Diablo Canyon Nuclear Reactors to Be Replaced With 100% Renewable Energy
June 21, 2016
SHARING GOOD NEWS IS BEST OF ALL - THIS IS GREAT! :) We can be #FossilFree603!
We cannot replace nuclear power with fracked gas and increase our carbon emissions. We must replace it with renewable energy that is carbon neutral. Nuclear energy is problematic in that we have never resolved the radioactive spent fuel issue. We have other viable options. This is a great move in the right direction.
"An historic agreement has been reached between Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Friends of the Earth and other environmental and labor organizations to replace the Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors with greenhouse-gas-free renewable energy, efficiency and energy storage resources. Friends of the Earth says the agreement provides a clear blueprint for fighting climate change by replacing nuclear and fossil fuel energy with safe, clean, cost-competitive renewable energy."
