|Diablo Canyon from Wikipedia|
In California, Californians for Green Nuclear Power is supporting the continued operation of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear plant. This citizen's group is entirely volunteer and self-funded. Several of them recently carpooled to Sacramento to testify in front of the California Energy Commission.
Now you can help them, help the nuclear industry, and help Diablo Canyon! But you have to do it by 5 p.m. today. (California time).
A group called Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility has accused Diablo Canyon of not being seismically safe because the plant supposedly did not analyze the effect of a huge earthquake…directly under the plant! The Alliance does not acknowledge that scientists analyze earthquakes by analyzing the result of earthquakes due to faults, not earthquakes that that they assign to occur at random locations.

Here's the PG&E report: Central Coast California Seismic Imaging Project. I found the first pages of the Technical Summary the most useful.
