California Radiation Map after Meltdown - Paul Frey

Potential extent of radiation after meltdown

To protect organic food, wine, farms and families from nuclear power plants located near active earthquake faults, America’s first organic winery has assembled an evening of speakers and discussion around nuclear energy in California and the California Nuclear 2012 Ballot Initiative to close the State’s two nuclear power plants which sit near major active earthquake faults.

Organic Pizza (made with ingredients grown at Frey Winery) baked in the winery’s beehive outdoor oven will be served along with Frey organic wine.

Speakers to be announced, presentations will be given, petitions and information will be available to sign and take. Local music provided.

A nuclear meltdown in California would potentially result in the winds carrying the fallout to both the Central Valley and Los Angeles basins, settling into forests, streams, farms and cities.

Diablo Canyon and San Onofre Nuclear Power Plants operate near some of the largest population centers and most important agricultural lands in the US. The March 2011 triple meltdown and large radiation releases at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan have brought the risks and cost of nuclear power to the forefront of public debate.

California’s two Nuclear Power Plants, both built in the 1970’s, are approaching the end of their 40 year design life, and have been plagued with problems for many years, both sit on active Earthquake faults. San Onofre has the worst safety record of the nation’s 64 nuclear power plants, as the recent January, 31st accident and radiation release attest.

It is time for California, the nation and the world to begin a rational and fact based discussion about the costs and dangers of operating old, poorly designed and poorly sited nuclear plants.

California has excess energy without these two nuclear power plants. In addition, renewable energy alternatives exist and conservation measures can be enacted to add to our energy supply. The Japanese have made this clear, after shutting down 50 of its 54 nuclear power plants in response to the Fukushima Disaster.
