its safe operating lifetime. We are outraged! It is vital that we all speak up!

Help Us to Support New Mexico’s Governor in Acting to Stop WIPP Expansion!

STOP “FOREVER WIPP!”

The Department of Energy is seeking to modify the nuclear waste permit for southeastern New Mexico’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Dragging out WIPP’s operations decades past the original 20-year agreement violates the social contract made with New Mexicans. WIPP is being equipped to take the waste that will be generated from production of plutonium pits for nuclear warheads, and it was never supposed to do that. An expansion of WIPP will impact the entire country, not just residents of southeastern New Mexico.
