We discuss nuclear power in California, and the federal government's decision to approve conditional funding to prevent the closure of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant on the central coast
The state's last remaining nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, operated by PG&E on the Central Coast, gets more than a billion dollars in federal funding to keep running for five more years. The California Report gives voice to the debate over its revival. Gary Zimmerman has a lesson on inflation indicators, and Marc Cuniberti shares a Money Matters commentary.
Diablo Canyon is the last nuclear power plant operating in California and has been scheduled to shut down in two phases, the first in 2024 and the second in 2025.For more on this, we are joined live today on the KCBS Ring Central Newsline by Severin Borenstein, faculty director at the Energy Institute at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business and member of the California Independent System Operator Board of Governors.

Gov. Gavin Newsom spearheaded an eleventh-hour effort to pass legislation to extend a lifeline to Diablo Canyon. This 2,250-megawatt nuclear plant supplies 8 percent of the energy produced in the Golden State. Under pressure from lawmakers and environmental activists, the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) agreed in 2016 to decommission Diablo when its operating licenses expire in 2024 and 2025. But in light of the recent energy policy environment, California lawmakers had second thoughts.

The California legislature has passed SB 846, extending the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant five years past its original expiration date in 2025. It's California's only operational nuclear plant, located near San Luis Obispo. But the debate continues. Pro-nuclear proponents say shutting down Diablo means killing an energy source that's reliable and cheap, although “cheap" depends on who ask. Opponents say Diablo wastes millions of gallons of water for cooling and sits on several earthquake faults, bringing up concerns over what would happen in nuclear-plant disaster like in the case of Chernobyl or Fukushima. KCSB speaks with those on opposite ends of the debate: pro-nuclear proponent Michael Shellenberger, and opponent Linda Steeley with the grassroots organization San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace. Reporting by KCSB's Robert Stark and Ashley Rusch.
California experienced a record-setting heat wave in early September that brought the state's electricity grid very close to failure and forced tough choices on customers trying to stay cool while complying with alerts to save energy. Against that backdrop, the state legislature moved to pass a suite of climate and energy bills, a record $54 billion in new climate spending, and a plan to extend the life of the state's last nuclear power plant — all just days after the state finalized one of the most ambitious rules to stop the sale of new gas-powered cars. What does this big policy push say about the state of California's energy mix? And how is the world's 5th largest economy planning to cope with the intensifying impacts of climate change? Political Climate hosts Julia Pyper and Shane Skelton are joined by Sammy Roth, staff writer at the LA Times and author of the weekly Boiling Point newsletter, to discuss how the clean energy transition is playing out in California and the lessons it can teach the rest of the country.

King Charles III, the former Prince of Wales, has acceded to the throne and brings with him a lifelong passion for nature and environmental causes. As His Majesty takes on a new role as sovereign, the environment and climate torch now passes to his son William, the new Prince of Wales. Also, California has been a national leader on tackling climate change and recently announced two changes to further green the golden state. First, California will ban the sale of most new gas-powered vehicles by 2035. Second, and more controversially, Governor Newsom approved an extension for the life of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power station, which is carbon-free but not without risk. And PFAS chemicals are known as “forever chemicals” because they hardly break down in the environment -- and they're just about everywhere.

The last nuclear power plant in California, Diablo Canyon, is slated to shut down in 2025. But Moms for Nuclear, started by self-described "liberal environmentalists", makes the case that it should remain in operation as a safe, clean, low-carbon-footprint power source. Even Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom lobbies the legislature to keep Diablo Canyon going another decade. Will the campaign to save the nukes finally succeed?

