End of Nuclear in California?

Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power PlantLast week PG&E announced an agreement with several environmental and labor groups to close down California’s last remaining nuclear power plant in Diablo Canyon by 2025. How did this agreement come about? What does this mean for California’s energy future and for the future of nuclear power in the United States? Show host and Earth Island Journal editor, Maureen Nandini Mitra, discusses these questions with two veteran environmentalists who were involved in the historic two-week civil disobedience action against the plant back in 1981 — Rochelle Becker executive director of the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility and Tom Athanasiou of EcoEquity.
