Friends of the Earth alleges PG&E and NRC coordinated to spin positive messages about Diablo Canyon
December 17, 2014
An environmental group has alleged that members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) collaborated with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to spin positive information about the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.
Friends of the Earth—a group that’s also petitioned to have Diablo Canyon shut down over seismic issues—said in a Dec. 16 press release that PG&E and the NRC “may have worked together to counteract widespread news coverage.” The group based the assertion on emails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