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K433: The Future of California's Last Nuclear Power Plant At a gathering of nuclear professionals and enthusiasts in Anaheim, California, a couple of months ago, the tenor of the conversations about the Diablo Canyon Power Plant — California's last operating nuclear reactor — turned inconceivably hopeful. 數月前，在加州安那罕一場核專業人士與愛好者的聚會上，關於加州最後一座正在運行的核電廠魔鬼谷電廠的討論基調，變得不可思議地充滿希望。 The American Nuclear Society's convention, held for four days in the shadow of Mickey Mouse, could not have picked a better venue to uplift spirits. And no one flashed a bigger grin than Gene Nelson, a standout not just for his towering height but also for his signature headbands and his yearslong campaign to keep Diablo Canyon running beyond a planned shutdown by the end of 2025. 這場在米老鼠陰影下舉行4天的美國核子學會大會，沒有比這更好的地方來振奮精神。沒有人比吉恩．尼爾森笑得更開心了。他引人注目，不只因為高大的身材，還有他的招牌髮帶，以及他多年來一直努力，希望讓預計2025年底關閉的魔鬼谷電廠能持續運轉。 “I thought our chances were zero,” Nelson, a government liaison for Californians for Green Nuclear Power, told the conference attendees about the effort to maintain nuclear power in the state. “What has happened since then, it's been like a snowball.” 尼爾森是「加州人挺綠色核能」組織的政府聯絡員，他向與會者報告加州維持核能的行動說：「我還以為我們沒機會了，從那之後發生的事情就像滾雪球一樣。」 Pushing that snowball is Gov. Gavin Newsom. Although it seemed improbable that Diablo Canyon's supporters could overcome the numerous challenges to maintain the plant's operations, a lot has changed and those hurdles appear to be getting swallowed up in the growing clean energy movement. 推動這個雪球的是州長紐森。儘管魔鬼谷的支持者似乎不太可能克服眾多挑戰來維持電廠運作，但很多事情已發生變化，而且那些障礙顯然正被日益增長的清潔能源運動消除。 Last month, Newsom proposed a measure that would provide a forgivable loan of $1.4 billion to the plant's owner to help resolve permitting, licensing and cost issues. The California Assembly would need to pass the legislation and have it signed in September to make the whole idea possible. 上個月，紐森提出一項措施，將向電廠擁有者提供14億美元可免除貸款，幫忙解決許可、發照及成本問題。加州議會將必須透過這項立法，並於9月簽署，才能讓整個想法成為可能。 In addition, the U.S. Energy Department made $6 billion available to nuclear plant owners to help keep existing facilities operating. 此外，美國能源部向核電廠擁有者提供60億美元，協助維持現有設施運作。 Gunda presented during a public conversation last month about the prospect of continuing the operations at Diablo, which produces about 9% of the state's electricity. 上月一次公開談話中，加州能源委員會成員之一席瓦．岡達談及魔鬼谷繼續運作的前景。魔鬼谷發電量約占該州發電量的9%。 Even authors of a Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology report supporting the extension of Diablo Canyon noted that one of the two units had to be taken offline in 2020, the last time California experienced rolling blackouts. That has prompted some to urge caution. 就連史丹福大學和麻省理工學院一份支持魔鬼谷延役報告的作者也指出，兩座機組其中之一在2020年必須停機時，就是加州最近一次經歷輪流停電之時。這促使一些人呼籲要謹慎行事。 “I was a little bit heartbroken by the governor's proposal,” said Najmedin Meshkati, an engineering professor at the University of Southern California who has inspected many nuclear plants throughout the world. “The word safety is only mentioned once in passing. They really need to bend over backward and go the extra mile to ensure the safety and reliability issues.” 曾赴世界許多核電廠視察的南加大工程學教授納吉米丁．梅許卡蒂說：「州長的提議讓我有點心碎。安全這個字只順便提到一次。他們真的必須盡力且付出更多努力，來確保安全性和可靠性的問題。」Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/6584967

We hope you had a safe and restful Labor Day weekend. For this week's COBT, we had the pleasure of hosting Katherine Blunt, Renewables and Utilities Reporter for The Wall Street Journal and Author of recently-released "California Burning: The Fall of Pacific Gas and Electric and What it Means for America's Power Grid," published just last week. Katherine was quickly thrown into covering the PG&E story in 2018 as the Camp Fire erupted three days after she started. Since then, she has investigated PG&E's complete history to understand all the contributing factors to that tragic and devastating fire. It's a complicated story with serious consequences and her book is a straightforward and insightful examination of not only the fire, but America's power history. Her well-received new book also contains many implications for utilities across the country. In our discussion, we touch on key themes in "California Burning" including the formation of monopoly companies supplying power to California in the early 1900s, the lack of maintenance on nearly 100-year-old equipment which was the catalyst to the fire, the people and infrastructure involved in California's electric power system, PG&E's bankruptcy and restructuring program, the negotiated settlement for fire victims, public perceptions of PG&E, reactions to the book, the pressures utilities face to keep expenses low, PG&E's nuclear asset Diablo Canyon, and more. PG&E has declared the book will be required reading for employees, a promising declaration as they work to bury ten thousand miles of distribution lines and mitigate fire risk for the future. The book is very well written, Katherine was a fantastic guest, and we all feel much more informed. Thank you, Katherine!The Veriten team quickly hit a few key points to start the show: Mike Bradley reported live from the Barclay's CEO Energy-Power Conference in New York and touched on early conference themes, market volatility, recent deal activity and news, and a recent California law on EV production and implications on power generation. Colin Fenton flagged lithium prices, Russian gas flows into Europe, Iranian crude oil exports, and prepared us for the discussion with Katherine looking at California-Oregon border and Palo Verde power prices. As always, thank you for your support and friendship!

