A passionate call to save Diablo Canyon
In a recent opinion piece for the San Luis Obispo Tribune, Heather Hoff describes her conversion from nuclear energy skeptic to advocate and lays out the case for keeping the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant open beyond its planned closure in 2025.
Hoff, who is an operations procedure writer at Diablo Canyon, tells how she spent years "excessively and sometimes annoyingly" investigating her concerns about the safety of nuclear after she was first hired at Diablo Canyon. She adds that she almost quit her job after the Fukushima accident until realizing that many concerns about that event were triggered by "fear of nuclear, rather than nuclear itself.”
Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, near the nation's capital, Orano USA is a leading technology and services provider for decommissioning shutdown nuclear energy facilities, managing used nuclear fuel, conducting federal site clean-up and closure, and the sale of uranium, conversion, and enrichment services to the U.S. commercial and federal markets. In the nuclear medicine field, Orano Med is developing a new generation of targeted therapies against cancer using the unique properties of lead-212 (212Pb), a rare alpha-emitting radioisotope and one of the more potent therapeutic payloads against cancer cells.
