Local Activists for a Nuclear-Free Future
Legal Intervenors in Diablo Safety Issues since 1973
San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace is a non-profit organization concerned with the local dangers involving the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, and with the dangers of nuclear power, weapons and waste on national and global levels. Additionally, Mothers for Peace works to promote peace and a nuclear-free, carbon-free world, utilizing conservation and sustainable resources.
We are the Guardians of the Future
We are facing the prospect of losing much, if not all, of the progress which has been made to preserve our planet. The current adminsitration has vowed to abandon the United Nation's Paris Agreement on climate change, increase coal production, dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency - basically deplete and destroy our natural world for the benefit of money, jobs, and industry. Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant and very active in our work as guardians of the future.
Mothers for Peace argues for closure of Diablo Canyon in 2019
On Friday, January 27, Mothers for Peace through Ojai-based attorney Sabrina Venskus, submitted expert testimony to the California Public Utilities Commission showing that Diablo Canyon should be closed in 2019, not 2024. news release
One of Mothers for Peace's expert witness, nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen, chief engineer for Fairewinds Associates, Inc, provided testimony demonstrating unsafe and unreliable conditions at the plant. Arnie Gundersen testimony
Another expert witness is David D. Jackson who works with the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences at UCLA. In his testimony, Dr. Jackson explains the many types of seismic damage to the plant in case of an earthquake. Among his assertions is that the substantial risk of earthquakes at Diablo Canyon nuclear plant has been underestimated, and that the seismic studies relied upon evaluate only a part of the risk which affects any decision of how long to continue operation of the two Diablo Canyon reactors. David D. Jackson testimony
Mothers for Peace are cosponsoring the testimony of Women's Energy Matters. Robert Freehling is an expert in renewable energy and shows that needed replacement energy can be supplied by renewable resources long before PG&E's proposed closure date of 2025. Robert Freehling testimony
Mothers for Peace is cosponsporing Part V of the testimony of the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility. This section opposes PG&E's request that the CPUC allow the corporation to charge the rate-payers $52.7 million to reimburse PG&E for the funds it spent on license renewal between 2009 - 2016, before it offered to shut down the two Diablo reactors.