The strained electrical grid of the last few days is a good reminder California needs to increase its supply of energy and Los Angeles Times energy reporter Sammy Roth tells the Morning Show with Nikki Medoro part of that plan includes the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, as well as other forms of (hopefully) clean energy.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
SDG&E's Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Geraghty, answers questions about why the California heatwave is straining the state's power grid and why the flex alert is needed and if residents are reducing power use. Then, in the latest twist in the “Fat Leonard” U.S. Navy corruption scandal, federal authorities say Leonard Glenn Francis, escaped house arrest Sunday ahead of sentencing later this month. Plus, Governor Newsom has begun to sign a new package of climate action bills, including one to extend the life of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. And, details on another bill awaiting the governor's signature that would require social media platforms to report hate content data and have transparent policies on that data. Finally, September marks the transition between summer and fall, and while the days are not yet getting colder, times of change call for a new soundtrack. KPBS has a playlist of five new songs to discover this month.
The brutal heat wave taking over the state is expected to last longer and reach higher temperatures than forecasters had anticipated. And that's putting a lot of stress on California's power grid, with state officials asking Californians to conserve as much as possible. Two people have died and hundreds of residents around Weed remain under evacuation orders because of the Mill Fire burning in Siskiyou County. Reporter: Erik Neumann, Jefferson Public Radio Last week, state lawmakers approved a plan to extend the life of the state's last nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon. Many are applauding the legislature's decision to keep its carbon-free energy on the grid — but it's had mixed reactions in San Luis Obispo County, where the plant sits.

Michael Shellenberger is a former gubernatorial candidate in California and the author, most recently, ofSanFransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities. In his third appearance on the podcast, (previous appearances were on July 6, 2020, and May 27, 2021) Michael talks about the California legislature's vote to save Diablo Canyon, nuclear's new-found traction, his run for governor, why he might run for office again, Greta Thunberg, and the “narcissistic nihilism” of climate catastrophists.
On this week's conversation Paul and Wally discuss President Biden's dark and disturbing speech against Trump and his supporters Gov. MLG spends $10 million capital outlay dollars for a new abortion clinic in Southern NM: Also, while Paul reiterates that RGF takes no position on abortion in New Mexico, he frames this move within the context of a new ABQ Journal poll on abortion. Less than a week after banning gas powered cars California tells Californians NOT to charge their cars due to electricity shortages. As Wally and Paul have recently discussed, 2% of all vehicles on the road in CA are electric. Notably, New Mexico is following these policies, but California recently decided to keep the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant open. To date New Mexico appears to have no inclination to keep power flowing from the Palo Verde nuclear plant. Dismal education news this week came from two sources. Lawmakers discuss NM Spaceport and the pipe dream of financial “self-sufficiency” at the facility while Las Cruces area Cervantes contrasts Spaceport w/ Rail Runner and asks the state of New Mexico to pick up the tab. A new ABQ Journal poll highlights support for a pre-K amendment on the ballot this November, but this is hardly a surprise given the choices. RGF is participating in an “open house” for the new Moms for Liberty chapter in Bernalillo County.

Dirty electricity is expected to greet California residents for Labor Day heat relief. California Executive Order signed by Gov Newsom allows ships docked at port to use gasoline/diesel ship power instead of shore power. The EO also suspends emissions restrictions at gas power plants, allows generators to run during restricted times, and allows thermal power plants to pollute more water. While asking residents not to cook, clean clothes, and charge cars. This is just days after the California Clean Air Board bans sales of gas-powered cars by 2035. Meanwhile, begging PG&E's Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant to stay open until 2035 with a $1.4 Billion forgivable loan after pushing for years for it to close by 2025.Let this be a lesson to surrounding states when pushing to remove clean fuels like Propane from your Clean Energy portfolio.
